Hi there, the knocking may be the cv joints coming apart. they are like a driveshaft u joint setup and when the ball bearing start wearing out they tend to start falling out, and you cant see them because they are covered by a rubber boot

I have a knocking sound coming from the passenger side of my 2008 Suzuki SX4 and the engine light is on.What could be making the noise?

why not pull the DTC codes
but knocking is never good.
dont drive it.
find it first.
its a hands on thing, no net geek can fix cars, untouched, not now or ever.
and noise is 10x that.
watch the mechanic fix that, and see am not use the net to find it.
not now, not ever

i would suspect that you have damaged a drive coupling ,now this could still drive for the next ten years like this with a slight knocking noise ,my own escort has done it ever since i have had the car and its not dangerous and will not fall apart but for your own safety ask a local mechanic to have a drive for you and see what he says as it could be something more serious .But if its just the universal coupling then ignore it as it will not hurt but noise does scare some people but if it is this then it will not hurt honest

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.

I would check the sway bar linkages, they are usually the first to go, and they are only $40. Its an easy 'do it yourself' project, remove the old one with torches or a grinder (with a small cutting wheel). You can also use a vise grip and sockets but it takes longer.

You can't tell these are damaged until you remove the part. I change mine every 100 000km or so.
