Default Suspension knock - 08-01-2018, 11:51 AM

Hey Guys,

I need some guidance understanding the front suspension of a 2007 e90. On normal roads with pot holes etc there is no problem. However once I make a sharp right into the driveway you hear a knock once the wheel dips for the drain.

I don't understand why this would not happen with regular holes not turning.

All the same I check the suspension and all seems fine however since this is only happening on a turn where should I be looking specifically.

Thanks in advance.

It's hard for someone on the internet to diagnose with that little info.

What checks did you do?

Jack up the car, get under, and look for worn/cracked rubber bushings, torn ball joint boots, and check the tie-rod play, etc. take pics, let us know what you see.

Or take it somewhere for free diagnosis, and let us know what they say.

Fully understand. Honestly I was hoping that no knock under normal driving conditions vs knock on a hard turn would have helped.

Will do the check.
