wheel bearings & bushes

Guys (and Girls), when I move off or change gear I can hear and feel a knocking noise from the front - do you think the wishbone bush's(es?) are worn?
Also, I believe the wheel bearings may be worn, I do not know which end as it is quite loud -is this a common problem?
How much for the replacement parts and where from?
PS I am still getting 1216 engine fault code (TPS) even though this has been replaced.

My 155 is having driveshaft surgery at the moment, a possibility? It knocked with increasing volume in gear but was ok when rolling at same speed in neutral.

check the bottom ball joint and bolt as well. I had a similar sympton and it turned out to be a flat side on the ball joint retaining bolt, allowing a bit of movement..

A broken antiroll bar drop link ??? One of mine snapped and the car clunked every time I breathed.

i think you will still get the fault code untill you re-set it.
