Knocking - Front L/H/S turning left

Hi all,
any suggestions as to cause of knocking/rumbling from front L/H/S when turning left, usually notice when tighter turn at low speed?
Going to get this checked at garage at weekend just looking for suggestions/common fault ie, drop-link, anti-roll bush or top mount???
Cheers in advance
Rob

Still going to get this checked but should add that I had set Tein lowering springs fitted 4weeks ago and after reading few posts on here about them I'm wondering if thats them just settled in and causing the problem

Big thanks to stevov, approx 1hr visit and we had resolved the prob
Turned out that was a mistake made when had the springs fitted, the spring base and top plates were not lined up correctly (2 holes), so removed the strut and corrected, no more knocky knocky
Aswell as this stevov replaced the coils/leads with spares and the missfire on boost also gone. Happy Days + again big thanks to Stevov for his help and very reasonable prices
