Alfa 147 jtd knock from front passenger side wheel

I have had this problem for a while now. A rattling/knocking sound from the front passsenger side suspension. It was getting worse even though I had replaced upper and lower balljoints on both sides as well as ARB droplinks. Noticed in the end the droplinks had split rubbers so replaced again. It worked - silence. For two weeks.
Today its back and I'm well ****ed. Yes, they were cheapo parts but is there something else I should be looking for? Visually it all seems ok. Perhaps if I wore ear plugs.....

I've got the same problem in the same place. Did you get this problem sorted? If you did what was it?

I had same problem, turned out to be anti roll bar bushes! if you jack the whole front of your car up and disconnect both drop links, you should beable to rattle the anti roll bar side to side. Hearing a banging sound. (Mine was quite bad)

Had this for a while ! I thought it was the CV joint, but my mechanic said that the last drop link was cheap and nasty !! He changed it, and the noise has gone:cool
