Probably your pinion bearing. That can make your pinion wiggle and knock. That is actually how mine started. If that is it you have a timebomb with about 300 miles left if your lucky and don't get it fixed. Sounds like 8.8 time. Btw, the knock is probably the pinion hitting the carrier. Mine was chewed to pieces.
