This is not likely to be a do-it-yourselfer project. You don't even know what the cause is yet. Many suspension parts require special tools and special procedures to prevent other damage. At the very least you need to have the car inspected at a tire and alignment shop to find the source of the noise, then we can figure out if it's something you can handle yourself.
