Hi dieseldog
im dave
my only sugggestion is try focusing on the left front side of the vehicle instead of looking in the bushes.
now that joke session is over i would raise the car and place it securely on jackstands so both front wheels are off the ground and then put the car in gear.
go to the front and watch the wheels going around look for anything out of kilter.
if it is clicking sound and normally heard in turns then it is likely a bad cv joint.
if it is not i would pay particular attention to the tires looking for a bump on the treadwall of the tire or plys separating metal wires sticking out or a large screw head sticking out/embedded in the treadwall. also check that the sway bar is attached and that the pins where it attaches to the control arm are in good condition.
then check your tie rod ends for play or looseness

Ive got a knocking noise comin from the rear passenger side of my car


It is likely that you have worn rubber bushing in one or more of the suspension control arms, check them all. Also check for loose suspension bolts on all control arms. Have you checked the free play of the wheel?

Hi, ive replaced the rear links, shocks, sway arm bushings and wheal bearing onpass side rear. the noise is coming from pass side rear with knocking at all points wheater it be slow,fast or even over...


Any bushing that is worn out could be a possibility. The other thing you have to check if the bushing moved so it's not centered anymore. I always making sure all nuts and bolts are tight. Also look for rusty areas when metal to metal rubs it take paint and or undercoating off then rust. Sometimes you can find problems with car is at normal riding height so try car ramps. Don't leave exhaust out, shake it bang on it with hand or rubber mallet. I have run into lugnuts bottoming out before they tighten wheel. I hope I given you any ideas.

Usally it could be the strut mounts or the struts themselves, but also check the stabilizer bushings.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

Knocking at both front and rear


DOES IT DO IT ON TAKE OFF OR STOPPING OR ALL THE TIME? IF UPON TAKE OFF, YOU MAY HAVE A BAD TRANSMISSION MOUNT CAUSING IT TO RISE UP A AUSE A KNOCK, OR POSSIBLY A BAD ENGINE MOUNT.
