click on this to make it bigger, then this is the tie rods for steering. Make sure they all are intact and tight, no parts missing etc.

Probably looking at Ball Joints and Control Arm bushings too as old as it is. Tie Rods Ends do make more sense for obvious noises though. If you do a little calling around, many Alignment shops will evaluate your front end for free. 1/2 hour Labor at the most. Don't let it go...it will only get worse (and perhaps dangerous) over time.
