Possible sources include a blown shock, worn wheel bearing, worn tie rod end.
A bad shock can sometimes be located by bouncing one corner of the car at a time and watching how that corner settles; if released at the bottom of the stroke, the car should not do more than rise above level and drop again. Any more action points to a shock that isn't tight anymore.
A worn bearing can often be found by grasping the top of the tire and checking for play by pushing it in and pulling it out again; there shouldn't be any noise or noticeable play.
By having someone at the wheel, worn suspension points will show play as the wheel is turned back and forth at a medium pace; look for suspension points with abnormal movement and don't respond to a reversal of turn direction instantly.
The last two problems will be seen if a wheel alignment is attempted and will cause the measurements to vary from one time to the next.

Sounds like a strut issue. If knocks when hitting a bump. You can remove the strut. If you can close it by hand relativly easy. Strut is out

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.

There are a few suspension parts that can cause knocking noises. Such as swar bar loose, strut mounts going bad. You should really have a shop do a complete suspension check.
