I would check first the drop links on the end of the front anti roll bar to the suspension struts and the bushes around the front anti roll bar (inside the clamps, holding the bar to the front cross member). The noise going over bumps may well be slackness (all be it a fraction) in the drop links or the ARB 'bouncing and knocking' in the clamps.

They (almost) all do that, Sir......

At least mine does, and has done through two MOTs - I'd bought new droplinks expecting a fail first time around, but tester was happy that movement was minimal. The ARB brackets may be the culprit but are harder to get at......
