If you search around there is a link in one of my posts for a youtube video showing the bad ball joint and attached bushings. I believe its in a "control arm" thread. It clearly shows the movement and worn parts as well as the replacement process.
I am suspecting the banging is more likely the struts all of which are problems with the line of Compasses. But being spring loaded it may be harder to see. By the way it not shaking you do but a slow but forceful twist, left right and top bottom giving delays in this so that it can be observed from under with a light in the hands of an observer.
I have not seen the ball joint listed separately by the way only with the control arm but look at the pivot point of those arms for movement at the bushings since they all are early failure points.
