190e front tire wear...sway bar bushings?

Found tire wear on the inner sides of both front wheels, slightly worse on the right one.Rear ones are fine.

Tested the shocks with the "bounce test" and they look normal.

Other thing I have noticed is that at around 90km/h, when going over small bumps, there is a "thunk" which can be felt thru' the steering column.

What gives???

From other posts, the sway bar bushings would be suspect.

Could it also be other stuff like ball joints, steering damper, center link, etc?

Yesterday, on both front tyres, I found the pressures were around 20psi, so I had them up to around 28.Would low tyre pressures account for the wear?
