Creaking over the front wheel

Forgive me if i should know this , but as i have no previous experience of car maintenance - changed my first air filter today (are all jobs that awkward????) - i though i would ask.

As you drive along there is a knocking (almost banging) sound from the front tires. If you stop get out and lean on the front suspension and push down there is a loudish squeeking/ creaking noise but only on the drivers side.

What is it?

Can i (with limited knowledge) but good with my hands () fix it?

Eb spares often do a deal on upper and lower wishbones it would be wise to buy a drop link as well because it needs to come off, often its easier to grind them off.
