    front end knocking

    any ideas?
    ive got a knocking noise coming from the front of the car when i drive over bumpy roads.
    just wondering if any body has had the same thing happen.
    i think its the suspension or engine bushes wearing.
    ive got a astra coupe turbo 52 plate.

    90% it will be the anti roll bar drop links. Cheap and easyish part to change

    would that explain why the handling has gone a bit shit recently, the knocking has got worse over the past two weeks.
    it seems to wander a bit at high speed slightly and i have no confidence when putting it into a corner at speed.

    Probably , but i'm not an expert or 100% sure , if you have some time and tools , you need to remove one of the front and check it , you should be able to tell , but as far as you describe , if i'm not mistaking , that is your issue

    Hi M8,
    Just a suggestion...
    I had my MOt over the weekend and both front suspension wishbone ball joints needed replacing
    But then i did notice a knocking sound going over bumpy ground but only when turning left.

    All okay and quiet now

    HTH
