A 6 year old car does not have to be abused to make a knocking noise. thrust rod bushings are a common wear item on your chassis. I would have those checked along with the rest of the suspension components. Obviously no one can diagnose a noise over the internet but thats a good place to start.
I’m pretty new to this forum as well and I seem to be having similar problem with my 2000 528i with 90,000Miles.
When driving slow and hitting bump I could hear the clunking noise coming from front suspension (I hear it coming from the driver side). When driving at the speed between 50-60mph I feel little vibration on the steering wheel as well as I hear like wobbling noise(sounds like loose part vibrating, etc) coming for the same area.
I have mechanic look at it and he claimed he checked bushings, arms and stabilizer links and everything seem to be tight. He says it maybe steering rack that is causing this noise and suggesting replacing steering rack.
Also, I want to mention that I don’t feel any play when moving steering wheel, feels perfectly smooth, not any kind of noise.
Has anyone experience same or similar issue? Any ideas?
Do you think steering rack should be replaced?
Your help/opinion would be greatly appreciated
