I've also have the knock in the front end if I boot it from a standstill. I very rarely do it though so I haven't worried about it, would be keen to find out what's causing it though.

For your handling however, you've probably already taken care of this as it's pretty obvious, but when was the last time you had a wheel alignment?

Too many to list......
Did you do front and rear radius bushes or just front most people forget the rears.

Also, i suggest new struts and tie rod ends and check for scalloped tyres from previous **** alignment.

How low is it and how big are the wheels? If it's excessively lowered you may be getting bump steer and/or tram tracking from mismatched wheels
