Knocking noise after ARB blocks

Recommended Posts

MonsterL35YFP

Hello polo people, I have recently installed ARB blocks on my mk2f and not long after its developed a loud knocking noise from the nearside front when driving, not just over bumps or turning seems to be pretty random really. The only thing I can think of is the outer track control bush is worn out. Any help would be appreciated.

The blocks will put abit of stress on the outer bush, id reccomend getting new tca’s or poly’s bushes, top mounts are known to make a knock when fooked.

You want poly bushes in the arms when using blocks, as the std rubber blocks can't handle the extra stress - especially as most TCA rubbers are now either very old or cheap aftermarket versions given that VW have long discontinued them.

      As title, my car has developed a knocking noise when I turn the steering wheel. It seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel. I have had a look and noticed that the drivshaft is leaking a little, could this be the cause of the noise? If not what could it be?
