calipers just tighten on.

The knocking noise is your end links and bushes in the front suspension. Pretty common failure and you should (1) get your brakes checked to make sure the calipers are on tight (if that's even the problem - I suspect you'd have a very hard time with crazy mad shimmy when braking if they were loose) and (2) get the front suspension inspected.

Without inspection you will end up throwing parts at it until you eventually fix the problem. Your best course of action is to determine exactly what the fault(s) is (are) before you go tearing into it.

I would only buy the bolt kit if 1) a bolt was damaged, or, 2) one has fallen out. Otherwise, the caliper bolts can be re-used as long as they are properly torqued.

I don't know if it's the control arm, a bushing in the steering rack or some other issue. I can't diagnose it as I obviously cannot hear the squeak.
