Customer Question

Hi I have an 2004 rx330 and recently had the rack replaced. When we got the car back we noticed that when going over b8mps, there is a hard knock coming from the right side front. Can you tell me what that could be?

it could be the steering gear not fastened properly, a loos sway bar link or failing control arm.. I would have the double check the front steering linkage and suspension.. Sounds like a workmanship issue
