Front Wh216eel Bearings Loose?

Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Model: 911 Carrera; Year: 1985; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 114,000;

When I shake the front wheels side to side by either pushing and pulling the top of the tire with my hands or by pushing the top of the tire with my foot, I can get a knocking sound very local to the front hubs. I cannot hear any wheel bearing noise while driving the car. I only notice that there is play in what seems like the hubs. Do I need to adjust or repack the wheel bearings? Should loose rear wheel bearings produce a similar loose, knocking sound with side to side pushing of the rear wheels?
