    Default Knocking noise from Front Wheel

    I have a question.....

    I have noticed a very slight knock sound on the passenger front wheel. And also the steering pulls a little to that side. To the left while driving.

    It does not do it all the time and not just over bumps in the road.

    Does anyone know what this may be?

    Wheel Bearing? Track Rod End?



    I want to repair it myself to save money.

    Probably a drop link and best to replace anti roll bar bushes while you are at it.

    well i jacked my vectra up this afternoon and gave everything a good wiggle about and all felt nice and tight, went a drive there now and the passenger side front is knocking and getting a wee bit louder. i think its either the shock, bushes, ball joint ( but this looked pretty tight and good). I'll have to investigate further. anybody have similar problems

    Whats the mileage and the year?

    This could be a few things it's better to pin point it rather than whacking parts on which gets pricey.

    If its the drop links you will hear the noise when that side is raising and dropping eg over a speed bump is perfect testing ground. Unfortuantly they look fine but when they are going a little tug and they ball joint falls to pieces.
