    There's a distinctive knocking in the steering column when driving slowly over speed humps, I've not sensed this any other time, maybe it's the relatively slow speed and direct / even pressure on both front suspension that's causing this?

    I've tried a search here but found little info. Is this a known issue on r230s or even is it the suspension?
    TIA
