    Yes, very possible top mounts are worn.

    Worn ARB link bars can also cause knocking!

    arb link bars changed with the control arms :) i changed all at once , what is still worn the front engine stop mount , but i already bought it and i will change , but the sound is not coming from it i think cos i hear it from the right side.

    about the strut mount is they comon to wear? what wear on them? maybe they were tired since long and i didnt know that? , how can i inspect it?

    Hi kninio, where did you get your kit from?

    I puchaced a kit from ebay about 6months ago, fitted it up then about 2months after fittinf a knock could be heard from the front driverside.
    it turned out that the washer had boken and fallen out, this was the new bolt and washer i got with the kit! i torqued all bolts to specified torque settings, must just have been a **** washer.
    i put the original bolt back in and its been fine since, have a look, could be the same thing
