another alfa owner...

Hi all, Names Steve, We have just bought a 51 reg 156 2.0 TS sportwagon. We had a 147 about 3 years ago, we have kids and a dog to ship around now so went for the sportwagon, she is red and seems to have been well looked after.
Had the car since tuesday, once we got her home and drove round for a while it has started to knock on the front passenger side at slow speed over bumps. I have been reading several threads on here, I am hoping it isnt to expensive, I am wondering if it could be bushes or drop links etc, or could a broken exhaust bracket cause this sort of noise ? Knowing our luck it will be something most expensive, I guess its time to reintroduce myself to Nick at Optima in wootton bassett, wonder if he charges more now its royal wootton basset ! ! !
Any ideas are always welcome, I know enough to do oil and filter changes and change the brake pads etc, but not much more, but always willing to learn..
