Could be tie rods, ball joints, wheel bearings. A whole bunch of things are possible. Lift the front off the ground and grab the tire. Wiggle the wheel back and forth and up and down. If you grab the front of the wheel and the back, using the front and the back of the car for my reference. If you can wiggle the wheel a bit in this direction its most likely tie rods. If that feels fine grab the top and bottom of the wheel and give it a wiggle. If this is loose its prolly ball joints. Repeat for both sides. One side might have different issues than the other. If both are nice and tight next I'd carry it to an alignment shop
