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.
well the knock in the steering wheel is a common problem for your modle your steering nuckle needs to be removed lubed and replaced this will resolve this issue....as for the other noise i would have to hear it noises are tuff have your ball joints checked and lubed if posible ......good luck
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.
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.
