Your tires being worn out may have ripped radials in them......Which Ive
seen make a wiggle...And feel like the frontend is wanting to
dance..Also will cause what they call radial pull...But what it sounds
like is something may be loose.....To see if its your tires just rotate
them and if the problem goes away then know its your tires but if not
have it inspected....

They did do an alignment but with the tires being almost worn out can
that affect the alignment or ride that much?
It feels like when you have a TON of weight in the back of a truck and
the front steering feels lose and wiggly. If that's the right
That last few days the steering on my S10 has gotten lose. It's hard to
explain, but when driving down the highway, the truck sways side to
side. Like the wheels are being steered back and forth slightly. When
the front goes an inch or so to the right, theback is going left. Every
once in a while I can feel a slight nudge or pulling in the wheel. Like
what you feel when driving over a lane change and you go over the crack
in the road.
I had the upper and lower ball joints, idler arm, pan arm bar and all
stabilizer bar joints replaced a year ago. All of that looks good under
the truck. Nothing looks loose or wrong.
The tires have 92K on them and are low on tread. The fronts have a
little less then 1/4 inch left and the rears slightly less then that.
Would the low tread cause it to start to feel like that? Now that I feel
it a lot, I think it's been doing it fro quite some time just not as
bad. Always thought it was a side wind or something. Any ideas?
PS Truck as 287K on it.
Looks may be decieveing......You cant look at a frontend to see if its
loose you need to raise it...
Most shops will check a frontend for free....Or check it yourself you
nee to raise the whole frontend up at one time....try to wiggle the tire
side to side with out turning it if the tire has alot of play something
is loose or worn out..Also check your tire pressure...Also when you had
everything replaced did you have a alignment done on it also? Steve C
