Exclamation Some type of knocking sound?

Hey everyone. So today, well Saturday when I got off of work, stopped by Walmart to pick up some seafoam and other goodies and while I was driving home, a strange knocking sound came off the truck and I do not know what it was. It sounded like it was from underneath because I felt it on my gas pedal. I pulled over and checked the engine bay and it's all good and then checked underneath and found that my catalytic converter was smoking but then I saw it could have some oil on it. I have no idea what it was but I got home without it making anymore noise. Any idea on what this could be? I put in Seafoam once I got home and ran that but haven't took it for a drive yet (scared it might break on me). Any help on this would be so helpful. Thank you!

Update 9/28/2010:

The clunking and vibration is eliminated! It was a really, really bad wheel bearing on my front right tire. Guy said if I drove it anymore, it would of locked up my tire and cause an accident so I'm glad I got it fixed. They also replaced my worn POS Autolite Spark Plugs with some Bosch plugs and wires and I can finally hit 6000 RPM lol. Before I can only go up to 4500 and that sucked badly. But everything is good and thanks for yall's help on this.
