Ball joints though have at least 1/16" to 1/8" of play vertically. I can't tell if there is any play in the uppers, so thrusday night I'm going to replace the lowers and see if that does it.
Look for lateral movement in the ball joints.
Do the dry steering test, and check for movement at either end of the drag link.
In my case the end of the drag link at the pitman was shot. Turns out the other end was shot, too, but I didn't discover that until after I replaced the pitman arm end...
Another thing to pay close attention to is your control arm bushing's. This was pivotal in my case. No pun intended...
Diagnose each joint/connection, then repair or replace if necessary.
