I had a customer with a similar problem. Cured it by removing the bowling ball from the boot! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Only kidding. :roll:

Check all the suspension rubbers, and the ball joints. Could be any number of things,Good luck. 8-)

Usually it will be worn bushes, best place to start looking is upper control arms. Easiest to see, also the most common culprit.
