Hi i went to get my tyres done about 4 months ago now a few weeks after i was traveling down the motorway and had vibrations in the steering at 70-75.

Now i have noticed when i am going over bumps a loose knock sound and when going down the motorway, the once vibration is this knock sound.... not sure if they are related but doesnt sound good. have checked wheel knuts nothing loose there. any ideas?? thanks

Need to get it jacked up and checked out .Could be wishbone arm bushes , steering joints , wheel bearings , coil springs etc . etc.

check track rod ends by jacking her up and seeing if the wheels move from top to bottom ie. rock the wrong way, check suspension and get your tracking done.
