hey

last couple of days ive noticed like a knocking sound coming from the front drivers side area, you can feel it through the pedals but seems to mostly go away when you brake or turn the wheel a certain amount each way but as soon as you get back on a straight bang bang bang its back. Now what could it be?? theres nothing stuck in the tyre i cant see anything else wrong

any ideas>

Firstly check the wheel bearings, then the obvious worn bushes and ball joints, lastly the rack end.

all the things joolz said, and, i know its obvious, but make sure all your wheel nuts are done up properly. i had a mate that was complaining of something banging around, turned out to be a wheel that was loose...
