Groaning noise from front suspension

I' ve noticed a strange goaning together with a clanky noise coming from the front suspension over the last week or so. It is progressively getting worse. It only used to start after a journey of around 20 mins but now it seems to do it all the time. Could it be the bushes on the upper steering arm (guessing). It has nothing to do with the rotation of the wheels themselves. When stationary, if you waddle the steering whell from side to side it does it then. Any clues guys?
Is it dangerous to drive.
If it is bushes on the steering arms' is it an easy job to do yourself.
Should I replace them with polypropolene ones instead of the standard ones?

Got the car checked out by Albertos Alfa and he says that the anti roll bar end link rods bushes have gone on both sides.
The car is still under waranty but do you think this will be covered.
He says there is also play in the steering rack.
