Q: Knocking sound coming from front of car.

asked by on

I hear a knocking sound coming from under the front end.

Knocking in the front end of your vehicle could be coming from a faulty suspension component. There are many moving parts that can wear over time. It would be best to enlist the help of a trusted mechanic to check your suspension components for any wear and replace the component that is causing the clunking sound.
