    Default Knocking noises

    Not sure if anyone is awake right now, but try my luck, i think i kinda snapped something in my car, basically front left of my car is making knocking noises, as i speed up it becomes constant, i searched on the web and people that had similar problem was saying it "tie-rod ends and your stabilizer bar endlinks." Change sway bar bushes OR struts and strut tops...

    Im thinking of taking it to horse power factory to get checked out but i have a feeling they will charge overpriced..

    anyone know of this problem as well a merchanic that might be able to fix it ?

    Are you parked outside a brothel?

    Forgive me - I couldn't resist that!

    How many kms on the car? I don't follow your "as I speed up it becomes constant" as this suggest it is in fact variable.

    Is it affected by variable road surface. Suspension noises will be worse over more variable surfaces and may subside on smooth surfaces.

    Is it a knock or a click? CV joints should not be discounted, esp if you or a previous owner has launched hard.

    The previous suggestion is also valid - check wheel nuts.

    Good luck!

    The mind boggles. Buggers like that can kill you! Glad they weren't working on my plane when I had it! You can't pull over and stop at 10,000'.
