Get under there and give everything a spanner check. Make sure all bolts are torqued correctly. Cross member as well.

Check the exhaust isn’t knocking on anything.

Hub and strut bolts torqued correctly.

If you've only done 1 ball joint check the rest. Ball joints can sound like they're coming from one side but can actually be the other side. If the kframe bolts are loose it can do the same thing.

I have a knock under brakes and sometimes over bumps. D bushes took care of most of it but it still knocks sometimes. I'm now going to replace the top four round link bushes and see if that takes care of the rest.

have you checked the notorious engine mounts especially if they have been replaced with the solid core ones which are felt thru the steering wheel, even front wheel bearing hubs knock/vibrate through the wheel

Tierod ends?

Get someone to wiggle the steering while you hold each tie rod end.

You know those brackets in the corners of the chassis in the engine bay. Give the nuts a tweek.
