Sounds more like the lower control arm or tie rods again.
The Caliber/Compass/Patrios have had issues with that lately. I had all of it redone a few weeks ago on my Caliber, and some people on here reported tie rods failing and others (on CaliberForumz) about lower control arms bolts recalls.
I'd go have that checked before it becomes serious and even hazardous.
