A knocking noise in the front wheels can be a very serious problem. The knocking noise could be caused by bad ball joints. Bad ball joints can slip off the tie rods and cause the wheel assembly to collapse. This problem should be looked at as soon as possible.

Worn front axle and/or front end component.

loose CV joint. The CV joint(s) need to be replaced, the transmission is probably fine.

The knocking noise could be one of several things. The wheel bearing, a worn steering or suspension part, or road debris could be causing the noise.

Assuming this is an older car a knocking noise on turning could mean one of the drive shafts is worn. Other things to check - are the bolts tight on the front wheels, if a very high mileage it could be worn wheel bearings.

Where is the noise coming from? If its from the fenders or wheels is a much different problem than if its coming from the transaxle.

you may have a rod knocking and you need to take it to a shop asap

Probably the end links..... Just had mine fixed and it made the world of difference. The original end links were not strong enough.

the steering wheel wont make the front wheels make noise as there is no generating source from the steering wheel. it will be the other way around.

It's the spirit of the car knocking on the side saying "HELLO??? TAKE ME TO A MECHANIC!"

Sorry, you need to be more specific. Noise from the back, front ? Wheels, engine?

A bad harmonic balancer can cause a knocking noise. The harmonic balancer doesn't actually produce the noise, but it can cause the noise in the engine.

it makes a knocking sound when u turn the wheels.

Definitely the sway bar links. Ford uses plastic for the joints.

most likely the anti roll bar bushes. It was on mine

On a front wheel drive car probably a damaged constant velocity joint clattering

The noise/squeeling is due to understeer caused by the back wheels pushing too hard oer the front wheels, this can also be attributed to suspention set-up and wing set-up

When your engine has a knocking noise, it could mean that a rod has been thrown. It could also mean you are low on oil.
