Default Knock from steering, clutch AND brakes. Help!

I've had a knocking coming from the front of the car for a while now. It seems to be coming from the steering (while on full lock at slow speeds), when using the clutch pedal and, to a lesser extent, while using the brake pedal.

I know that steering knock is pretty common (I've had the seemingly age-old problem of power-steering fluid bubbling over accompanied by heavy steering and the problem always comes back) but I've never heard anyone who's had the knocking while using the pedals before.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? I mentioned it at my last service but they mechanic said he couldn't see anything obvious. I want to take it to the garage but want to arm myself with a little info so I can avoid getting fleeced.

If anyone could shed any light on this I'd be grateful.

Its your bottom balljoints
dont think it matters about the pedals thats probably just coincidence that you have your feet on them as your travelling slowly.

Balljoints are very cheap (think 7-ish) and simple to do

When you say 'simple to do', is this for a mechanic or a car dunce like myself (I can change a bulb but that's about it)?

half decent mechanic should be half an hour a side, if your not ok with spanners it can be quite daunting, plus i'm guessing you dont have Torx bits/right tools for the job.

It definitely sounds like a mechanic job so looks like i'll have to get a few quotes. Thanks for the reply.
