1993 Ford Escort Question: Thumping

As of about 3 weeks ago my 1993 Ford Escort started making a thumping sound whenever I drive it. It feels like something is stuck on one of the tires, but there is nothing at all on my tires. It is stronger on the driver side. Has anyone ever had this happen to them, and if so---what did you do to correct the problem? Thanks in advance-----------MV

    If it feels like it is coming from the front, it could be a bad CV joint on one of your axles. As your axle rotates it will wobble. Do your ever hear a clicking sound when making turns? (Another sign of a bad CV joint )
