2001 SE suspension noise

When I drive above 60 MPH, I feel vibration, and hear rhythmic sound coming from rear driver side wheel.
I jacked the car up, and I can feel something is loose.
When I grab at 3 and 9 and move it side to side, i can hear same sound and feel same amount of movement as when I grab wheel at 12 and 6 and move up and down.
It sounds similar to loose balljoint pop.

What could it be? i need to fix it so it does not eat my tires....

Also, how do I tell which VIN I have? There are two options I can see: VIN 3 or VIN P

Car is 2001 SE with ZETEC, 153 k miles. Tires are all in good condition, one I'm concerned about wears out little more on the outside.

Thanks guys
