    I’ve replaced the tie rod ends, caster arms, lower control rods, and sway bar bushes. Still getting a knock and clank from the front every now and then. Anyone any idea? More apparent when reversing and on full lock either left or right. Feels like the wheels are fighting against the steering and jumping a little sideways. Totally out of ideas now. Anyone had anything similar? It’s an 08 Omega btw.

    Have a look at your engine mounts, strut top bushes and the 6 bolts that hold the front end to the chassis. Those front end bolts need to be super tight or you will get clunks going over bumps.

    Hey mate, maybe ball joints if you haven’t replaced them with the lower control arms? +1 for sway bar link pins and struts/strut tops. Good luck
