I'm new here as a member, but I have been all over this site over the last month trying to kill a knock in my front end.
Initially the knock was mainly over ANY type of bump in the road.
I have replaced the following over the last month (and made a note of anything worn out)
All 4 Struts
Both Sway Bar Links (swapped to the metal ones, plastic was quite loose)
Both Ball Joints (driver side had a little play, pass was loose but not separating)
Both Inner Tie rod ends (both had play)
Both Outer Tie Rod ends (just because)
All 4 LCA
bushings (the front one on the pass side was pretty torn up with the middle metal piece completely loose from the rubber, but the others looked ok)
4-Wheel alignment (was understandably WAY out with everything replaced)
Every time I finish putting things together (I didn't replace everything all at once), it's fine for a day or two, and then I start to get a slight knock that gets much worse - back to what it was before. I've noticed that the knock happens every time coming out of a turn, sometimes going in, and on some small bumps but not large ones. The knock is on the pass side.
I'm at my wit's end. I'm going to take the wheels off again this afternoon and re-torque everything. Has anyone else had this problem come back this way? Is there something I should whack with a rubber hammer to try to pinpoint? Should I find a large hill and a good sized brick?
