    Probably Stabiliser Link.

    If not, broken coil spring or CV joint, maybe? Stab link is cheapest to do first.

    Could be the strut top bearing,get someone to sit in the car and operate the steering from lock to lock while you place your hand on top of the strut inside the engine bay,sometimes a knock can be felt.

    Hi, had this on mine DO please check it before driving the car! There is a brake pipe that can catch on the spring cup on the suspension leg, wearing at it and making a knocking sound. Mine was nearly worn through and needed replacing, has a different bend shape to the offside pipe. I have lowered springs on mine prehaps that didn't help or it may have dislodged when I had a spring break on that side? Either way worth checking.
