Default What is wrong with my steering?

I have had a problem with my steering for a while that is getting worst. Its seems to over steer. For example, if I were driving about 65mph, on an expressway, and there is a slight curve to the left, as I turn the steering would feel as if it popped out of place, and then pops back in when I turn the wheel back. Its only does it when bearing left. And when I turn slowly, or go over a bump, i can feel and hear all sorts of pop sounds from the front end. The feeling when going fast is that you have to almost pull the wheel back a little to keep in the right direction. Anyone ever heard of this? Does it sound like a bad ball joint?

Stinks of ball joints from here, perhaps loose tie rod end too.

Haven't gotten it fixed yet. I thought it could be ball joints too. I am going to take it somewhere. I just wanted to have some clue what I was talking about when I did. Hopefully its nothing too costly. I just spent a lot on a Tcc solenoid :(
