knocking sound

Knocking noise when hitting bumps in the road. Sounds like it is mostly coming from the passenger's side. But sometimes it sounds like it is coming from the rear.

Check out the ball jonts on the front, and then check the suspension out.
(Check out for normal suspension travel, check for shock leaks, broken leaf springs, any loose/missing bolts, etc.)

Also check out the exhaust and see if it's coming into contact with the suspension, and if any of the heat shields are hitting the exhaust. I had one of my heat shields rust out and was hitting the exhaust. I just cut it off when I installed the new exhaust.
