Check your brake caliper that it is on securely

Check your ball joints also

There are just 2 bolts that hold the caliper on that go in from behind through the spindle

15MM I believe is the size

You dont have to take your wheel off

If you lift it into the air with a lift you could get to it easy.

If you use a jack be sure to to have jack stands with you
