Question about 2001 Ford Focus
When going around a left hand curve in the road at normal speeds I get a back and forth wiggle, along with a pulsing kind of sound when going straight. Now alot of people will say 'tires' but I've just bought new steel rims and put on some very lightly used Goodyear 'Integrity' balanced and at 34psi-x4. My unknowing guess might be wheel bearing or something CV jointish, am I even close..? And the left hand curve wiggle means... which side would I want to check..?
Thank you ahead of time ..for your time.
First just take a quick look at the c/v joint boots. If one is torn or otherwise compromised, likely there is a problem there. It also does not hurt to check that the tires are running true, and are properly fastened to the hubs. Just jack each front wheel off the ground and while looking past the side and bottom of the tire at a a fixed object, turn the wheel and see if at any point part of the tire suddenly obstructs your view. If both tires and joints are OK, I'd suspect the bearing on the left side, but check both.
