    Chock the wheels, raise the front and set it on stands.
    Check the ball joints and wheel bearings.
    With the wheel off the ground grab the top and bottom and see if there is any movement. If there is check to be sure if it is bearings or joints.
    Be sure to inspect all of the steering and suspension.
    Once it is all repaired and tight you can center the wheel by adjusting the drag link.

    Yeah they make this special tool that is used to adjust the drag link you cant do it with pliers very easy(been there done that) I think you can get them at any auto parts store.

    i can adjust my drag link by hand, if and or when you have it all apart use never-cease as long as the bolts are tight it wont go anywhere when u are done with adjustment... tires might be out of balance? good luck
