I have just got hold of a 2002 80k focus 1.8 tddi which goes well and is very tidy but has two slight annoyances first listed here. When going over bumpy roads (thats most of devon then!) i get a "knock" which seems to come from drivers side wheel area. I get the same noise when I first brake in the mornings then after that braking doesnt make a difference. Would this be track rod or drop link worn?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Have something to contribute?

Sounds like a worn track rod to me.
