If it's on one side only, varies directly with speed and is worse when turning on full lock then it's a driveshaft CV joint which is faulty. The fix is to replace the joint and on some models (you didn't specify the exact one) a whole or partial driveshaft must be replaced.

If the knocking is random and seems to occur with road undulations, then it's most likely to be a failed suspension bushing, a failed balljoint, a broken shock absorber (US=damper) or shock absorber mounting, or even a broken spring or loose wheel. There are other possible causes as well.

A noisy CV joint needs to be repaired promptly, but is not immediately urgent, but all of the other causes are potentially severely dangerous and must be diagnosed and repaired immediately. Leaving them not only puts the lives of you and others at risk, but it causes enormous strain on other components and the repair bill rapidly escalates.

Front end noise, steering or suspension on 2010 GL350 BluTec


Suspension and steering noises also need to be checked out as soon as possible to be safe. When a suspension component, such as a tie rod end or a ball joint is badly worn, it can separate, sometimes even causing the vehicle to lose control. If you hear a knocking or other noise from the steering or suspension, have it checked out. Here are few examples of the typical suspension and steering noises. Of course, there could be a lot more problems in the suspension and steering that can cause various noises. Any noise should be properly diagnosed.

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.

Knocking noise front suspension


It very well could be a ball joint, but I would check your strut tower. When they come loose, they hit the fender where the connection is. Pop the hood, and look where the tower comes up, push down on the fender and see if it moves. That may be your problem. Hope that helps
