Knock in the differential! Need to drain the oil and check for metal in the oil or broken parts! With differential having ring gear and pinion, and a set of inner gears, any tooth broken or chipped would cause knock. And if there is metal in the oil, it can cause bigger problems. You have jacked up cart and checked to be sure noise is not in wheel area?
