    Exactly the same problem on my 2001 xc70. Had the ball joints done, problem continued and worsened. It's not just when turning now but all the time under about 20mph. It sounds like 2 large cogs turning but not properly engaged with each other or the front nearside wheel arch hitting the wheel but even I can see it's not that ! Please help !!

2008 range rover sport v8td has a rubbing or knocking from rear end on slow pull away.


If it were the prop, you have vibration at high speeds/out of balance. Look at the back of both wheels. If one has oil around where the rearend meets the backing plate, bad axle bearings.

Knock from front end when turning at slow speed


Your CV joint(s) are about to shear off. They are relatively easy to replace while still intact.

Front end thumping that gets faster with speed


check for bulges in the side walls of the tyres and check for belt separation. Disconnect the front axles into free wheel mode and if the noise is not there it will be tyre related as there is no movement in the diff or drive axles

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS
