A Google search led me to believe it was the CV joints; however, I have inspected the CV joint boots, and they seem to be in perfect condition...no rips or tears, and no oil or grease seems to be leaking out.
This knocking noise only happens when I apply the brakes, not when I am turning a corner. Also the sound seems to be coming from the rear, particularly the left rear tire.
I recently replaced the rear break drums ( I didn't touch any of the other brake mechanisms), but my wife says this knocking noise started before I did this.
