    Default Help With N/S/F- Centre Knocking Please

    I seem to be getting all my problems in the first month

    I've develeped a knocking, all of a sudden really, coming either from the n/s wheel or more central, i can't tell.
    On the open road at cruise, no problem, but on bumpy village roads she's really knocking. Sounds like some suspension bush, or somethings loose

    Is there a common area here i should be looking at?

    Cheers.

    Thanks chaps, but i've ran my hand around the springs and can't feel/see any breaks. I've just been out in it again and it really does knock, but again no problem when cruising.
