Knocking in rear drivers side wheel

Ok, so I have an '06 wk limited. Just replaced the rear shocks with sensa tracs and threw on 1.5" spacers. All was good for about a week, now I have a knocking noise coming from what seems to be the wheel area. I can hear and feel a consistent knock on every rotation of the tire.
Jacked her up, pulled off the wheel and did some checks. Calipers are good and tight, lugs on spacers are tight, shook everything I could get my hands on and it all seems good. Maybe a bearing issue? All helpful thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

You could pull everything apart and inspect that your parking brake shoes have not started to come apart.

First thing that came to my mind too. The parking brake will make a knocking kind of noise if the shoe's set or otherwise contacting the rotor.

Thanks guys! I found the culprit though. It was actually coming from the other side entirely. Turns out two of the nuts holding the spacers on loosened up and was causing some play. Anyone know if it's a good idea to throw some thread lock on or not? I don't like the idea because I'd like to have no issues removing them, but I think I like the idea of a wheel flying off a bit less!
