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.
Also check fluid level in PS tank. Look for fluid level leaks at PS pressure and return lines and steering rack.
