There are realistically about two dozen things that could be deteriorating. You didn't share your mileage, but I'm guessing you're not going to fix it yourself or you'd already know the components that could go wrong. Recommend taking it to a shop with a lift to get it professionally inspected.

Typical items that wear and get loose:

Outer tie rod ends.
Inner tie rod ends
Upper and lower ball joints
Forward and rear upper control arm bushings
Forward and rear lower control arm bushings
upper ball joints
lower ball joints
wheel hub
steering rack

Same list, but now add anti-sway bar bushings and hood stops.

What are you going to do with the list of possibilities?

The vehicle still needs to get onto a lift to wiggle and shake things to find the culprit.

Sounds like a wheel bearing, but it could be other things. But that would be my guess by description of issue. I had them go bad on my Old Rainier at 60,000 miles

In my opinion, EVERY part of the front suspension is serious. Because the cost of a part failure could be death. To you or an innocent bystander.

Perhaps you're hoping it's not too EXPENSIVE.

it's all expensive if you can't diagnose it and repair it yourself or at least have a friend that can help you out.

most brake shop chains will give you a free inspection.
