Front end knock

hi all - i have developed a new front end knock

i had new upper/lower wishbones fitted, new drop-links and new ARB a while back and all was nice quite, smooth and very relaxing after months of ARB knocking. unfortunately within 3-4 days a new knocking developed and has proceeded to get worse. any ideas what else could cause it? coming from driver area (sounds different to the ARB knocking). i replaced the top engine mount as that was split, but still the same.

Were the replacement parts OEM or pattern ones?

If you got cheap parts and not the more expensive Alfa ones then I would bet the lower wishbones have gone already as this happened to me. Never buy cheap *** ones as the bushes are made of jam and its just false economy
