Knocking Sound Coming from Front End

Lately I have noticed a knocking sound coming from the front end of my GC, I jacked her up other day and had a look but didn't see anything that could be making the sound. Anybody else experiencing something similar?

Re: Knocking Sound Coming from Front End

Any conditions as soon as I start to drive. It's constant knocking more so when going over bumps and turning.

Re: Knocking Sound Coming from Front End

Is it loud knocking sound or more like "garrr...." like constant kncking? I have "garrrr..." like noise between 1500 and 2000 rpm.

Re: Knocking Sound Coming from Front End

There has been several reports of loose bolts on one or the other bracket.

Re: Knocking Sound Coming from Front End

Take it in. I just had mine checked and they found a loose bolt in the suspension. It got progressively worse over the two days I drove it. It started out only on bumps but turned into a knocking thud no matter what.
