Bad wheel bearing or tie rod end?
I have a 2001 grand marquis, I have
replaced all 4 ball joints and the idle
bar, within the last 6 months. Now I
started getting steering wheel
"jimmy". How can I find out what is
causing this problem?
did you get an alignment after changing the ball joints
No I didnt. But would it have taking 6 months for the jimmy to start? Also it started after I hit a pot hole lightly. When I grab the tire and pull I do here a sound. But don't hear anything when pulling the other front tire.
that could be a suspention or some thing on one side and not the other
Anyway I can figure if the alienment isn't causing this. Since if it's the tie rods. Once I replace them I know I will need an alignment
have you checked the PSF lately
Psf? Sorry don't know much about cars. Just trying to save some money. Don't feel like paying someone to do it. If It is something I can fix
Jack the car up and check the wheel for up and down movement (ball joint) or side to side movement (tie rod ends) or if both movements, possible wheel bearing
Thanks I'll check for radial and tangential movement
Wheels out of balance, bad wheel bearing.
