Anybody out there got any ideas or experience of a single knock that comes from the suspension area of the v6 or probably the 2.0l as well.Jacked the car up thinking it was the bottom ball joint or the anti-roll bar but no obvious signs.The bottom ball joint usually knocks all the time this is only occasionally usually on corners or under braking not from a hole in the road either?
Any help appreciated! frown

most probably the inner antiroll bar bushes they dont really wear out they just get tight and they do make a real dinn especialy if your just going over a small slow speed hump like a sleeping copper.

Think I have discovered this noise or perhaps its :( just related,the bottom arm bushes the inner ones are worn and is allowing the wheel to move back and forward by quite a bit,probably causing the noise as well.
Can anybody shed light on the availability of these bushes or do you have to buy the whole arm?

I had the same knock on my 2.0 earlier this year...

Would get a bang from the left front suspension whenever going over pot-holes or cornering fast...

It was the lower wishbone bushes that had worn but i had the whole arm replaced from Alfa.. think the part was about £80 or so...
