Sounds like it's on the verge of failure. I wouldn't drive it until it's fixed. We've all seen the damage caused by a failed lower ball joint: a busted fender and CV shaft. I've never had it happen, but I would imagine that loosing control of a front wheel would be pretty scary and potentially dangerous.While I had it jacked up - checked my passenger side Lower Ball joint. Been hearing a bit of a clunk and feeling a little steering movement there so replacing it has been on the books for a bit. Yep - it's bad - real bad - I guess that job just moved up the list. I'll need to push on my son to get some of his projects done and out of my garage so I can get the Accord in. Don't want to be doing a LBJ out in the driveway in the snow and slush.
edit: here's today's example from a FB group
