there could be multiple reasons, check ball joints, tie rod ends, inner tie rod. Suspension and steering parts are usually the first things to go on cars. They wear out even faster if you've lowered the car. Also when one thing goes, it does lead to a chain reaction.
I've had a few thing replaced under warranty, and a few out of pocket. Both front struts and rear shocks replaced due to leaking (before lowered). Ball joints on both sides (before lowered). Tie rod ends (before lowered). Inner tie rods (after lowered). It happens. Pretty soon I'll probably bechanging more suspension parts. If you replace them with better parts, once they are replaced it will be awhile before it wears out again. I've repalced all my steering ans suspension parts so far with moog parts. For a lot of the moog parts the are grease able, and as long as you grease them every once in a while they will last a long time.
