The problem is most likely an upper or lower ball joint. These can be diificult to detect whrn not on an alignment rack. You may not be able to detect the slop by hand due to the design.

The upper and lower ball joint appear to be in good condition and the vehicle only has 84000 miles. If so, should I replace both, or could it be the shocks; they're not leaking and their rancho rs5000?
