In Topic: Annoying Knocking Noise From Front Right Wheel Of My Focus.

You have been very helpful, I am going to ring a local mechanic, let them drive it to hear the noise and see what they make of it as well. I'll keep you posted on this thread, tell you what the problem was!! B)

I think it would be best as you say; more than likely i'll have to do the other side aswell as a precaution, when you say arm (this may sound stupid) but is that the whole driveshaft up to the wheel?

but you will find almost all garages will fit a new (pattern part) complete lower arm which comes with bushes and ball joint already fitted.
expect to pay? £100 a side fitted? you will also need your wheel alignment checked after the work


Well it is only the driver side, so I doubt I'll need to get both sides done, unless you would advice that? The tracking is also slightly out at them moment, that was suspect to me also.

Yes that's a possibility, but would you find that temperamental? CV joints are usually a consistent issue but this problem doesn't affect the steering (when i turn the wheel or leave it straight), but i can feel it through the brake pedal only and it's loud only and after a spell of motorway driving.

Thanks you've been very helpful, if it is the bushes or the joints, are they expensive to replace (product and labour)?
