So I am driving last night and I am going over some bumps and pot holes. I then get to a road where it is flat. Now I am hearing a knocking sound comming from the front end espically when under 30 and braking. I do hear it when not on the brakes too. Does any one know what this could be??
Sounds like you might have a loose end link. I had this issue myself. Dealership didn't find it, but when some of the guys got on here told me to go through all all the bolts on the suspension, I found I had an end link that wasn't fully tight. Cranking that sucker down got rid of all the noise.

It could be a lot of thing, however. First thing to look at might be the sway bar bushings. Hope its them, cause they're cheap and easy to replace.

The sound happened right after I went over all those bumps and potholes. I have just had my oil changed thats it.
Any one else know what this might be?
There are soooo many possibilities from the endlink to... If you see nothing obvious take it into Rob's shop and you and he will check it together.
Check your outer tie rods. I had a knock over bumps that was from a loose tie rod joint. Sway bar links and bushings may cause knocking over bumps too.
Have you tried going through and tightening down the bolts and stuff? Best to give everything a twist, it may take a while, but I'm sure something came loose. Can't pinpoint the problem with "there's a noise from the front end." Best to get in there and start cranking stuff. I'm sure you'll find it. Most likely it doesn't have anything to do with the brakes themselves.
Have you also tried to retorque your Lug nuts? Maybe a wheel is slightly loose. After going over bumpy roads, anything could had shook itself loose. Lift the car up and start tighening stuff down. Or take it somewhere and have them tighten everything down.
Ive heard problems about pins in the calipers. Pass. side specifically. Could be an issue..
I'm having the same knock/sqeak. Hard to tell where its at, but it sounds like its behind my passenger brakes. Maybe mines the caliper pins.
Anybody mentioned torsion struts yet. You might have those checked
