Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book

SOURCE: starter is shot
The starter is located at the rear of the engine I believe on the passenger side bolted into the bell housing. First you need to remove the cables from the starter. Make sure you remember where they go so you can connect the new starter correctly. Make a picture or do like I do and take a photo to refer back to if you get lost. Next there are large blots securing the starter to the bell housing that need to be removed. Take out the bottom one first than the top. With all the above done the starter will drop out.

If you unscrew the black pieces around the posts, lift them up and pull back gently on the seat material. There are 2 wire clamps around each post. Simply use a flathead screw driver and stretch the clamp to release the headrest.
