New Shocks, Now New Knock/Clunk Over Bumps

I've just installed new shocks on my 1997 Suburban K1500 4WD. Now there's a knock that appears to come from the driver's side. The knock seems to be as the wheels descend while crossing rolling bumps rather than abrupt jolts; for example; pot holes or running over reflectors imbedded in the road don't cause the knocking.

Here's what I've checked: balljoints, inner and outer tie rods, idler arms are OK; brake calipers secure; sway bar link are good; 4WD is fine; steering shaft is OK (don't feel the knock in steering wheel); can't find anything loose.

I'm stumped...anyone got any ideas?
