CV joint, the strut does not make a knocking sound unless its totally
shoot and the car is bouncing to its high and low limit.

If you push down on the car and it bounces a little then the strut is shoot.

The cv joint will knock if it is bad when you turn the wheel, when it gets real bad,it will knock when driving in a straight line.

Have 2008 Caren's 2.0 CRDI 72,000 miles Have developed knocking from f/o/s suspension. Have replaced ball joint on suspension arm but knocking continues with every little bump in roads.


Sounds like a strut issue. If knocks when hitting a bump. You can remove the strut. If you can close it by hand relativly easy. Strut is out

Knocking sound from front passenger that worsens when turning and accelerating


CV joint - wheel side needs to be replaced :) right wheel, a lot of people drive like that for a while before they fix it so don't worry, also it shouldn't be soooo expensive

Nocking sound on the front the right side


check the lower ball joints for wear and looseness. If that is the case then you will need a replacement ball joint -- tools--jack and jack stands-- and mechanical knowledge or a work shop manual

Steering wheel and front end shakes with knocking noise


easiest check struts for leakage or if the top nut came loose.
next Ball joints support bottom of lower control arm and try to move tire in and out on the bottom.
next check bearing plate for movement by trying to move top of tire.
last check tie rod ends by moving as in right turn left turn.
do both sides. if one side is bad replace both sides so you don't have to tie up vehicle in a couple months.
