Clunking sound when turning?

For about a month now I've been noticing a popping clunking sound* when I turn to the right at slow speeds. Today I finally was able to get the car up and remove the wheel and I noticed the tie rod end balljoint failing. Could this be the issue? Any help would be appreciated. Luckily I don't drive it much since I ride my ninja most of the time.

If that's not the source of the clunk, it still needs attention.
With the car in the air, is there any play in the wheel, either up-down, left-right or in-out?

I know, that definitely needs attention. No play in the wheels. I was thinking wheel bearings as well, but they seems to be fine. Hopefully replacing the balljoints will do the trick.
