Question Renault Espace 3 - Front Suspension Knock*FIXED*

I've got a knock on both sides of my Espace which gets worse in wet weather,the knock is at the top both sides.
I've had a look up in the arch and the spring is jumping round rather than moving freely.

Am I right in thinking this is down to the top suspension mounts?? Also would this cause the steering to pull intermittantly?
Sometimes it pulls left and others it is true(noticeable when looking at the steering wheel)and I dont want it to eat the 4 tyres I put on it last month

I ask because after having a read through the forums and elsewhere on the net,people are talking about a bearing(or is this incorperated into the top mount)

I have priced them up on Euro Car Parts and I have to service it this week anyway and have a spare few quid (for a change) but I cant afford to replace Strus/tops/springs in one hit.

Any help appreciated

I wear the trousers in our house

She just tells me what colour :D
