There are several parts of the steering which can cause a problem such as your describing....If your vehicle is fitted with a steering damper that would be the first thing to have checked....Tie rods and particulally tie rod ends....Ball joints can also be worn out, causing an unpredictable and eratic steering behaviour.....I would also have the shock absorbers checked too....The fault you're reporting is a dangerous fault, so plaese have it checked as soon as you can and don't use the vehicle until its been repaired....Regrds Johngee

Looking at what could cause the rear of the car to wiggle side to side when accelerating from 0 to 25 mph? the wheels do not look like they are wobbling when driving down the road! tire belts bad?


Tires...rear suspension...rear alignment - in that order. I had a car with a really bad rear alignment that hop sideways every time you went over a bump in the road.

How can i tell if the ball joints are bad on a


you have to jack up the lower control arm out by the wheel then using a bar pry up on the wheel there should be very little if any play then grab the top and bottom of the wheel and try to move the wheel back and forth there should be no movement at all. the up and down movement is measured in thousands of an inch.

Had shocks replaced at a ntb service center all four of them, also four new tires now the ride is not smooth as before,plese help


Tire centers tend to over inflate tires. You probably have become accustomed to a softer ride. Try lowering tire pressures a couple of PSI but be careful, to low a pressure will affect handling. The factory tire pressures are in your drivers door sticker.

RATTLING NOISE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT TIRE


The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.

2004 dodge ram 4x4 front end shaking problems when we hit a bump...replaced the front wheel bearings,upper/lower ball joints,steering damper!!! any ideas


Could possibly need the steering box adjusted. It might be a little loose. And tire balance usually makes it shimmy. Could have a broken belt in one of the tires. Jack up the wheel and spin the tire and check the run out. (look for a wiggle when spinning the tire).

Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.


Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.
