Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille
Problem began with left front separating tire. Tires replaced with new. Front end still waddling some. Left front tire balanced and problem dissipated some. Problem showed up again. Had car safety inspected, It passed while the front end was waddling at slow speeds 8 mph to 28 mph. Had front end evaluated and left fron tire was re-balanced. Slight vibration noticed following balancing. Took the vehicle back for further evaluation, 3 techs at Big O Tire stated all 4 tires were balanced at 0. They stated I should see a transmission shop to evaluate cv axel?????? This vehicle has been driven gingerly, original owner, has 52,000 original miles on it. At nearly 35,000 miles I noticed the front end made some noise when turning right or leftcorners at slow speeds. Of course Cadillac techs could not find anything wrong with it under waranty. Could this be an exention of that problem. The front end of this Cad is heavy and care at every dip is taken. It is the only thing I do not particularly like about it. Otherwise it has been a good vehicle. Does anyone out there know of other problems with the '96 Cad. Deville that seems to be a flaw in the design or maintainence? Is there a web sight for this info that is good to review?
It sounds like you may have a bad set of wheel bearings on one side or the other.which would mean you have a bad cv joint or one that is going bad. you may want to try to figure out which side the wobble is on and inspect that side.i suspect its going to be the side where you had the problem with the tire.
