    Default Knocking Sound Found?!?

    As a few people on here have posted, i have a knocking/rubbing noise from passenger side rear. Me and a bud took the wheel off the weekend to have a look and give things a pull.

    The weird thing is that i don't get the noise all the time but as soon as i hit a decent pot hole/speed bump that starts it and then any little bump will cause the noise, once the car has been left standing for a while the noise wont be there until i hit something etc.

    The only thing me and my mate found that made a slight noise was the part in the pictures. An arm that leads just past the arch to a rubber fitting. Spots of oil can just about be seen in the second picture so maybe a seal has gone, but we don't know what the part is called. Any help on this please guys. Cheers.

    Hope the car's on axle stands and not the wheel change jack!

    I have a knocking from the back which apparently isn't bushes, so if anyone's got any ideas I'm all ears too...
