Alfa 147 knocking sound

Hello! I am writing from Sweden. I have an Alfa 147 facelift model. I had knocking sound since I bought it in 2011. The sound irritates me especially when I drive on uneven roads, and I am so tired of hearing the comments of new passengers that get into my car.

There is an Alfa service in my small town, I almost visited them 10 times for this problem. They changed my front upper and lower wishbones 2 times in the last 18 months. But the sound keeps knocking. Today we had an off road driving with the guy that works there, he listened and tried to find the source of the sound, he said it comes both from back and front. Since my knowledge is limited on cars, I couldnt comment so much. I paid almost 8000 SEK which corresponds to 750 for the wishbones and work but nothing changed, and they cant name the problem either.

Any comments or someone experienced this problem?
Thanks in advance

easiest way to tell between ARB and wishbones is to disconnect the drop links and tie them up and go for a drive. If the noise goes it will be either drop links or ARB bushes. Drop links are easier to replace so is the first one to go for

I forgot to write, in January I changed both the right and left droplinks by myself. This so called Alfa service changed my wishbones in May, didnt make any sense...
