On decel, this really can't be knock. Besides your engine has reduced 
compression ratio, so it really won't knock at any time.

Did you have windows open? Could the sound have been reflecting back to 
you from outside?

Can you describe the noise better? What speed, what gear? Have you had 
any of your wheels off lately, could a lug bolt be loose? Could there be loose 
CV joint bolts? Dirt/rust caught behind one of the brake rotors?

Is there any chance that this was coming from the voltage regulator under 
the back seat, driver's side?
