WHAT IS SUSPENSION JOINT NEARSIDE FRONT OUTER?

2001 Renault Laguna • 88,500 miles

My 2001 renault laguna estate 1.8 petrol failed mot. It says on the notification of refusal letter, 804: suspension: suspension joint- movement excessive- nearside front, outer. Is that the bottom ball joint connecting the strut to the suspension/wheel assembly?

thanks for the help

Sure sounds like it. If you jack up wheel and pull tire from top and bottom it should have NO play. Side to side can indicate steering rod/rack play.
