2003 mercury sable. rattle noise on rough road. Sounds like front wheel loose.Jacked up can shake left wheel looks like loose at cv joint. Is this needing replaced? Can I do it ?

loose wheel not caused by cv joints. More likely ball joint or tie rod end. Usually need a lift to do this kind of work. If cv boot is torn open, replace axle as well. If you haven't done this kind of work before, recommend you get some help from someone that has done it.
