Front lower Ball Joints.

If you wait too long they can pop out while driving and whichever tire they come out of will be free to turn as it pleases without being connected to your steering wheel anymore. Usually causes fenderwell damage as well as tire damage since the tire quickly turns all the way to the inside causing the car to abruptly stop.

If you have stockers they need to be changed, if they are aftermarket go hook up a grease fitting to it and regrease them using a grease gun.

Good idea to change outer tie rod ends as well while you're there. You will need an alignment after your done.

Make sure you count how many threads are exposed for each side so you can correctly set your toe before your slow drive to get aligned. Your steering wheel will most likely be quite off but if you drive slow you'll be ok.

good luck :)
