weird knocking sound from left front

car knocks as i drive forward from left front side... sounds like something is loose. I have new end links, control arms, and control arm bushings. I jacked the car and checked the torque of most items. can the shocks be the cause since they are original?? even during a slow roll with no bumps in the road i can hear the thump sound. I'm confused.

I was poking fun at the fact that i had the same "suspension problem" once and it wound up being my motor mount being busted which resulted in my engine hitting my hood. Baffled us for a while tho looking for the suspension clunking

Probably a control arm bushing or sway bar endlink.
