hey all,

have noticed a knocking sound in my 2005 exec, it happens when i go over speed bumps, up my driveway or any hill at about 10 km/h, or going around a left hand corner which is taking the weight of the car off the left hand side..i have narrowed it down to the front left of the car but not sure wat it is...

i originally thought it was a loose brake caliper or something but i had all wheels and calipers off the weekend just gone because i replaced all brake pads, also when the sound occurs and your foot is on the "rest" pedal in the drivers seat or in the passanger seat your feet are on the fire wall u can feel it, im almost certain its not transmission my next guess is suspension or something?

any help is much appreciated as i would like to rectify this problem because its annoying as hearing this knocking sound in my new car is driving me crazy :bang:

remove the sway bar link on the left hand side, go for a drive and see if the noise is still there

Suspension for sure. My sister's car 1996 celica displayed the same sound when driving. Found out the suspension was rooted. Get it fixed or checked out asap.
