    Suspension knocking

    My front end is making a knocking sound.
    When i travel at around 5-10mph over bumpy/rough/potholed ground you can here it knocking from the front and feel it through the pedals, as if its a swaying knock (if you know what i mean??) Only does it at low speed over rough ground, or at low speed when turning sharply like in a multi-story car park.
    Checked the exhaust and its not that and can't see anything obvious.
    Any help very much appreciated.

    most common problem is the drop links (anti roll bar link rods) so check these but easy enough just to replace em

    stay clear of cheap ebay specials though - either GM ones (if u can access trade club) or reputable brands such as FAI, QH or Delphi

    Heres some Delphi ones via ebay although I got some QH ones cheaper at a local motor factor
