your automobile my son has had it, no it would probably not cause the knock, lift the car up with a hydraulic lifting devise grab hold of the wheels (one at a time) grab it side to side and feel for movement then grab the top and bottom and feel for movement if you feel movement this will probably be causing the knocking you say on your automobile

I did jack up the front end and shook eatch tire up and down and side to side nothing seemed to be loose not the ball jonts or the tie rods thats why I posted my question

C/V joints, inner tie rod ends and bad wheel bearings can cause a knocking sound, but I would say more of a clunking noise.

Is there any way I can test the c/v joints there are no inner tie rods the rod goes right in the racket pin on both sides

The inner tie rods are inside the rack and pinion unit, you will have to raise the vehicle and block in the proper location on the lower control arms so the suspension is still loaded, then have some one turn the steering wheel to the right as you manually spin the wheels and listen for the noise or watch the joints for excessive up and down movement as you move the wheels.

If it is the inner tie rods do I have to replace the racket pin
