Default Knock when turning

I have an intermittent knock when turning... normally when fairly hard turn to the left. If I pull into car park, almost full lock left, then when starting to reverse and turn to the right, I hear/feel a knock.. does it also when turning left into my road and going over the manhole, and likewise when reversing off the drive turning left at the same time it can knock when coming off the pavement. It was in Peugeot a fortnight ago for something else, and I asked them about this, but they've said they can't find anything wrong, but I'm not convinced myself. Any ideas what it could be?

BTW, ball joints were replaced last year, approx 10k miles ago

Broken spring? Drop link? Shock absorber?

Droplink - not sure what this is?
Spring and shock are fine - should be easy to see if these are faulty, and its generally good over bumps, no knocks over speed bumps etc, only intermittently when turning left and go over a bump. Just come home and when it knocked before, it was completely fine this time in exactly the same places

Sounds like droplinks. The only verticle bar in the suspension. Sometimes plactic, and therefore crap!

These droplinks are pennies on eBay... anyway of me being able to confirm this is the fault?
Would I need to do both sides at the same time? and would it be something that someone with basic DIY car skills could change?

Piece of piss mate. Hard to check though, when the car is jacked up they don't move much coz the weight is hanging! If you can reach them when the car's on the ground they'll move a bit.

Now they aren't the easiest things to get at when the wheels are on
But, managed to get in behind them and have a tug on them... they don't seem to move, just make the whole car wobble instead.
I presume if it is this, then the symptoms I described earlier would get worse and more frequent? Are there any other symptoms that I should look out for which would point to these? These are a new one on me, and don't really know what they do.

The car that Hursts were going to sell to me and then didn't knocked at the back every time it went over even a small bump, does yours do that at the front?

Not really, I can go over all bumps, speed bumps included and its fine... it just intermittently knocks when turning left at the same time as a bump, or as this morning, would knock when parking when there wasn't any bumps at all
