You need to get underneath the car with a flashlight and inspect the entire front suspension and steering components. This includes ball joints, control arm bushings (upper and lower), idler arm, tie rods, etc. It could be any of those. The ball joints and control arm bushings require a spring compressor to change.

If the spring compressor I rented gets here today or tomorrow, I'll be changing out most of the rubber in my front suspension this weekend (on both cars).
