    quite hard to diagnose something like that over the tinterweb mate, maybe get a vid up on youtube to give aus an idea.

    your best bet is to jack the front of the car up then once the wheel is off the ground put 1 hand at the top of the wheel in the centre the other hand on the bottom rock wheel forwards with the top hand and pull back with the bottom

    if there is any play in it then its your ball joint 9times out of ten

    then try holding the wheel i hand left side in the centre other hand right side in the centre

    rock wheel again if theres any play from this could be track rod end or wheel bearing

    if u try both of these and either gives u play in the wheel then u have a problem

    if its not something u think u can do yourself then consult a mechanic

    hope this helps:)

    does it happen in straight lines or when cornering what type of noise?

    whurring,clicking or metal to metal?

    does the wheel feel like its going to buckle under the car when turning?
