    What year? Does it have air suspension? Is the back low enough that it's actually making contact with the tires?

2007 ford sport trac at high speeds it feels like my front end is walking all over the road but no shimmy in my steering wheel and goes straight tires look ok rotated tires problem still there.


could be from worn tie rod ends, suspension ball joints , worn suspension rubbers and failing shock absorbers
take it to an accredited suspension service center for a complete check including the rear end as the front floating sensation could be from a problem rear end suspension set up and shock absorbers
I am well aware that every tire shop says rotate tires but in reality you just move a problem tire from one corner to the other, fail to see a wear problem develop in the tires ( indicates alignment or tire case problem) and costs 4 tires at a time instead of 2 which is not really economical as well
consider this front drive cars wear out front tires at the rate of 3 to rear tires 1 and I think you get the picture (rear drive cars rear tires 2 to front 1) or if there is a case problem with a tire it is lost in the rotation process and becomes dangerous on the road

I feel unstable going at moderate speed around a corner. it doesnt feel like it hugs the road. is this because it is base GXE model?


in stability in corners can be from several reasons
The first is the quality of tires in use as all stability feelings are generated by the tire profile, tire pressure and side wall profile and the quality of the tire (for example a 195 -75 r15 tire will feel loose compared to a 195-25r15 tire which has small side wall dimension and so sits better in the corners )
Next is the condition of the shock absorber, worn out , old or not of good quality manufacturer ( shock absorbers are design to take the rebound out of springs and suspension movement and if they are of inferior quality or worn out , instead of allowing the body to roll slowly , it feels like it will fall over )
Next is the use of a stabilizer bar front and rear as this is what keeps the car feeling level on the road when cornering ( if the stabilizer bar is too thin in section it torques to easily and the movement of the center of gravity is not properly controlled and so the body leans too much instead of sitting flat)
Suspension parts , ball joints , struts , steering rod ends , bad rubbers all add to a bad feeling
another reason could be a wheel alignment or loose wheel bearings ( steering tends to dart and feel out of control when cornering)
Many cars are designed with "soft" suspension to enhance the driving experience but this type of suspension will give the feeling of uncertainty when cornering ( like being on a water filled mattress)
To get a cost of the suspension up grade you first have to know what is the reason for the bad feeling
I would suggest a full safety inspection by an accredited specialist suspension shop ( Pedders or the like ) and then a quote on the modifications that will improve drivability and cornering
a job done professionally will be a safe and legal job

Right rear stands higher than the left side. Is


This is more likely to be a snapped or damaged spring.
Get it checked out immediately by a qualified mechanic, as it can be very dangerous. If it is a snapped coil spring, it could fall out completely when going over a big bump.

Right front shock gone car sitting down against 20" tires how can I tow to shop? tried a flat bed but front bumper touching bed and tires really scrubbing i trying to drive


A failed shock will not cause this (except maybe some off road air shocks). A collapsed suspension like that is due to a broken spring or separated suspension joint. Sorry, you can't drive it, towing is needed.

I dont know how much it would cost but it sounds like you have a suspension issue. Shocks and springs could be shot. I would suggest having an auto mechanic look at it.

Does anyone have diagrams for the rear suspension for a 2007 Lincoln Navigator ?? I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem with my Navigator; the rear of the truck is almost touching the...


don live in the real world, that suspension is never going to work right again. you are going to spend a ton of money, and no matter what you do something else will go wrong. big mercs, lincolns, BMW, caddies, land rovers, etc all sit in the same saggy swamp. there are still thousands of collapsed Peugeots sitting in barns since the 1970s across the land waiting for a real suspension fix.

take a long look at www.strutmasters.com and consider junking the air or hydraulic suspension system and trading up to a real one with springs and shocks.

Hit on right rear at wheel well, wheel pushed in at top what could be the problem?????thanksComment posted on May 11, 2200+9-


I don't understand your question fully (Hit?). If you were involved and a collision and your tire rubs on the fender, get the fender fixed ASAP! Tires can get peeled like a banana if they come into contact with any sharp piece of metal, and if its rubbing on the inner fender, then friction heat caused by this can cause the tire become weak in that area and subsequently blow out.... If that is not the problem, or case then her are more causes for tires rubbing...

Tires "Out of Alignment", non-factory rims and/or tires, wrong size,width, rim "off-set" etc., suspension coil springs and. or shocks (car sitting lower than usual), twisted chassis due to accident or other impacts

Noise from rear


This might be your muffler or something loose with the rear differential. What type of noise is it? metallic? Check your spare tire where it sits. Could be something loose around that, like a bolt or a screw jumping around on the bumps.
LEt me know if this helps.
