upper control arm bushes need looking at, Jack it up, pull the wheel, the upper control arm where it is secured has 2 mount points with a big bolt through it, the bush in these mount points deteriorates, check it out, should be NO movement laterally only suspension travel up and down.

I think I rambled but its clear enough I hope.
