Well, it sure sounds like it.


I can step up in the passenger side while parked and it still makes the noise by giving it a little downward pressure.. thoughts?

You check ball joints for play by jacking the tire just off the ground, take a pry bar, and then pry the tire up looking for play. Then you try to move them outwards and such checking for play.

Yep.. that's the plan tonight/tomorrow... But, it was a quick guess.
