Default Volvo 2.9 twin turbo T6 HELP HELP HELP

Hello can you help me?
I bought a S80 T6 saloon (4 door) , It is the 2001 SE version, tiptronic gearbox and has about 290 bhp i have a knocking noise coming from the front right suspension which is driving me mad!!

It happens when I go over anytype of bump I have replaced the bushes and the shocks any ideas

its done just over 100,000 miles

Ps i live in England

Thanks Dennis

It could be a quite a few things, from a bad spring, bushing, tie rod, etc...

If you recently replaced the shocks, did the noise start happening shortly after, if so, the spring my not be seated properly.
