Have your ball joints checked. Sounds like your ball joint dust seals have been comprimised and dirt has entered the grease area and displaced the grease. CAUTION !!! Have this checked ASAP!! The longer you wait the more metal wear on the ball joints which could lead to the joint popping out of socket...which means loss of steering due to one of the wheels collasping.
