1998 s70 wobbles front end at low speeds

My s70 seems to wobble in the front end, can feel it through the steering wheel. Seems worse at low speeds. Could it be an out of balance tire? Ball joints? Also notice wobbling on turns, especially lefts.

Will driveaxels cause a wobble in the front end?


it is possible that a bent shaft or failed cv joints will cause the problem
it depends if the wobble starts at a certain speed and gets worse up to a speed then stops or just gets to the point where steering control is lost
because the bearings have been replace along with tie rod ends I am tempted to consider that the axles are not the problem ( unless the repairs stated were done to fix the wobble ) but the the wheel bearing adjustment is not correct and that the fittment of the tie rod ends has altered the wheel alignment
consider a wheel alignment to correct a castor fault ( wheel wobble) and recheck the correct adjustment of the wheel bearings
if the cv joints are worn , dry ,they can be binding up and not altering angular movement easily which may appear as a wheel wobble

1998 voyager front tires wobble back and forth when jacked up. Is it tie rod or ball bearing?


If it wobbles with your hands at 9 and 3, its a tie rod end.
If it wobbles with your hands at 12 and 6, its a wheel bearing.

My 97 300 Honda Fourtrax 4/4 has a wobble in the steering to it in the front end, it gets worse at higher speeds. Can someone tell me what may be causing it?


check the suspension points and steering ball joints for wear. If you have a steering shock absorber the have it tested. Have a wheel alignment done as it sound like a castor wobble

Steering wheel wobbles when driving slowly and in a straight line


you need to have your tires checked for a slipped belt, also if you get a shake in the steering wheel when you apply the brake you need to have the brake rotors re-surfaced or replaced.

Front end wobble


An easily overlooked problem that can have these symptoms is low tire pressure. Examine your tire for excessive wear or a flat spot. Check your tire pressures. If all this seems fine, rotate your tires to see if that helps the problem. If so, replace the suspect tire.
