Raise car put on stands, grasp tire and push/pull both horizontally and vertically, you are looking for any movement, which would indicate a bearing, ball joint, tie rod, or bushing problem. Do this on both wheels.
Also inspect the CV boots on the other axle, look for rips/tears in the boot (inner and outer) and any lubricant leaking from boots.
Also inspect the brakes, make sure calipers bolts are tight as well as bracket is tight.
