Question about 1992 Dodge Spirit

Thumping, and steering wheel dipping hard right

I have a thumping sound on the passenger side, seems to be coming from the front wheel on that side, and it causes the steering wheel to dip HARD to the right at low speeds. once you reach 30 or so mph, it smooths out. had the ball joint on that side replaced 5 months ago due to failure. any idea on the cause?

Thumping in front end, host of other issues

The thumping sound like the U-joints in the front wheels are bad. If the brakes lock with ABS sytem, then one or more wheel sensors are probably bad. As for the RPM's, one of the intake air sensors may be bad, either the IAT or MASS sensor. Hope this helps
