I replaced the ball joints, tie rod ends, drag link ends, and track bar, and the DW went away.
I think if you replace just one of these, you may buys some time, but may end up having to go back in there to replace the others as it is likely the DW would return.
The job itself was not that hard.

I agree with this also, I currently have hubs that are just starting to go bad, possibly BJs as well, and one upper CA bushing that is absolute toast...I have very similar symptoms to the OP but to a much much lesser degree....if the stars align just right, I can get a full blown DW, super super rare, everything has to be perfect.....but normally it's just the occasional shopping cart wheel when hitting certain bumps.
