    Default Knocking from front

    i got a really annoying knocking from the front passengers side when going over wee ruts on the road.

    car is a 2008 sri with 35000 miles.

    would it more likely to be the drop links.....or could the ball joints be goosed?

    the saab uprated ones are the best to go for, and as far as im aware are around £40 delivered, i fitted them to mine and the rod part is definetly thicker, not sure what difference there is in the balljoint parts tho.
