    All,

    I've tried searching, but couldn't find anything relevant really.

    This morning, the front end of the car was making a knocking noise upon braking at low speeds. It doesn't seem to have affected the braking at all, but seems a bit of an odd noise? It's almost as though the car was making the noise as the front end was dipping under braking.

    Any ideas, so I know if it's something I need checked out soonish?

    Thanks,

    Update

    I was driving the car back from work this evening and it appears the noise is there even when I'm not braking - sounds suspension related, so will get these checked out - expensive job?
