    Default Knocking sound when braking

    My knowledge of the car is pretty poor !!

    Not sure what the problem is, but have noticed over the last week or two that when you brake (not suddenly), there is a knocking sound that appears to be coming from somewhere like the suspension (but I could be completely wrong).

    Anyone have a clue what this could be?
