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

I got an infinity 2005 g 35. I'm starting to hear a knocking noise. I don't know if its the engine, It sounds like it's coming from the side somewhere but definitely under the Hood.? Idk

if the knock speeds up with rpm increase then it definitely is the engine. if it is a solid sounding knock that would be bottom end. if it is more of a hollow knock or more like a tick then could be top end...lifters, exhaust leak or check to see if anything is hitting your cooling fan.

2005 trailblazer knocking sound front drivers side wheel when accelerating only

First check wheel bearing. Jack front end up lifting tires off ground and see if the wheel moves by pulling on the sidewall part of wheel from top and pushing bottom towards the car does this back and forth if there is play, wheel bearing could need replaced. Take tire off and check for loose brakes, loose calipers, loose dust shields , etc. everything except rotor should be tight.

There is a knocking in the front wheels primarily in the drivers side that seems to be consistant with the rotation of the tire meaning when I slow down the noise gets slower when I speed up the noise...

Sounds like a bad constant velocity shaft/axle. They are about $90 rebuilt, and are easy to replace, but involves removing the tire, and spindle.

My saturn started making a knocking sound seems to be coming from front driver side tire

jack up the front drivers side tire and try to move the tire up and down, there should no movement in it. If there is movement, the front hub(holds the tire to the car) is bad.
