Knocking Noise

I have a Knocking Noise only in idle and when i im taking a left turn it will do it too.I took it to the shop and they said the only Thing they said they saw wrong was the bushings on the rear swaybar,Or a U Joint in one of the tires does that seem right?

Not sure about the knocking while idle, but during turning might be the Swaybar links, check the ends, I had one a long time ago that busted off and would hit against the frame.

Otherwise try checking the axle u-joints, look at the caps to see if it looks like one might be spitting out or if there's damage. Turn the wheels out on each side so it give you better chance to look at the u-joints. Thats how I found one of mine bad a couple months ago, noticed it as I was walking up to the Jeep from the store.
