My first reaction is the CV joint. Sometimes the accordion boot on the front drive axle tears or gets brittle with age and dirt, grit, etc get in there and destroy the joint. And joints just wear out too. If you're handy with tools it is a DIY job. If it is indeed the CV joint, best just to get a rebuilt drive axle with new inner and outer CV joints; they are typically $125 - $250 depending on make/model. There's an axle shaft on each side, so you'll need to figure out which side is shot - roll down the windows and see if you can tell which side it's coming from. Hope this helps and good luck!
