It is possible that the ball joint is bad, to check you can jack the wheel up 1/2 off the pavement and use a tire iron to lift up and on the tire and watch the ball joint if it moves up and down thats your problem. from a mechanics point of view I would replace both the top and bottom at the same time as this saves labor since you have to tear it down anyway and the upper ball joint should be worn as well. If the ball joint does not move then put your hands on each side of the tire and move it back and forth, if you get movement you will need to get a second person to move the tire back and forth and watch to see where the play is. normally it will be in the drag link or the control rod, replace items as needed and try for free play again, you may find another bad part as well. normally there is more than on failed part. once you have done the parts replacement you can put a scratch in the tire with a nail on each front tire and then with a tape measure measure the front and back of the front tire you will want to get it toed in 1/8 of an inch then go to a tire shop for a alignment. should be around 58 inch's center so front would be 57 inch's and 15/16 this of an inch and the back would be 58 inch's and 1/16 of an inch. hope this helps. If it does please rate and thanks for using fix-ya.

Changing front axle assembly or wheel hub or both? Either way, need torque specs for all bolts.


you've got a bad axle shaft in the front and possibly a bad bearing in the hub. 4/wheel drive makes the front axle actually work. Theys no real pressure on these shafts when in 2/wheel drive.

Please any suggestion ? 98' V8 5.2 ; Won't turn after highway run ! Either left or right,cranky noise , shaking ,strong vibration from the front wheels.BUT; when is cooling down -after 30 min.


I suggest that you check your front CV joints. It is common for the boots to tear, allowing the grease to leak out. Lack of lubrication, dirt and moisture destroys the joint. You can purchase a remanufactured shaft ready to install at some part stores. I have a '93 Grand Cherokee with 220,000 miles, and over its life, I have replaced both sides twice. Good luck!

2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi


It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.
