Alfa 159 jtdm knocking noise on the front wheels.

Hello everyone, my name is Yair and im from Israel, im new here and hope you can help me.

I notice that its come on just low speed and when i put some Gas. When i leave the gas its stop! And last thing i think that the steering wheel is a bit heavy...Thanks!

Mine was a failure of the steering tie rods:

Also the steering rack was't bolted down properly, which was a worry!

Check the usual balljoints and bushes as well on the upper and lower arms if this isn't your problem though.
