Question ft end knock ???

when i first start up the prowler and drive it out of my drive way and turn there is a first inital knock in my front end. it seems to do it when the suspension compressed and im turning, but i dont have a problem with it on the trail or high speed could it be my steering or cv shafts i was told to pull them and pack more grease in there. is there any truth to that opinions please... everything is tight up front and 4wd workd great i dont have a locker, 07 650 h1 should i be concerened or just drive the piss out of it haha

I had a similar problem, found the front shock mounts (lower) way too tight. Try loosening the mounts and see if the sound goes away.

My noise was tires hiting the bumper when susp. compressed and turning.
I too thought front end but noticed paint rubbed off of bumper and found a clearance issue.

It may be a CV knock. If you can determine which one then disassembly, inspect and repack if they look good.

Mine is just like the others, I got a used 07 this year and it pops only once in the front end when I first pull it out of the garage. Haven't found the noise yet.

I had the same issue only the first time when I backed out of garage. Mine hasnt made it sense I put new shocks on and changed mounts. Dont know if that fixed it or what, but it certainly stopped.
