Help Please !!!!!

My Alfa 156 1.8 TS W Reg 57000 miles has a knocking noise. Seems worse when steering slightly to the right, and seems to be coming from drivers side under car. I know it is a very vague description, but I have had it to 2 mechanics (Not Alfa) and they have had it up on ramps and can find nothing wrong but knocking getting quite alarming.
Any Alfa drivers in Northampton area that can help ?

Sound like drive shaft, but could be bushes on A Arms or anti roll bar. Take it to a specialist though, they'll find it.

Re: Help Please !!!!!

knocking from the suspension areas? check the upper and lower wishbones, drop links and the anti roll bar. knocking if often caused by one or more of the wishbone bushes failing, if you get her up on ramps and get a good hold of the parts, give then a pull about, there shouldnt be very much play in them. when i had a lower wishbone fail i could actually see it was not dead center at the bushes, one side was like leaning down.

the suspension arms / wishbones on the alfas are not fabulous!
