You may want to start with unhooking and pulling the boot off to see it there is any visual damage under there. If there is damage under there then it will be much easier to begin a diagnostic.

From what you describe it sounds like your inner tie rod is worn and needs replacement, you will also need a wheel alignment after.

07 GT/CS, needs some work
