Question about 2003 Chrysler 300M
Hi, this could be down to a couple of things try driving over a bumpy road if the noise is then more often then the chances are the bottom ball joint has gone and will need replacing if it makes no difference then it could be the track rod end needs replacing, if the noise gets louder then it could also be the anti roll bar bushes gone.
Each of these would need checking you can do this by putting the car on axle stands then get a strong mettle bar (crow bar or bigger ) then put this under the tyre and work it up and down, get some one else to do this you need to do it quite hard then look at the bottom ball joint and see if their is any movement their should be none.
If their is no movement then you need to get hold of the tyre from left to right then try turning the tyre by hand quikly left and right if their is any play then this would indicate track rod end gone.
If their is no play their either then this would point towards the roll bar bushes gone.
Its always best to replace both sides at the same time but get this looked at sooner rather than later as it could mean you having nasty accident if any of these parts broke off due to the play in them, this would mean the car been unable to move and would cause alot of damage to other parts of the car such as the wing, inner wing, wheel bearing etc.
If your doing the work yourself then make sure you get a workshop manual as it isnt the easiest of jobs to do.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Wheelbearings being worn will give y that knocking the fact that it increases with increased speed jack up and check for wear by moving the tyre side to side and up and down if you find excessive movement your bearings should be looked at
