    hey all

    tryin to work out what would cause a knocking noise over any sort of bumps.. recently got my car dumped and wondering if swaybar links could cause a knocking noise? if not would it be strut top mounts or shocker nut?

    which sound about right?

    thanks

    I had exactly the same problem about amonth ago after i lowered my car a week or so later i had a knock on my lh strut.All i had to do to fix it was slide up the rubber boot on the strut and tighten the nut up that keeps the shocker tight.
