Look at the ball joints, tie rod ends, controll arm bushings.. Check wheels for run-out. (bent wheel) Balance wheels.

Alignment problem


If the tie rod ends and ball joints need replacing do these first before getting the tracking done. After replacing these don't assume it will correct the alignment automatically as you would have disturbed the settings while changing them so getting the allignment checked after replacing any of those parts is always the best way to go.

What is causing the shaking in the front end and the wearing out the tread on inside of tire. I was told it was either wheel bearing or ball joint


Most likely it is the ball joint and a need for an alignment but it could also be the tie rods. I would look at the tie rods and ball joints. If you have over 100,000 miles on those front struts that could cause the "Toe-In" to be off and bouncing in the front end.

The passenger front tire of my Chrysler 300m wobbles every time I hit a hard bump. Tie Rod maybe? I was told that the Tie Rod on that side was wore when I had new tires put on so that was my guess.


could be tie rod or ball joint or bushing. I would put it on a rack and pull at every joint. You can even check at home by jacking up the wheel and pulling it in each direction. There should not be any play. In/out play at side of wheel is due to tie rods or bushings. In/out play at bottom is due to ball joint.

Sounds like wheels are going to fall off---even more so when i turn


I almost bought a 2000 blazer and you know why I didn't?? Because of the complaints about the front end, one guy said he bought ball joints by the dozen, the truck would eat them up. Tie rod ends by the box. Everything about the front end was bad. Check your ball joints. I ended up with a 2003 Nissan Pathfinder, so far, it has been a great truck.

Has the car been in an accident? You may have to replace the upper ball joints as well. And you will have to get an alignment after that. I would get the tire set correctly before I started changing bearings. Of course it may be that the bearing is so bad that that is what is causing the wheel to lean so badly?
With the car jacked up, can you move the wheel laterally - it should be very tight.
