    Default knocking when going over speedbumps?

    i got my car back from vx this morning after having a new egr fitted.

    on the drive home i had to go over some speedhumps and i noticed a knocking coming from the passenger side fornt of vehicle ?

    its not doing it over rough or uneven surface just speed bumps?

    any ideas what it could be?

    ive looked through the car history and noticed that the droplinks were replaced in october last year so im not convinced its those?

    help?

    cheers

    steve

    It just seems a bit strange that its happened suddenly and since it has been to the dealers?

    Hi. It might sound daft but is the passenger door closed properly, or check the so called "glove compartment" for loose objects.

    Doh - they've been done in Oct. ARB bushes then as suggest above?

    Can't think what they would have done to it simply by changing an EGR valve though...?
