Knocking from suspension on rough roads due to worn or loose sway bar links on Mazda 626

A knocking sound heard from the front or rear suspension while driving over rough roads may be caused by the sway bar linkages. The linkages should be inspected for tightness and condition; there are redesigned linkages if replacement is necessary.
