check the steering rack ball end joint i had this problem it was not the king pin but bad aliment , worn ball end joints and balance rod bushes


i checked everything else...thats the only thing that shakes under there....everything else is basically new anyway.


then try the one of the bearing on the drum or disc sometimes the bearing gets loose and start to shake the wheel and wired sound starts coming from the hub


its not the hub bearings

I have a 96 Inifiniti G20, just had new calipers, rotors, brake pads, (all 4,) and drivers side lower ball joint to the tune of 800.00, but they said it still needs a king pin and they can't find the part...I'm having a hard time understanding how you can fix the brakes for 800. and then still be looking for the last part to complete the job, so does that mean the brakes aren't really fixed??.....can anyone help me understand this? And yes, I'm a girl :)
