Question Ball joint issues

Hey so I recently had my ball joint break for the second time in the last 4 months. The first time it was on the passenger side and this time on the drivers. I had replaced the passenger side on a few months ago and got new ti rods and got a front end alignment, soon after the drivers side wheel bearing and the ball joint started to go. Ever since I bought the car it has been funny in the frontend it has never felt normal. When you turn corners the wheel seems to want to stay where its at not come like it should and it makes a funny sound sometimes when I turn like a creeky sound..but it comes and goes. Any ideas?

You don't state what kind or year of car you have here, mileage or anything else. Which ball joints, upper, lower, tie rod ends?
Anyway, if you or a previous owner did a lot of driving on rough roads, the ball joints could fail prematurely.
You should have the whole front end inspected carefully. If the car has seen some rough service, then any or all the front end components could be badly beaten up.
Losing the steering can mess up your whole day.
