Could be a ball joint or it might be the CV axels. It's recommended that you replace the whole A-arm instead of replacing ball joints.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Would also suggest that the engine mounts be given the once over as the culprits.

That was a problem with the 93 and early 94 PGT's. The rear brake calipers would locked up. When I park in gear, I'll put in "R". The reverse gear is the tightest and less likely to jump out of gear.
