Default knocking noise from n/s passenger wheel area? 2002 honda civic type r?

Got a honda civic type r ep3 2002, been getting this knocking sound when braking at low speeds or while moving at low speeds. It doesn't happen all the the time and only seems to happen once car is warmed up. Its like in a rhythm depending how fast you are going. I also get a clonk from that side if I go over a bump, but this happens whether the car is warm or not, furthermore if I turn steering wheel whilst stationary it clonks as well. Had the car lowered on springs, had new brake pads and disc, had new ball joints, had new track rod end, had new anti roll bar links but problem is still there. Im thinking maybe the steering rack might need changing. Any ideas?

Wheel bearing has been changed as well, cv joint could be a possibility and it only does it when warm Hmmmm

I'd guess wheel bearing. jack the car up grab the wheel at 12 and 6 and if there is any movement at all it is some suspension component. If you spin it and hear any noise its definitely the wheel bearing.

other possible problems:

ball joint

cv joint

control arm bushings

I doubt its the steering rack but I have been wrong before
