Default Knocking Sound on Ft Passenger

Ive had this really odd knocking/ metallic like sound coming from my front passenger side, especially when I go into a dip or hit a bump. Ive had both struts, sway bar links, front end alignment, and still no luck. I maybe thought it could be a strut mount possibly. If I can get feedback it would be highly appreciated.

Can you duplicate the sound, maybe bouncing the car when it's parked? Then you can have someone do that while you listen around down there to pinpoint the location.

My problem was the ball joints, but I would think you could reproduce the sound when stopped if that were the problem.

Photo?

Cracked bushings or leaking balljoints can be the cause of the knocking sound. Sometimes cracked bushings appear worse than they really are.

If your car is old enough it could even be the sway bar to frame bushings. You got one on either side.
