Sounds like you need to drop the tranny and investigate the release bearing

The suggestions you were given are pretty good. The knocking noise when turning the wheel could be the axle. If it is you would be able to here it when making a hard u-turn. Check the other side by both methods as well. It could be a wheel bearing.
As far as the clutch noises, the throw out bearing and/or pilot bearing are most likely the problem.
It sounds like you should get a clutch kit, which will have a clutch plate, pressure palte, thowout bearing and pilot bearing, pull the tranmission and have a transmission shop inspect it and get a new set of axles.
With the mileage you have if you have never replaced any of these it is due for them. The wheel bearings can be checked while the work is getting done by rotating them and check for smooth and tight operation.

Thanks; so it has 2 problems/solutions; 1. Knocking sound - the axle in transmissions needs to be replace( nothing heard when I did the hard left/right turn
2. Whining/rattling - New clutch kit.

Thank you very much on your cooperative support guys.

Your very welcome. Ras has been here a long time and I always feel good when he and I are on the same track. He is a real pro.
So, you have a good direction and it is well founded.
Come back any time you need anything else.
