I had this suspension knock on the right front side of the car. When driving into potholes with my left front wheel shock is absorbed normally, yet when I drive into a pothole or any bigger road unevenness with my right front wheel I get a huge knock which rattles the whole car, transmits to the interior. Furthermore when I do a sharper right turn and press accelerator more I get this same knocking (rapidly repeating - probably caused by wheelspin). Wheels are true. I have recently changed the right side wheel bearing and control arm bushings, yet the problem was both before and after these repairs. I can also feel a slight knock when pressing the brake pedal sharply.
What may be the cause? Has anyone experienced such a problem?

knock

Try to jab the brake pedal aggressively, not a steady pressure. If you feel the knock - its control arms. Not inexpensive.

I had a loud knocking on my car and turned out to be the end links. Sounded like a loud clank and only at low speed over uneven roads or speed bumps

Strut mounts are also known to go bad and cause knocking over bumps.

Does it happen when accelerating hard in 1st and 2nd gear?

I second strut mounts as well and possibly the motor mounts.

How many miles on your car?

I have a good used set of front sway bar end links you can have, just pay shipping.
