Hi I am Vortash if the vehicle actually bounces it is pulling against the tracking of the other wheel sounds as if your tracking has been severly compromised damaged suspension or a bent track rod could do this .. as could a damaged wheel bearing or ball joint .. have you hit any large potholes lately or hit a curb .. this may be the cause .. regards vortash

Sounds like a variation of what's known as "death wobble" You need to have everything in the front end checked over carefully for signs of wear. That includes shocks and steering damper (sideways shock on steering linkage) replacing damper will cover up the problem but usually will not cure it, so if you replace it be aware that the problem will usually be back in a week. Most times it is traced to a bad track bar end or mount that has elongated at the differential, or bad ball joints. However,If you have recently had the tires removed for any reason, I would loosen the lugs and re-tighten them in a star pattern, using a torque wrench. I'm pretty sure the setting is 70 lbs, but check that #. don't forget though...I said check everything (including mount for steering box.)

Vibration and pulling to right driving at 60 or over and worsens with increase speed


Hi sounds like your tracking or wheel balancing could even be worn track rod ends or ball joints. If the pulling to right is when you apply the brakes then you may find that the right brake is working and the left is not.

Getting ***** wobbles through the steering wheel. Also a bouncing bad shaking feel once loaded


check the steering for anything that is loose and also check the front tires for a broken belt in the tires. Does it happen when you apply the brakes or as you are driving down the road. If it happens when applying the brakes check the brakes for worn out brake pads. Hope this helps.

What will cause a 2001 mercury cougar to pull hard to the left? We already changed lower ball joints, caliper, bearing hub assembly, and outer tie rods.What's your problem?


Could be air in system and right side not applying brakes. Also the internal rubber in brake line where solid metal line attaches to can deteriorate and form a blockage for brake fluid to not reach caliper on right side.

I have 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 and I cannot drive it more then 50mph on the high way because starts to jump as if I have a flat tire it feels front right side and I have to stop then I can continue...


Typically it sounds like wheel balancing, although the speed at which it starts is just on the low side (normally 60-65 mph), but not impossible, and combine that with shock absorber problems it is quite possible.

Sounds like brakes or wheel bearing, have your brakes check out they'll also be able to check your bearing at the same time.

Car is squealing persistently from rear right tire


Pull the wheel,you will find that the brake pad,or after pulling the drum,the shoes are in bad shpe,if not ,check the wheel bearing,but my bet is the shoes,or pads are bad,do A brake job,it will most likely be the problem.

Front disc brakes


Probably a restriction in the brake line from the master cylinder to the wheel.

Most of the time brake hoses do this (collapsed hose or hose inner liner) but the restriction could be anywhere from the point your front brake pressure divides to both wheels to the caliper of the wheel. The problem is not the caliper itself because the bleeder is able to relieve the pressure.
