R-Class knocking noise when braking

Please can anyone help out there.

I have a problem with my 2007 RClass Se Diesel. When I reverse and brake there is a clonking sound before I drive away. I do get this also somtimes when I am moving forward slowly and brake.
I have had the car in with a specialist and we have replaced the front and rear propshaft, front wheel bearings and front wheel connector joints.

I am thinking that this is a brake pad issue, any thoughts?

Does it happen when you go over bumps? Could be ball joints then.
Are your brake pads and rotors in good condition?
