The above auto has been driven only 55,000 miles. The sound is exactly as describe on your website. Can hear the knocking noise when driving over bumpy surfaces. A dealer recommended replacing both sides strut bearings and struts. Makes no sense if other side is okay.

    I had a similar problem. It was a loose bolt in the left front strut tower. Dealer retorqued the bolt and the problem was fixed.
