Morning guys, I'm having some suspension problems, I'll provide as much info as I can. The front drivers side tire sounds like the tire is out of balance, I can swap the tires out as much as I want and the sound doesnt go away, also when I go over bumps I can hear a wobble sound from the front end and will pop occasionally when going over an uneven surface. I'm thinking upper and lower control arms and maybe a wheel hub bearing or maybe it's the sway bar endlinks? Thanks in advance

Yup, or all of the above. Tie rod, bad strut, lca bushing, sway bar link, swaybar bushing. Put it up on a hoist and check everything.

They are a good car and cheap to run but eventually need maintenance. I would guess lower control arm pancake bushing.
