Does the vehicle have shocks or struts
That's your upper control arm bushings, most likely. You can replace the bushings yourself as I have done, but you're most likely better off replacing the whole control arm. They're cheap and save time. Oh, BTW, don't forget to pre-load them before tightening the pivot points up in the wheel well...put a jack under the rotor or lower ball joint and lift to max height, then torque the pivot bolts and nuts as tight as you can get, they don't slip.
