Not sure about a TSB, but major issues with front bushings with overseas PT's and a few of them over here. The most common bushing is the one in the picture below with the shinny nut at the bottom.

ALL the PT's, GT or not, have the same lower "A" arm with the attached bushings, and if they wear out prematurely, will cause knocking and banging in the front end.
