who knows? take it to a mechanic and find out. I am pretty sure that you learned your lesson last time.
You shouldn't ignore the noises your car makes, because its usually an indication that something is wrong.

is the boot on either upper or lower ripped? Check the tie rod, see if it has any play in it or if its boot is ripped.

Looking at the ball joint isn't enough. You have to check for play..

I agree, and sometimes when they're worn out they don't look like anything is wrong.
