    I found out that, like many 4Runners, the tire-flap or guard rubs against the tire, only on that side, in front, and only in reverse, because of an odd angle. Good to know it's nothing more serious.

It sounds as if your CV joint may be going bad, unfortunatly i can't tell you how to check it yourself.

Knocking in the front driver side wheel


if the knocking is only on the drivers side when you turn to the right then it sounds like you have a drivers side front wheel bearing that needs replacing. also if the bearing is bad enough you won`t have to turn much to get the noise.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.
