    why are you so certain it's suspension related? how are the tire pressures? do you recall hitting anything (pothole,curb,etc.) that may have led to this condition? seems like an interesting issue, I'd like to help.

Could be a brake issue (have you changed your brake pads in a while?)

Could be an alignment issue. (Have you put new tires or shocks on recently?)

Could also be a tire inflation issue.

Wobble at front of car between 20 & 40 on accelleration only


check your suspension sys. tie rods and idler arms ball joints.

  1. block rear wheels in park parking brake on
  2. jack up and support car so that the front wheels are about 1 inch off the ground.
  3. look over and vigorously push and pull on parts. look for loose parts.
  4. grab the top of the wheel are try to wiggle back and fourth. it should not wiggle. if it do'es then your wheel bearings under the center cap on wheel are lose and need repacking and tighten, then back off 1/4 turn and insert cotter pin.
  5. any movement in steering or suspension or something doesn't look right. have it checked
  6. hope this helps mike

Keep pulling when i press the gas


If the wheel alignment has been done recently and you haven't hit any major pot holes/curbs check tire pressure first to make sure all are even. You may have a bad tire causing the pull as well. You can rotate the front tires to the back and retest for the pull.If pull is still present, you may have a torque steer issue or steering/suspension problem. Has the ride height been modified? Check font end components ( tie rods/ball joints/control arm bushings for wear ). Make sure you are using a flat road surface to determine the pull. Most engineers design the road crown for water to flow off on the right side so the vehicle will always want to go to the right slightly. Keep this in mind

On my 1998 ford contour every time i put on the brakes car pulls to the right i have changed rotors pads calipers and bled the lines can anyone help me out pleassssse


I would start by checking the suspension. There is most likely some play in a control arm bushing, ball joint, or tie rod or something. Worn suspension parts can cause this and they will pull to the side that has a problem, if it pulls right, the bad part will be on the right. My guess is it's a worn control arm bushing.

My Lincoln 2002 LS suddenly pulles to the right like some one turned the steering wheel at highway speed. obviously its very dangerous,thank you,Eric


Somethjng is not right with the front suspension of you car. Might be a bent part, something is wear out, or loose. This is dangerous and your tire will create bias, so will cost you more. This car needs a front suspension inspection, and alignment check. We do this service at our dealership 4 wheel alignment $75. GM charge $75 for front wheel alignment, parts extra. Any suspension repair shop can give you a good answer.

Whenever i hit a bump large or small on the right front of the car the stering wheel shakes and sometimes pulls hard to the right what could cause that?


Check you suspension/steering components. Something is damaged or worn out. Any minor (or major) accidents recently? Big pot hole, slid off the road, went over a curb, etc? Something may be damaged from one of these incidents. Are you the only one to drive the Murano? I ask, because I have seen people swear that they never had an minor mishaps, only to discover Jr. took the car out off-roading, and bent the heck out of the lower control arm when he hit a rock. No damage evident until it was checked for alignment, which was way out of whack. Drive the car up on ramps and look very closely for any scrapes, dents, bends, etc. It is most likely a suspension component that needs to be replaced. Let me know what you find. Good luck!

The check suspension light came on. I have noticed that the vehicle is sitting uneven after the airbags deflate once the vehicle is turned off. Lately the vehicle also seems to not have an airbag inflating...


Definitely sounds like there is a leak in your air suspension somewhere. I'd have a local shop check it out. There is a switch for the air suspension either underneath the glovebox right hand side of firewall. or in the back of the vehicle behind the left panel. it is labeled suspension

On turning right I hear a sound that sounds like something hitting the under carriage,but I know it isn't since I keep hearing it once in a while and now more frequently when I turn right.


Either something is rolling around under the seats or the muffler has come loose and is hitting the chassis or worse case is that the suspension is worn and what you hear is metal on metal instead of metal inside rubber

My 79 vette tends to pull to the right while im driving at highwa


What is "y speed???" I can't understand that part...
You problem may have a bit to do with the posi unit (differential) Try doing a "burnout" then take a good look at the tracks (footprint) you made. If one is substantially longer than the other, posi plates on one side may have either failed or are sticking. Also, try adding some positive caster (2-3degrees) to both front wheels...this helps keep the car going in a straight line. If you drive it really hard, you also may want to look into changing from rubber stock suspension bushings to something a bit harder....gives a harsher ride but keeps stuff from "wrapping up" under load.
