Since I have had the car, there has been a knocking coming fron front drivers side, garage replaced drop link, but its still doing it.

I have checked anti roll bar bushes, they look fine, checked wishbone bushes they look fine, i used a bar to put pressure on them, and they dont move.

If i have my foot on clutch going over spped bump, i can feel what ever it is knocking, it feels like its knocking against clutch pedal.

Have something to contribute?

Do you get the knocking noise on small bumps or slightly uneven road surfaces? Not just bigger bumps like speed bumps.

If so it could be the suspension top mounts.
