CV joint, the strut does not make a knocking sound unless its totally
shoot and the car is bouncing to its high and low limit.

If you push down on the car and it bounces a little then the strut is shoot.

The cv joint will knock if it is bad when you turn the wheel, when it gets real bad,it will knock when driving in a straight line.

Steering wheel and front end shakes with knocking noise


easiest check struts for leakage or if the top nut came loose.
next Ball joints support bottom of lower control arm and try to move tire in and out on the bottom.
next check bearing plate for movement by trying to move top of tire.
last check tie rod ends by moving as in right turn left turn.
do both sides. if one side is bad replace both sides so you don't have to tie up vehicle in a couple months.

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.

Car knocks and creeks when turning. I believe the tie rods are broken


Typically, this issue is contant velocity joints.

If a tie rod were broken, you would not be able to turn one or more wheels....

2000 DODGE NEON DRIVER SIDE WHEEL THUMPS ?


Coould be your ball joint. One way to check to see if it is the bearings is to jack the car and grab hold of the tire and give it a twisting motion, one hand on the top of the tire and one hand at the bottom...push/pull type method. You should have almost no play in it whatsoever. Inspect your ball joints. Look for torn boots....means no grease.

If you replaced only one strut, it would be advisable to take the car in for a front end alignment.

Let us know what you find.

Popping noise on s80 volvo 2.9 1999


Sounds like a ball joint or bad strut. Depends on how the noise occurs and from where it comes from. Does it appear to come from one wheel or another? Could also be power steering linkage.
