What is this?

elxr82, when braking and turning left around a corner i get a creaking, knocking sound coming from the front left suspension strut or brake disc area. Is worse when braking. Could it be ball joint or is it caliper problem? Shits me off. Car has done 44000km.

what is this

If your car has that many klms on it i would say its time for new balljoints particularly the bottom joints.

What with only 44,000k's? Thought ball joints would have lasted longer than that:crazy1:

could be pads moving in the caliper, rack or ball joints... My guess would be pads...
