hi, this is netta, i'm thinking a ball joint, cause when i drive i hear a kind of knocking sound or the tire rod ends, i can steer the car, mind you i steered the car about 2 miles back home and made a half turn in the street so i could back down the street backwards to park. the tire is still up but leaning outward to the street from the right front side
the wheel on the right front tire. on 1991 Chevrolet Corsica

I'd recommend getting in to a shop right away. You're going to damage additional components and ruin your tire if you keep driving it like that.
i was driving my car and i heard a noise like a spring, or something and i stopped the car to see if i had hit something, but the tire is not flat, the tire is still full , but hear this ruff noise...
