hi, this is a very common problem that all cars eventually get and it is going to be one of a couple of things.
1. the most common fault is the bottom ball joint. These are easy to replace if you have a ball joint splitter and they are cheap to buy, its best to replace both sides as the other one could go soon after.
2. this is the steering rack ball joint their is a rod with a ball joint on at either end of the steering rack this can be tested easy by jacking the car up so front wheels are off the floor then hold the tyre at either side and then sort of wiggle the wheel left and right slightly and youll feel if this is faulty it will have some loose play if feels solid like the wheels are turning normal then the bottom ball joint is the likey problem.
Hope you understand what im telling you if not give me a shout back and ill be glad to help.
Also if you need further assistance then give us a shout.
Hopefully you solve your problem. Either fault is cheap to buy as it is a really common problem so this making them cheaper.
Main dealers will be more expensive but going to a car spares shop that sells everything will be alot cheaper as they use parts that are not genuine but are just as good. Most garages dont buy parts from main dealers as the cost of parts and repair would be to high for customers and they would lose custom. give us a shout back if you have any problems ok

sounds like a tire may have a flat spot on it, causeing it to make a thump noise. the main cause for this is bad shocks or struts on that side.
