Hi Allan,

With all the work you already done, has the steering rack, the rack ends, and the tierod ends been inspected for abnormality?

Has the front crossmember been checked for cracks?

Hi Allan,

Anything non-factory - springs, struts, wheels etc?

Has the car ever had an accident that you know of?

Gary

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Front sturts replaced last week with Pedders parts. Noise was there before struts where renewed. Vehicle is straight & has been well maintained.

Hi Allan,

Could this be an engine mount type knock?

It sounds like you have exhausted every avenue on the front end.

I'll be back with you tomorrow.
