wheel bearings should have no play at all The correct adjustment is no preload -no end float with the adjustment nut moved slightly to preload to fit the pin.
It is happening on full lock ,check the full lock stop as the tyre may be hitting on the suspension or inner guard.
Makes and models vary considerably. However there are some things which apply to every unit. First check that your tyres are evenly inflated. If you have even slight slopes the lower side will press into the grass more and so cut deeper leaving a line. If the tyres are soft this is exaggerated. Best where possible to mow up and down slope. Next park on a flat surface like you garage floor. Carefully measure the distance from the outside of the mower deck to the floor. Measure the deck height with the unit in the cutting position. Best to do this on the rear edge of the deck where it just starts to be straight across the back. On two spinner decks, one is in front of the other so they can over lap without hitting each other. This means that the distance from the rear wheels can be different on either side. Three spinner units usually have the centre one in front. The deck swings up and down from the front attachment yoke. So the front of the deck will not rise as much as the rear. There are hangers which are lifted by the pedal which lifts the deck. If the distance to the floor is unequal, adjust the hanger threads until they hang evenly. I have not yet experienced a spring in any mower hangers.
Check first your tyre pressures are correct. Check tyres are fitted facing the right way round, they normally have arrows showing direction of travel. Did you buy the bike like this or what was done prior to this happening? Also check wheel spindle bolts on front and rear wheels are correctly tightened. Also check tyres for ballooning(bulges) and any other damage. Also check the tyres are seated on the rim correctly. This is VERY SERIOUS, DO NOT RIDE the bike without resolving this as it may throw you and your passenger off the bike!!!! If you dont find the problem get professional advice ASAP. Good Luck
Check the front tyres for a bulge or twist in them, this can happen if the cords in the tyre break (Have you hit the curb recently?). Also it could be a tracking problem and as you say a ball joint or track rod end/steering rack. Chock the wheels before you jack it up.
The caliper should be bolted on tightly at the mounting points, but should float back and forth so the pads do not wear unevenly. Other things to check for odd front end rattles. Are your steering head bearings tight? That can cause rattling or knocking as well as handlebar shaking. A bad front wheel bearing can cause rattling or knocking (one side is bad and the wheel is twisting/rocking. Elevate the front wheel , grab it in the 10 and four position, and see of you can notice the wheel moving where the bearing hits the axle. Fork lower has worn out and the bushing is banging when it rocks. Rare but possible. Should see unusual wear on tube and movement wear tube meets lower. With wheel off , grab bottom of lower tube and top of lower tube check for movement.
Better start checking everything. depending on the severity of the wobble, it may just need something simple like a new tyre. But all of the following can cause a problem
tyre pressures\and balance\incorrect sizes
wheel bearings front and rear
spoke tension( if it has spokes)
Head bearings\twisted forks
swing arm bushes
change front fork oil\check suspension settings
loose axle bolts
string line the wheels
bent frame or forks
Make sure the mower rake angle is not too much,On level floor point one of the blades in a front rear orientation,measure height of blade from floor the front measurement should be no more than 1/4" lower than the rear measurement.If the front of the mower is too low the angle the belt has to run is too much and the belt will twist and wear rap[idly.To raise the front of the deck there are either one or two adjustment rods that attach the front of mower deck to frame tighten this adjustment up to raise the front of mower deck.
