    as the title says, im getting like a knock through the steering when i go over little bumps grids etc, nothing big, but i feel it through the steering, i have no steering wheel shake or nothing like that, the steering feels solid, im due to change some parts in the next week or so because they are about shot:

    new cv boots
    front anti roll bar bushes
    front wish bone rear bushes

    these need doing regardless^^

    whilst im at it i am going to change the:

    front drop links

    im hoping this will fix the issue, does anyone have any suggestions what else this could be, also anything else i should change whilst im at it, i might aswell get it all done at once, save on some labour costs.
    thanks

    Going over bumps would make the worn mounts knock yes, but given age of car its certainly something to look at as my 8P had new mounts after 4 years mate so can imagine yours by now may need swapping out & if you're doing rest then definitely suggest them, I had a knocking on my new suspension & changed them out & it went so take from that what you will, but a visual inspection is the only way mate, upto you.
