    Default suspension knocking again

    my suspension seems to be knocking again i have changed my n/s fromt spring and i refitted the rubbers top and btm of the spring and a local garage changed my o/s front spring and didnt fit the rubbers back to the spring that side could that be the knock?? if so anyone know the part number and ill change myself ?
    ive also changed the front drop links twice so could even be those and other ideas its not doing it all the time it can be great for 15-20 mins then might knock twice and be ok again for a while just annoying not knowing what it is??

    How old are the drop links where they cheap ones?

    Drop links would be my favourite unless one of springs isn't say correctly?

    Whats mileage on the car?

    Things to check.
    Springs
    drop links
    arb an bushes
    top mounts

    Soon as I read the title, first thought. Front Anti Roll Bar bushes. Treat your car to Some Powerflex ones.

    In my experience cheap drop links don't stand upto the job mine only lasted a few months.
    Arb bushes are fairly easy to change.
    Not sure about powerflex ones as I just used new ones from dealer only 3 quid each
