    hi as above ive checked the linkages and the only ont that looks sus is the little u shaped one at the back of the front wheel , would this cause any knocking , it also knocks when turning the steering wheel off on my drive.

    Could be allsorts of things..

    Bit of a stab in the dark but my exhaust mid-section worked loose today and the resultant drop of the front end of the pipe caused it to collide with the suspension arms at the front of the car, causing a loud knocking sound whenever I turned left.

    Is your exhaust fitted completely snug and where it should be?

    Just a thought...

    Could be the front ARB bushes or the top suspension arms. If you're changing the ARB bushes, then definitely change the drop-link component (the one you described)
