I have a 1994 Ford Bronco Xlt with a 302 V8 Automatic.. When the truck was on a lift the front passenger side wheel had alot of negative camber I believe.. The wheel was slanted like this \ . The stearing...


To check the joints jack the wheel off the ground by the lower control arm and putting one hand on the top of the wheel and the other on the bottom try moving the wheel in and out. If you can then one or both ball joints are bad. Have someone move the wheel and watch the joints you will see if one or both are bad. While the wheel is off the ground move the wheel from side to side, that will tell you if you have bad steering linkage. You don't have to hold the steering wheel straight when changing the joints. But you will need an alignment when your done. Note; When installing the new parts try to get them as close to up and down as you can. Also if you change the tie-rods count the turns and install the new tie-rods to the same turns.

How to replace left control arm on 99 mercury cougar


Here's what I found on Yahoo answers:
For the driver's side: yes, you will have to raise the motor.
On all models, remove the front motor mount, Mark the position of the right engine mount, remove 3 right engine to mount bolts. remove one right engine mount to body nut. On all models hold the strut shaft with an 8 mm allen wrench, loosen top retaining nut 5 turns. Raise vehicle, remove ball joint to steering knuckle pinch bolt. seperate control arm ball joints from steering knuckle. Do NOT damage ball joint seal. Remove pinch bolt attaching steering knuckle to strut. Slide steering knuckle up on strut, Move transaxle to gain access to control arm nuts and bolts. remove 2 nuts and bolts and attaching control arm to subframe. Lifting up control arm remove.
Now this to mark the motor mount because you are supposed to use a powertrain alignment guage when putting back together. if not you can bind the motor in the unibody and make for a shaky ride.
that drivers side lower control arm calls for 4.3 hours where as the passenger side calls for 1.3 hours. So you can see what your in for.
BTW these instructions are taken straight from the Ford repair manual.

99 GMC JIMMY. STEERING LOCKS DOWN SOMETIMES AFTER 1/4 TURN OF STEERING WHEEL. CHANGED PS PUMP, CHANGED STEERING GEAR BOX, CHANGED DRAG LINK, CHANGED BALL JOINTS, NO SIGN OF PHYSICAL BINDING WHAT IS...


Could be steering shaft on bottom of column that connects column to gearbox. Rag joint or u-joints on shaft are dry or seized. Try spraying rubber rag joint & u-joints on steering shaft with a good penetrating oil like PB Blaster. Work steering wheel all the way to left,spray, then turn all the way to right & spray some more.

When I was driving my 2006 Ford 500 on high way, the car slips into other lane even I hold the steering handle firmly. It is so dangerous and your help is greatly appreciated


stop driving this vehicle before you kill yourself ! you got something in the steering components that is broken and you will have to raise the vehicle to see what is not right. the parts to inspect are the tie-rod ends, ball joints, pitman arm and such. raise the vehicle so you can see and have someone else turn the steering left and right and see what is loose. it should be easy to spot if your car changes lanes on it's own. once you found the problem, fix it before you kill yourself

Wheel is shaking....


Check the ball joints as well as the steering linkage.
If it is already loose, it needs to be replaced. Just send
your feedback thru the e-mail.
