K1500 front end "Knocking" Sign In

93 Chevy K1500 it does have over 200k miles on it 4WD 350 V-8
I have a "knocking" in the front end it gets real bad when I make a left turn at driving speed. I found the rt. 1/2 shaft spittin grease so I replaced it along with the hub assy. (No change) I checked the lft. frt. axle it looks fine. Is there something else I need to be checking? Thanks

George; The symptoms sound like a faulty CV joint. Raise the vehicle and see if you can feel any play in the joint. Or, have someone walk along side of you while you turn and accelerate (lightly) from a stop going forward, reverse, right turn, left turn, ect..
