Are you sure its the upper wishbones, have you check the drop links on the anti roll bar? - these make a lot of noise over bumps

Normally knocking is from the ARB as mentioned before, if you get it on a ramp I think you can just jiggle it and check for play.

The upper wishbones normally squeak, not knock
