It would be common for worn struts to cause this noise. Replace your struts. This will also improve handling and take away the noise.

I have a 1994 Saturn SL2. There is a knocking noise coming from the front passenger side of the car possibly near the the tire. It's not the motor because you hear it more on a bumpy road. After about 2...


If it is a constant knock, I would check the cv shaft,(drive shaft ) on that side. you can grab it and there should be no movement up or down or side to side. If it is the shaft and that much noise it will move quite a bit. Get this replaced as soon as possible. this is not safe to drive and could cost you a transmission if it breaks completely. If you need to drive it to a garage take back roads and drive slowly. best is to get it towed. If you 've got the tools and want to do it yourself let me know and I can guide you thru it. Struts will make noises but only on bumps, the same with ball joints.

I have 2004 Sentra. There is a loud knocking in the front end when driving over bumps. Struts were replaced last year, so I am wondering if the noise might be a strut, en engine mount, or sway bar mount....


start by looking at all the bushings on the front end, leave the car in gear and rock it to check engine movement, use a prybar to check for movement in the bushings, you'll find it

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.

96 Golf 2.0GTI 8v knocking noise from rear when accelerating


its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.
