Uh oh...

Driving today with the radio off listening to the nice sound the exhaust makes...and I realized something. There is a clicking/slight clunking coming from the right front wheel, mostly noticeable at low speeds as at higher speeds the clicking becomes more frequent to the point of being one solid sound. My best and only guess is u-joint... But I know next to nothing about axle and steering mechanics, so can anyone give a guess as to what it might be, and how to fix it?

94 2.5L 5 speed

Sounds like a wheel joint to me. Here's a good write up on replacement:

Well, thank you very much. While I don't really understand some of the stuff in that, with closer inspection I can probably figure it out. Might pick up a u-joint tool from harbor freight too...looks easier than a hammer and sockets would be...
