Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Ford F250 4WD. Wheels will start to veer to different sides, with a catch, and the steering wheel has great difficulty keeping them under control. A loud pop, while stopped and turning tires left to right repeatedly, fixes it for a short time but quickly returns within the following day or two. Recently replaced ball joints and tires and still having the problem. Sometimes the resulting shaking can be so bad that we literally have to pull over because the front end shakes and shimmies violently. When the issue is not present the truck runs fine. Does anyone have any ideas of what this could be?
Have a front end suspension check done to eliminate any worm ball joints -shockies- worn suspension rubbers-- steering problems. If ok have a wheel alignment done and have the rear end aligned first as it affects the front alignment. The violent wobble is castor wobble and indicates negative castor possible from sagging suspension springs. The camber is out at that results in the car following every dip in the road. The camber has to work in conjunction with the toe-in measurement and if the 2 are not correct then you will have problems.

Testimonial: "Thanks Bill. It is going in the shop today."
The steering wheel is something which sometimes shakes at high speeds around 70 miles per hour. It does not happens all the time but, Some time when the one is driving at 70, I will not possess any shakes. some day it shakes badly at the same speed. So, its not continuous it merely depends upon the state of the Wheel.
