truck vibrates when turning corners

i have a 2001 ford ranger 3.0. when i go around corners (left and right) the truck vibrates, not horribly but it gets your attention. does anyone have any ideas what it could be, my first thought was ball joints or tie rods but im not for sure. it is coming from the front and it only does it when im moving. please help if you can

thanks,
sniksoh

Check the sticker on the drivers side door jam for the axle code.
If it has a limited slip rear end , the clutch pack may be hanging up , locking the rear wheels together when cornering.That can transmit vibration to the front.
