    am i right in thinking....

    thats its my drop links?
    car has developed a knocking sound,
    lowered it about a month ago, yesterday it started knockin like hell from the front.
    example: i went over one of those wide (3 metre) speed bumps, when the front went up the bump> no sound but when the front drops over the other side KNOCK!
    or say when you go over i slight hole in the road, knock!!
    or.... if i rock the steering wheel quite hard when driving knock again!!

    any advice would be great

    1 last thing..

    is it common for the drop liks to go after lowering it?

    cheers all
