Need help identifying problem with tire and wheel issue

Asked by Jul 16, 2014 at 10:27 PM about the 2002 Ford Taurus SES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2002 ford Taurus SES, 230, 000 miles, runs very good. When I reach the
speed of 62 mph or more, my right front tire begins to jump. It stops when I
decellerat below 60 mph. I just today had the rotors turned, I've had the tire
replaced with a fairly new tire and balanced and the problem is the same.
I was told that it could be a ball joint (maybe). I was also told that my shock was
good and was not the problem. Any suggestions would be helpful, thx

1 Answer

34,165

Ball joint, tie rod end, shock. At that mileage replace them all. And both sides.
