Link rod broke during removal.
Broke at the screw threads section.

After replacement, is the knocking sound gone? Lucky broke during removal and not while cornering.

No more knocking noise. But unlikely from link rod.

The bushings seems slightly more stiff than the factory. Could be due to the feedback from my tires. Overall quite happy with the result.

Should be link rod from my experience. For my case, I thought it was the brushes. after replacing them, the knocking sound at the front still persist. So i change out the linkrod and the sound is gone for good.

After stripping the sticky stuffs, use polish to buff it till black colour.

A coat of black colour paint will be perfect.
