The sway bar bushings commonly wear out, causing a knocking noise from the front of the vehicle. Replacing the worn bushings should correct this concern.

    Went over 2 larger speed bumps in a parking lot and immediately the car started knocking. the handling of the car is not compromised and being that its so old, i don't see the point of fixing it. Might get a second opinion other than my own.

    Part worn out - rubber cracked. Rattled and noise when driving. Replaced - all is well :)

    Have had this same problem but have not changed sway bar bushings yet to see if that resolves it.
