Knocking sound
« on: March 26, 2014, 04:05:14 PM »
Hi all I have change my drop links today and I still have the same knocking noise as did before I change them. Anybody have any ideas. When I physically rocked the car you can hear a gentle knocking noise. Any help is appreciated

Can you describe the knocking?

Anti roll bar bushes can sound similar to drop link bushes.

Hi I've just checked all that I can and nothing seams to be worn. Then when I moved the passenger side front wheel I have a knocking noise the track rod ends move when I moved them up and down and I think the knocking is coming from there. Should there be any play in the track rod ends to the ball joint well when I say play they move up and down with my hand. Both sides move the same.

No, there shouldnt be any free movement at all in the track rods!! The ball joints will allow it to pivot forward and back a little but no up down or in out!

There should be no up and down movement, any slight movement you can feel by hand will be greater when the vehicle is travelling along the road.

So sorry I have worded this wrong. When I said moved up and down. I meant to say I can twist them on the ball joint but there is no movement up and down or forwards and backwards. Sorry for the confusion. When I put a hand either side of the wheel and move the wheel there is a Gentle knock sounding like when your tapping a screw driver on metal
