Creaking/clunking/banging noises whenever I brake, turn (either direction), or go over a bump coming from the driver side wheel. Feels like wheel is wobbling at slow speeds or braking. Pulls to the left. I'd like to know what this could be, thanks.

Dealer I bought it from years ago said the bushings were bad on it, but I feel like there could be more than that (dealer was kinda... scummy). Has gotten worse over the years (haven't been able to afford a repair yet, but I may soon).
