Jack up the front end and check for play on your front wheels. Check for any slop, side to side, top bottom, and rotating.

ok so we determined that you can handle jacking up your car than.
once you do that take hold of your front tire and see if the wheel has play by shaking it back and forth and from side to side.
So does your steering wheel shake from side to side when you hit the brakes?
Since you know how to replace a tie rod than you would probably be able to replace a ball joint. If thats what you find to be the shake in your wheel.

Sounds like one of your sway bar 'end links' is broken off. Its a common problem. But can be fixed inexpensively
