I have a knock in the front passenger side of the wagon. It appears under heavy breaking and also when i'm breaking while in reverse. Ive been chasing it for a while now.
Ive replaced the swaybar rubbers, checked the tightness of all bolts, replaced the upper and lower balljoints, tightened the steering rack and checked the brakes. What else could be causing it ??
I was told by a few people that the strut might be the problem... would getting new inserts fix this ?
Ive had the brake pads out a couple of times and the knock still appears. If i remember correctly, the engine mounts have been checked. Ive had a couple of mechanics and a frontend specialist look at it and so far there suggestions have not solved it.
Dont worry, My EF falcon and NFII fairlane both have done that at some stage, although, when the falcon did it, it was the first time i ever heard it before and it scared the shit out of me.
fairlanes only ever done it once, when slamming on the brakes in reverse after almost running into a 15,000litre Lpg tank.
I think the K-Frame bolts become loose, after tightening them, it never happend again.... the Ef was a bucket of bolts and I didnt really investigate it, but i bet thats what it was also as it did it exactly the same way..
