F430 knocking noise on full lock

Hello

my first post on the forum, and its one asking for advice!

I have just got my first Ferrari, an F430 a couple of months ago and so far am loving it! But it looks like I might have an issue..

when I am on full lock (which I need to get out of my drive) I get a knocking noise coming from the front end, and its quite loud! this is not the "tyres dragging" on the tarmac sound that I know you get

my first though is either bushes or ball joints..

anyone else experienced this?

thanks

Welcome to Flife! Would be nice to introduce yourself in the new members thread and tell us something about yourself! (do include some pics of your F430, we always like that!)

Re. your question, could it be that the tires are touching the fender(s) somehow on full lock? Do you have the standard factory wheels and tires or did you go for bigger tires?

ah yes, that is on my to do list (I don't have the pics at work!)

tyres aren't touching the wings (fenders) as they are the standard wheels/ tyres combo

thanks
