95 ford taurus. My car wobbles between 45-60 mph. Now a clunking from right side when driving over uneven road or bumps. I believe its the back tire. Any ideas on what it could be?

Not out of the questions being the back but unlikely. I would check the tie rods. Sounds like it is time to change them.

yes make sure your lug nuts are all tight and the wheels are seated properly on the hubs, if they are tight bring the car to a tire shop and have them balance the two front tires, this will tell you if you have a bent wheel please rate -jeff

HI, i would inspect the strut assembly for loose structure asap. i would also inspect the wheel knuckle and rotor and tie rod ends for loose fit as well. inspect thoroughly.

Its most likely the CV-joint assembly. the boot may have slipped off, allowing the joint assembly to dry up. i advise to inspect all the above before looking at the CV-half joint assembly and boot.

SOURCE: 03 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab 4x4 Death Wobble at around 70 mph???

I have a 2004 with the same problem. It is actually a defect on dodges behave. The steering box flexes on the frame when you hit a bump. Bd diesel puts out a steering box brace and a new track bar with the right geometry to fix it. I had replaced everything under my front end before i saw the article in off road adventures magazine. I contacted dodge and asked why this was not a safety recall. They said they no nothing about it and refused to help me. I called the National Highway Transportation Safety Board and filed a complaint. I suggest you do the same and anyone else who reads this. If you need to contact me email me at kazi94@mailcity.com. maybe we can get enough people to complain before someone dies from this.

Looking at what could cause the rear of the car to wiggle side to side when accelerating from 0 to 25 mph? the wheels do not look like they are wobbling when driving down the road! tire belts bad?


Tires...rear suspension...rear alignment - in that order. I had a car with a really bad rear alignment that hop sideways every time you went over a bump in the road.

How can i tell if the ball joints are bad on a


you have to jack up the lower control arm out by the wheel then using a bar pry up on the wheel there should be very little if any play then grab the top and bottom of the wheel and try to move the wheel back and forth there should be no movement at all. the up and down movement is measured in thousands of an inch.

My car started clunking in the rear near the tire, especially when I turn left


Check your top shock absorber and/or strut mounts, they may have been hammered by the many bumps and stripped out the mounting hardware on top just an eighth of an inch which will cause super loud bangs as that side wobbles up and down and hits into the Body Metal. These can get dangerous if left loose at all, my old boss said his Taurus would change lanes by itself at 120 Km/hr in the rain!

I have a mercedes 2004 e500 when i drive and hit the slightest bump in the road there is a clunking noise coming from drivers side front


Hello, that could be one of several things. It could be a worn out bushing, sway bar link, or your strut assembly itself. With the nose of the car raised off the ground, wiggle the front tires. If there is excessive wobble it is likely to be one of the suspension components.

2001 Tarus clunking sound


very common problem is the sway bay end links that attach to the strut from the sway bar. They sound like a light chuckling knock over bumps. The bushings that hold the subframe up wear or the bolts loosed due to the bushings wearing. usually the rear ones The bushings are 2 piece ,upper and lower Tighten with 18mm socket

2001 Ford Taurus rear end bounces/slips off to side slightly


This is most likly a low RR tire. Check the tire pressure first. If that is OK, I would slowly drive to somone qualified to examine the rear suspention to see what might have broken.
good luck
