    Ball Joint, Steering rack suspension? Whatever it is it sounds dangerous and you should take it in to get it looked at and not drive the car!

    the strut bearings can "bind" , the steering rack can loosen at it's mountings .....
    open the hood , have someone turn the steering wheel as you describe and take a careful look before going any further.
