Could be the lower suspension arm bushes or balljoint all come complete as one new arm and retail
to fit yourself around 80 each arm for a good quality one,buying cheap ones do not pay as balljoint rubbers and bushes go after short time.

Should also check its not the front suspension strut going as this will knock also and is most common.

Unfortunately both problems don't become clear until the strut springs are released from the hub
as under tension they are hard to find try levering around with a metal bar and see if you can see any
movement.
