Default Knock Knock

No...this isn't a thread for a bad joke... Just thought I would post that I am hearing a knocking noise somewhere in the front of my car when I hit bumps. It'* not even every single bump, but only sometimes, and it sounds like the wheel is rattling, and i'm noticing that the car isn't handling as well (steering wheel isn't as tight).
I thought it could be a strut at first but it'* not clunking when I am turning, which would normally be a big strut indicator. I'm going to try to get it looked @ today and figure out what it is exactly. Thinking it might even be a ball joint too.

Ball joints, tie rods and hubs. All the nasties of the front end. Get Drifter to do the work for ya...I'd send in the 420 troops if I was close enough!

I'd say hub/bearing, but only because I have a couple doing that now. It could still be just about anything. Without jacking the car up in the freezing cold and pulling and wiggling on stuff, it'* hard to tell.

I bet Drifter would like to watch you do that. Pulling and wiggling under your car.
