Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The front end feels like driving a boat. It's hard to control. One day it drove normal as if nothing was wrong and now it's doing it again.

Jack up the front of the Jimmy on a level surface and use jackstands. Check your suspension. Even check your wheel lugnuts, they might be loose.

Check condition of outer CVJ's or u-joints of front axles.

If the outer joints are binding up due to wear, you be all over the road.
