Check Four Things:

  1. Tires, Balance, and Alignment ($100)
  2. Tie Rods, Stabilizers, and Struts (known to be bad)(do the work your self) ($1,200)
  3. Rack and Pinion (know to be bad) ($1,500)
  4. Axle / CV Joints (High mileage 100,000+) ($900)
Good Luck I have done all three according to the dealerships suggestion, It solved some of it. Do it yourself buy harbor freight tools, rent some from Advanced Auto. Then buy your parts from NAPA which are better than originals it will save you $500-1,000. Or just Sell it to a scrape yard.

Have your cv joints and wheel barings checked. I would suspect an inner cv joint. Let me know MrRodneyLong@gmail.com

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

Vibration between 55 and 62 mph


Check wheel bearings on all four corners and check front ball joints and tie rod ends for play.
