I have a 2005 chevy equinox, the right front wheel is jumping some what, my mechanic @ big o tires claims theres nothing wrong. but when I hit bumps or the road markers when changing lanes, it feels like...

I suggest having the full suspension validated at a dealer including the anti-sway assembly.
After so many years, the front struts / rear shocks are probably in need of replacement and those the the components that are primarily responsible to dampen wheel instability. I replaced mine at 160k miles and the returned control with the new struts was incredible.
Testing struts is not as simple as bouncing the car up and down as some may have you believe.
There are many good mechanics out there, many not so good, which is why I go to the dealer for the most obscure type of diagnosis. The resource of direct link, dealer service center to the factory is valuable in these instances.

Replacing a hatch strut

Don't pay the dealer to doit, this takes about five minutes and is very basic.

First prop the hatch up, the closer to full open the better.

Second, locate the spring retaining clip at each end of the strut.

Third, with a small point, flat blade screw driver, carefully pry the spring retaining clip loose from the strut end. It actually kinda slides in a groove until it's free of the strut end. Repeat for the other end of the strut.

Forth remove the strut from the vehicle.

Now you can install the replacement strut. Installation is reverse of removal; you should start with the retaining clips pulled back from the strut ends. attach one end, secure the retaining clip, then adjust the length of the strut and the height of the door until you can attatch the other end. I found that securing the bottom end of the strut to the body first made it easier to attach the top, instead of the other way around.

Also, a good place to look for parts is; best prices on new dealer, OEM parts as I have found anywhere.
