After installing new ball joints (upper and lower) the knocking noise at take-off and stopping didnt get much better. Any info or feedback on this subject would be great.
thank you!

Did you double check all your front end parts to make sure they were all tight.

Everything is tight and I am almost 100% positive that the noise is the ball joints. How important is the type of grease. At first I used mag1 super lithium grease after new balljoint installation after driving for a few miles the noise came back so I then put in a redish collered chevron ultra duty ep nlgi2 grease
thank you for your timely reply and please state on your next reply wheather or not the grease IS or just MIGHT be the problem and if possable what grease I should use thank you!

To be honest I never seen grease be a concern with that. I have used a ton of different styles and brands of grease and never had a problem

Well I think the only balljoints that are loose arent the ones on my vehicle. The ones in my head may need some new grease though. At the same time I greased up the balljoints and ruptured the seals I also oiled the door hinges. Well with doors open the noise mysteriosely dissapeared thanx for your time and if I have any more lamebrain questions I will give you another dollar to tell me i'm an idiot!

Thanks again
