Depends on how much needs to be replaced. I had my front end done last month at NTB Woodlands, TX. I had shocks, struts, ball joints (everything but tie rods) $1200.00. Mine is a 1997 Towncar. The tie rods were fine. I also put Michelins back on the car and it changed the ride to almost new and also takes the strain off the front end. I will never buy different tires again. The other tires were hard and actually caused wear and tear on the front end. Do some research and you will find alot of information. Cathy (Spring TX)

2007 ford sport trac at high speeds it feels like my front end is walking all over the road but no shimmy in my steering wheel and goes straight tires look ok rotated tires problem still there.


could be from worn tie rod ends, suspension ball joints , worn suspension rubbers and failing shock absorbers
take it to an accredited suspension service center for a complete check including the rear end as the front floating sensation could be from a problem rear end suspension set up and shock absorbers
I am well aware that every tire shop says rotate tires but in reality you just move a problem tire from one corner to the other, fail to see a wear problem develop in the tires ( indicates alignment or tire case problem) and costs 4 tires at a time instead of 2 which is not really economical as well
consider this front drive cars wear out front tires at the rate of 3 to rear tires 1 and I think you get the picture (rear drive cars rear tires 2 to front 1) or if there is a case problem with a tire it is lost in the rotation process and becomes dangerous on the road

Noisy front suspension

Front right wheel alignment


Have a front end safety check done first and repair / replace faulty units . Have a wheel alignment done but have them check the rear end alignment first as it affects the front settings. Worn bushes in the suspension arms allow the rear end to run side ways to the front.

Something is wrong with the front end. Bring it in for a front end alignment (that could be all it needs) and have them check for problems with front end suspension components. There may be something that is worn out ( such as ball joints, or tie rod ends) that is causing the uneven tire wear. There may also be a problem from hitting a large pot hole, or curb, which bent something causing this. Tell the shop to NOT align the front end if they find that some components need to be replaced, as when something is replaced, you should have the front end aligned, and you don't want to have it done twice.

FRONT END SQWEAL AND MAKES NOISES


Yep....agreed. Ball joints are bad....if you had done maintenance on the front end steering or suspension system, you need a front end alignment. But, you definitely have issues with the suspension system.

Tierod, ball joints, struts....could be a lot of things.

Let us know what has been done to the front end.

Yes, depending on what specific components on your front end were damaged and in need of replacement the cost could easily be $500.
