Hopefully i can help..


Could be several things that could cause that from Antiroll bar links or the ball joints too much wear and thus causes a knocking effect to be heard when going over bumps in the road etc.. Worn/loose lower ball joint or lower control arm bushings worn causing too much play/movement again head usually when over bumps etc - front wheel drive outer cv to hub has excess wear - usually any sort of knocking on one particular side is mostly a suspension issue or one of the first places to inspect before anything further is checked..But as above those would be the areas to check first if it hasnt been done so far upto now..I do hope this helps
