knocks and back lashes and ofcourse appreciation.

Here are my first few questions:
1. I hear a faint (muffled) knock coming from what sounds like my driver side front well when driving on a rough surface. The noise persists when I apply the brakes. Any advice?

2. If I have been driving for a while, stop and then reverse. When I apply the brakes (while in reverse). I hear a loud knock. At first I though it was the brake pad shifting in their holder. Common sense says that this is not possible. Any advice?

3. If I accelerate in first gear and then suddenly remove my foot off the accelerator, I feel a back lash (as if the engine shifts). I feel it again if I accelerate. I thought it related to the engine mounts. Had these checked by Alfa...they say the mounts are in perfect condition.

thanks...looking forward to the responses.

Re: knocks and back lashes and ofcourse appreciation.

If its from the front then from your description I'd guess its a wishbone......
