A while ago I noticed the driver's side left wheel seemed to be turned
to the right more than the other side when looked dead on. Today I
jacked her up and grabbed the driver's side front wheel and there is a
lot of play in all directions. 12 & 6; 3 & 9; 1:25 & 7:25; etc. It
just wobbles all over. How many different problems am I looking at
here? Ball joints, hub bearing, etc. I might also need some advice
in replacement procedures but will beg that later. Thanks all; have a
I grabbed the tire and did what you said "push/pull it in and out" and
there was no play at all; it really did not budge. But like I said
there is slop and wobble when it is pusded and pulled in opposite
clock positions. Could this still be the hub bearing?
Thanks for all the help. You all helped me replace the other side a
few years ago so maybe I can do it without bugging you guys too much.
Here's the link from three years ago if interested:
Thanks again, Steve
