If you drive rough roads regularly, you may have a blown shock absorber. You can test it to get a little idea of whether this has happened by using an oldtimer's method that isn't very precise but can help:
From the front of the car, cause each side (one at a time) to bounce by pressing then letting go repeatedly on a fender. When you let go, do it at the bottom of the bounce and note what the fender does. If it rises once, falls, then stops, it is probably OK. If it kind of fades away, then the shock isn't having any influence on it and must be replaced. I should say both should be replaced; never only one.  As warned, this isn't an absolute test but you can get some kind of a feel for the shocks this way.

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.

Front end knocking from 97 sebring


Move it to 3rd instead of drive and see if you still have the noise. May be transmission related since you have replaced everything else.
