156 Knocking noises

Hi Guys

Thought I would post the reason for an annoying knocking noise from the front of my 156 over rough roads and under braking which I posted recently.
I put the blame at suspension bushes but it turned out when I had the car serviced at a local garage they used the cheapest after market brake pads they could find,after further examination (and 2 more trips to a specialist)who changed a drive shaft! it was noted the pads were slightly smaller and did not seat properly.
After 2000 miles of loud metallic knocking the problem has gone.

I can`t imagine that it will be easy to get any compensation but you might get the money for the pads and their fitting back.
