My culprit turned out to be a busted upper strut mount. I did some research and found that the upper strut mount is common to blow on these things.

To me yours sounds like either a control arm ball joint, and upper strut Mount. Try the upper strut mount first.
This sounds like a very plausible cause as well.

Used to have, and will always regret selling, 1970 Mach 1.
