Knocking from front n/s wheel area HELP!!!

Recently brought a 156 2.0 TS (V reg 2000)

The car has a metallic knocking sound coming from the front n/s wheel area as you are driving along and go over pot holes and bumps and such. It seems to be when there is vertical movement and not sideways if that makes sense.

I took it to a garage last week and had the f/n/s top wishbone changed, a new ARB and drop links and a number of bushes were changed also but even though the noise seemed to diaper for a day or so it is now back and seems worse.

The garage have no idea what it is so I ask for help from yourselves...

Thanks for any input in advance
