Serious front tire wear


Most likely tie rods or tie rod ends or ball joints. You need to inspect your steering and suspension to find out.

On the front passenger side, I replaced the ball joint (it was bad), the tie rod (bad) the wheel bearing (bad) and the CV HalfShaft (bad)....yet.... there is STILL shaking on the passenger side of the car....


The new tires could be out of balance,or even though they are new could have a bad belt in one of them,If it was doing this,the problem,if it was there before the tires were installed,have the front end checked.And you may need a front end alignment.If the tie rod,and ball joint were bad on that side,then chances are the other side may have bad front end parts also.You know it needs alignment after replacing tie rod ends don`t you?Eye balling the tie rod end does not get it back in line,and it may have needed the alignment anyway,Have a 4 wheel alignment done to make sure that is out og the equation while diagnosing the problem.

Function of lower Ball Joints and Strut Rod Booshing in 1988Mercu


Ball joints are a serious safety issue, especially if they are making noise. Strut Rod bushings slightly less so. I agree with you, if they are that bad you should have heard your noise before you changed the tires. You didn't sat what kind of noise, but the problems he suggested should make a clunk or snap. Your best bet would be to double check to make sure he properly tightened the wheel nuts when he changed the tires, if you have alloy rims they need to be torqued. If he just put them on with an air gun he may have damaged the rim which could make it break and fall off. And take the car to a repair shop that you trust and have them check your front end. They'll be able to tell you what the tire guy did. Don't put it off because you will find yourself in serious trouble if any of these things are the problem.

Loud thump near front left wheel when turning left


from the left??? passenger or driver side... this maybe a CV boot problem depending on what side you are speaking of. A CV would be the Ujoint for front wheel drives
