Check the wheel hub bearing, jack so the wheel is off the ground, if the wheel can be moved in any direction 360 degrees, then the bearing is bad. If the wheel will move by pulling up and down then it's the balljoint, just back and forth, it's ths tierod.

Two new tires front and back, new front springs and seals.Handled like new but once you are above 80 or so you can barely hold it from the wobble as soon as you let off throttle.

Check all your wheel nuts are the correct tightness. Get ALL you wheels re-balanced. If they are ok get the brake discs checked to see if they are warped. Then get the wheel bearings checked for wear. The drive shaft CV joints would be worth checking as well.

I own a 23 Ford t bucket,i had a new front spring and shocks put on and now sometimes when I take off the front wheels start to wobble and I have to slow down for them to stop,what should I have done

first check the lug nuts on the wheels. if tight raise the car and try to turn the tires by hand. if a noise or wobble you have bad suspension parts or loose part.

Wobbles from front

CV joints will usually "pop" when you are turning. Check to see if your lug nuts are tight, check tire tread for any "bubbles" or your tires may need to be balanced

Front driver tire wobbling and very unstable lug nuts are tight

Is there and kind of squeling or grinding noise when the vehicle is driven?
The wheel bearings could have failed and are allowing the tire to wobble.
Is there a lot of play or a clonking noise when the steering is turned from side to side?
You could have a bad steering joint and this is allowing the wheel to wooble.

Left front tire wobbles any ideas on what it is i replaced the axle and now it wobbles

Two options to try first; tire is not on tight, or the ball joint is bad. Either is an easy and cheap fix. Try the tire first, make sure all the lug nuts are tight. If so, it is your ball joint. Imagine a ping pong ball with a screw sticking out of the bottom of it. That is the ball joint. jack up the car, try to wiggle the tire, if the ball joint has a lot of play that if definitely the problem. Not expensive to fix either. If the tire/wheel doesn't go back and forth (has a lot of play) you should take it to a mechanic to see if the tie rods are on correctly. Good Luck!

Whats wrong when my front end has a wobble in a 95 camaro

The first thing I would do is to jack up the car and inspect the lug nuts to make sure they are tight. Then spin the wheels by hand and look to see if the wheel is bent any. If the wheel is bent it will wobble. Next spin it again and make sure the tires don't have any broken belts in them. If you have broken belts it will look like the tire isn't perfectly round, and the tire will wobble while the wheel runs true. On some models that use old style lug nuts they can be installed backwards. If you have what are called acorn lug nuts you can only put them on one way. If you have the old type the angled surface goes in. If these are on backwards the wheel can wobble. If this all checks out you need to look at the steering components, you probably have some worn out parts. For most people the front end inspection should be done professionally. This is because it is beyond the capabilities of most DIY people.

yes make sure your lug nuts are all tight and the wheels are seated properly on the hubs, if they are tight bring the car to a tire shop and have them balance the two front tires, this will tell you if you have a bent wheel please rate -jeff
