    knocking over bumps

    like the title says i've got a knock when i go over any bumps i think it's coming from the passenger side but not 100%
    I've changed the c links on both sides and both the track rod ends as they didn't look great and also replaced the drivers side lower rear arm as it was knackered where the arm goes onto the sub frame

    can't see anything obvious any idea's

    Check all your front control arms, the top mounts, gearbox mounts and mounting brackets, calipers/pads are not loose...............
    IT COULD ALWAYS BE WORSE SO KEEP ON SMILING

    Its false economy IMO replacing odd bits of the front suspension, its all been fitted for the same length of time, and has done the same amount of work, so it will all be at deaths door. Its a bit like changing the brake pads on one side because they're down to the metal, but not bothering with the other side because they're not grinding yet...

    Buy a complete kit (by a good manufacturer such as meyle) and fit it all.
