Front end noises

First off some specs, it's a 2000 with 120k miles, zone 3" lift with 1.25" bl and mml..

When I first did the 3" lift I had a strange knocking noise in the front end and I contributed it to the same thing causes my slight vibrations in the rear...well now I have the motor mount lift and and no vibrations but still have the knocking noise. It sounds like something banging together and definitely shows itself when I hit a bump but nothing appears to be rubbing underneath (checked front ds with exhaust parts and around the oil pan) not sure where to check next, i've checked to make sure everything is tight...I was thinking for the next step taking the front ds off and seeing if the noise stops....any one with more mechanical knowledge have any ideas?

Also, I am fairly certain it's in the the front end somewhere because I can feel it through the floorboard and around the "hump" where the t-case is
