Default Small Knock

ok, going down the road, i can feel a slight knock in my steering wheel, now sometimes, it becomes more noticeable when I turn left. Now I know I need an alignment, (and Im gonna get that done tomorrow), but could an alignment cause that, I had a thought that it could be a ball joint or a bearing. If it is a balljoint/bearing, I was going to change them out when I did my spindle lift.
Also I noticed it with my old and new wheels
Any thoughts?

Default Re: Small Knock

having a problem that sounds allot like this... swapped a intermediate steering shaft with slight amount of play in the sliding portion to no solution. I checked the bearings - and their sound with the right torque.
Seems like its somewhere between the bearings and the power steering unit...

Does your knock sensation happen due to slight changes or bumps in the road? (the case for mine)
