Hollow Knock In Front End and Pulling to Left When Braking

I have two issues to discuss in this thread.

1. I notice when it gets a little chilly in the morning, my front end makes a little bit of noise. This noise occurs when I go over bumps and sometimes when I'm not even going over bumps. Its like a hollow knocking or tapping from the drivers side. I don't know what it is.

2. I have noticed that when I apply the breaks at a high rate of speed or just hard in general, my car pulls to the left. We just got new front brakes and rotors about a month ago. This was actually doing this before we changed the brakes and rotors so I am a little confused.

Any help on these topics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

1 is probably sway bar end links.

2 could be ball joints (upper or lower) or tie rods.

Bottom line, time to check your suspension for wear.

Check strut rod bushings at the frame and at the lower control arm.

I had the same problem with pulling, but to the right. After replacing the calipers, it turned out to be the strut rod bushings at the control arm.
