another suspension knock.

I have read through loads of posts, but still can't pin down the knock on the front suspension. I had a lower arm rear bush go. So I have replaced both sides front and rear bushes on the lower arms with poly bushes, then had it tracked. Sounded great for 3 days, then the knock came back. Checked the suspension again, and bottom ball joint had a bit of play, near side, so I replaced that. 3 days and it came back, this time the track rod end was showing a little play, so it was replaced. 3 days and its back again, only this time there is no play what so ever anywhere. If I am pointing up hill and pull away I get a double clonk and I can feel it through the steering wheel. Occasionally when I brake I get it but as a single clonk. I have checked everything but can't find anything loose or worn.
Any ideas guys where to look next
Thanks in advance.

Hi Its had a new prop and bearing, and rear drop links as well. The knock can be felt through the steering wheel. The anti roll bar bushes seem ok. I have had it in the air and a bar under the wheels to lift them, to see if there's another joint gone.
That's how I found the bottom ball joint, but its solid both sides. Just can't seem to track it down.
