Can be any number of things in the front suspension. Wheel bearings, struts, bushings, tie rod ends or CV joints need replacement. My bet is tie rod ends, a cheap fix but you will require an alignment after replacement. Best bet is to take it into the garage and have them inspect and repair, the longer you wait the worse it will get.
