Question about 1998 Volvo V70
I own a 2001 volvo v70. I noticed a bolt that came out from under the front passenger side of the car. A repair shop tightened it for me. Said it held the front suspension to the chassie. The tightening fixed some rattling I had in the front of the car. Now, however the car shakes everytime I step on the gas. I had the shop replaice the inner tie rod ends this did not help. Now they say I need new lower control arms. Is this correct and why does it not shake when I coast only when I accelerate?
When you accelerate the torque(twisting motion)is lifting the front of the car(hence wheelspin), taking the weight off the lower control arms(no weight = more movement)so when you coast, the full front end weight is on the front suspension = no shake....
