    Hi all,

    I have a knocking noise that sounds like it is coming from the front right side. The suspension modifications on the front are:
    Ap coilovers
    Powerflex wishbone bushes front & back
    Whiteline 22mm ARB with poly bushes
    Custom Made droplinks (race rose joints and turnbuckles)
    Lemforder steering arms
    Top mounts & bearings
    I have no idea what is making the noise? This evening I jacked the car up and wobbled the wheels but there was no play that I could feel. Has anyone had this issue before?

    I too have a knock from the front, left in my case, only when on left hand down in forward (at low speed, can't put that much lock on at speed!)

    I suspect the cv joint in my case (165K) :-(

    What's your mileage? do you get it on both locks/straight line, forward and/or reverse? Speed/slow?

    Mine old girl has done 157k. It does when I turn going up on my drive left or right, & going over bumpy roads and speed bumps. This is at any speed. I always thought that if a CV joint goes it's more of a clicking noise but i could be wrong?
