The knocking happens on both sides when travelling on normal town/city roads only when going over manhole cover or uneven road, whilst travelling on motorway or smooth roads there is no problem.
Sounds like when a shock absorber bottoms out!!!
Peugeot acknowledge there is knocking cannot find it and will not investigate further until it developes?
O/S Ball joint replaced
O/S Engine Mounting replaced

Suggested Solution

anti roll bar links are normally a common fault as well as bushes,raise the front of the car off the ground using axle stands if you have any,wobble each wheel top to bottom and left to right,there should be no play,spin the wheel by hand to check for bearing noise,bottom balljoint rubber boots,track rod end rubber boots for splits/damage and there should be no play,check lower arm bushes for splitting,check shock absorber top mount is not loose/damaged and check springs on front shocks are not broken,can you reproduce the noise yourself if you bounce the front suspension whilst car stationary?

Hey mate, have they checked the crank pulley as this has a rubber damper inside which can create a knock when worn they last about 50k miles if not the alternator clutch pulley could be goosed, this causes vibration through the belt and makes a racket! Hope this helps

Suggested Solution

IT will be either your strut top mounts or subframe bushes that need replaced. thats if its not your anti roll bar bushes/droplinks.
This is a very common fault on 308's
In fact my own car has this very problem & Im replacing top mounts tomorrow
