Sounds like a ball joint going away.....specifically a lower joint since the upper joint carries no weight.
Sneak a floor jack under the control arm next to the tire and lift it enouph for the tire to come off the ground. Doing this unloads the ball joint.
See if the sound changes or disappears.
If it does, lower ball joints are in your future.

If it is still there, then a tie rod could be dried out and need replacement.
