It only has lower ball joints. This is a McPherson strut suspension, not a double wishbone like a Honda, or a Miata.

You'd check this by using a pry bar between the control arm and the bottom of the strut or knuckle. If there's any perceptible play, it's bad. Leaking grease or a torn boot would also be indicative of a failure. One or more failed ball joints could definitely be the cause of your squirrelly handling.
