The solution on my car was the outer ball joint on the Control Arms. The ball joint was bad but the entire arm needed to be replaced. I also had the symptoms during hot dry weather and had no symptoms during wet cold weather or over the winter months.

The other possible cause was said to be the strut mount upper seals. The seal is like $2.00 but the labor to replace the seals involves removing the struts and shocks and suspension parts.
