View Full Version : Knocking sound from front end

Brothers GAGT has been doing this for a while and has been getting slowly worse. Goes away when the car is warmed up/has been driven for a while. NOT ENGINE RELATED.

There is a speed dependant knock from the front end of the car. The faster you go, the faster the knock gets.

Doesn't change if you turn the wheel...just as long as the car is moving forward, on any type of road, the sound is there.

I'm going to take it in to the shop tomorrow, but wanted your opinions first. I'm thinking it may be a CV joint. You can also feel it in your feet.

How old are the struts?

I'd say either your CV or the struts are wore to hell, like mine... and pop.

Probably transmission or axle related. Could be CV joint, but I wouldn't think that would go away at all, whether the car was warmed up or not.

crappy tire or real bad flat spot maybe?
