159 2.4 JTD - knocking noise

Hello All,

Not posted since I got rid of the 147 a couple years ago, back in the alfa fold with a 2.4 JTD qtronic, it's great!

However, since buying it I have noticed a knocking noise coming from the suspension (I think!) when turning the car at low speed or going over bumps, again at low speed only. At speed there does not appear to be a knocking noise.

Havinf searched its probably bushes or something of the like, however money is very tight at the moment so I wanted to know if the fix is something I could put off for a few months? Is there a risk anything drastic could happen i.e. suspension completely failing? I don't want to risk safety but again money is a bit of an issue what with a new house move as well.

Any advice much appreciated!

Can probably wait a few months, may get worse, but not terminal in that time.
