Thanks guys, been to look at it today and the noise comes and goes as you drive along, pretty quiet so i might not have noticed it if he hadn't told me. car tracks fine and goes lock to lock and round corners fine, had a look underneath and nothing looked untowards, suspension settled normally and I checked the other side to compare, nothing was loose or broken.
Speedo and mpg meter didn't work but the odomoter was still on, rev counter, temp and fuel gagues all working fine.
Car drove nicely and bodywork and chassis were as to be expected for a 14 year old car in good condition. Spoke to my father-in-law who's an MOT tester and he thinks the knocking could be a bottom ball joint, he's coming down with me this afternoon to jack it up and check it out. Hoping the speedo is just a fuse.
Request for clarification (RFC):
Thrust arm & the control arm, are the same??
What is the sway bar endlinks??
