Suspension noise


I am a FD2 owner from Hong Kong. I have bought the car for 5 months. Ever since I owned the car, I find that there is a metal-to-metal knocking noise while I am making a turn on a bumpy road at speed. I am not quite sure where the noise is coming from. Spring? Shocks? Anti-roll bar?
Hope that someone can help me to sort this out. ray:
She comes with Modulo suspension and that's the only suspension mod. The drop is mild, only 10mm lower than stock.

Here is a video. The knocking noise isn't very loud. Please turn up the volume a bit. Thx.

Haven't watched the video, but that sort of noise is typically caused by the droplinks.

Got back to you on fd2 owners too, try the bolts where the subframe mounts to the chassis. They are known to get loose there apparently. Same noise on mine and got these tightened and no noise since. Mechanic said he got a full turn on some of these
