Q: Knocking noise from front tire

asked by on

There is a knocking noise from the left front of the vehicle while driving. The front struts and control arm were replaced recently.

It would be helpful to know why were the components you mentioned were replaced in the first place. There are a few more components in the front end that could cause this issue. Problems with the sway bar links are common on these vehicles. My best recommendation would be to have the vehicle raised and inspected to determine what is causing the knocking noise.
