FORD BANTAM BUMP PROBLEM

2010 Ford Bantam • 60,000 miles

Whenever I go over small bumps the car I hear a knocking sound coming from the front wheels both sides. Some one told me to check Stabiliser bar How can I check to see it is worn and can it bea easily replaced

Very common problem on bantams. Worn stabilizer bushes.
Place the car on a level surface and do not jack it off the ground.
Turn steering full left check right hand side stabilizer bush by hand, if the bar moves with up and down free play then replace both sides.
About R150 each from ford.
