    Default Nearside knocking

    noticed a knocking today when going over bumps. noise seems to be coming from nearside shock, spring, suspension. steering is fine. would anyone have any possible clues as to cause. Help appreciated. cheers

    Yep as glynn has said. I would look at them. Grap the "rod" and pull it to and fro from where it is bolted it should not move.
