Car Sounds

What would cause a loud knocking sound under the front left side of your car when making a right turn especially when coming out of a driveway?

most likely a broken shock absorber

or a shock absorber leveling spring

it is most likely the CV joints and there is no such thing as a shock leveling spring.

Aren't CV joints sort of notorious for making a sound on the side opposite of the direction you're turning? I would have joints and boots checked.

answer sounds like shock absorber problem

It may also be an intermediate shaft that needs lube. Common on Some GM vehicles.

sway bar endlinks could be loose or damaged. especially if this is happening at low speeds (driveway) and only when you turn in one direction

Mine was making a knocking sound and I filled it up with premium gas. Sounds crazy but it actually stopped the valves from chattering. Might try it on your next fill up. 93 Octane.
