Slight knocking / creaking from front suspension / steering
I wonder if anyone can help?
I've recently become aware of a slight knock from the front O/S suspension when travelling over a rutted or potholed surface, whilst everything feels fine. Also, I don't know if the two are connected but when turning the steering wheel from lock to lock I get a similar sound, particularly when turning from the centre position to the right. It sounds as though something could do with some grease, like a rubber bush is dry, it's tricky to describe and of course with the engine running, my wife turning the wheel and my head under the bonnet I can't hear anything.
I've done a search and found a few references to knocking front suspension at slower speeds but very little about the actual cause.
Is anyone aware of any weak points that could cause such a noise? or fixed such an issue? As a private owner with no warranty it would be great to get some ideas before taking it to an independent.
