Start by checking the front end steering/suspension components:
Raise car, put on stands. Grasp tire and push/pull both horizontally and vertically, if any movement then possible wheel bearing, ball joint, tie rod, control arm bushing.
Check CV boots for any signs of leakage or cuts/rips in rubber boot.
If everything is OK, then the steering column will have to be removed and inspected.
