Knocking under driver side

I have a '99 Wrangler with 100k miles. Whenever I'm driving and go over a bump or slow down to a stop, there's this knock which seems to be underneath the drivers seat or center console. I was thinking maybe the transfer case linkage? Has anyone had this problem/know how to fix it?

Sounds like the transfer case shifter linkage problem. There is a TSB number for this issue. There is a kit for $20 you can get from the dealer to replace the bushings. I did this but it only lasted about 2 yrs before it started knocking again. You may want to just put a Novak shifter in there and forget about it. Especially if you plan to do a bodylift or suspension lift in the future. I wish I had.

Update: I did a search and found this:
