I got this 93 taurus 3.0 automatic.. runs pretty good.. i had this once
before and all i did was change out one of the front tires and it went
away... the old tire had an EGG, or Ball or what ever they call a lump
when the bands inside the tire come apart and make a bulge in it.....
welli got the shimmy back again about two to three year later and these
two front tires dont have any eggs or balls on them... any ideas of what
i could be.. i know tire, and balancing might be the culprit(s) when i
drive about 0 -20 mph no shaking, but when doing 35=-40 it shakes.. and
when going 55-65 or more these is no shake in the steering wheel......
any clues will be appreciated......
I am sure you checked your CV boots for cracks because i know
you (and I) have done plenty of work on our Taurus.
Why not just swap the front tires to the rear? if the symptoms change, you
found your answer.
You also checked your rims for junk clinging to the insides that
could throw them out of balance? Or checked for a wheel weight
that may have fallen off? Or even crud on one of the brake rotors?
hey, good idea.. you say did you check the CV, could that cause it????
really, not kidding.. i cant get under the car right now.. bad back,
rain, wet ground.. but will check them when the back and the weather
clears up.. how would hte cv cause this???? thanks......
thaks for the replies, but it was the tire.. i missed it, a 3 in. long
slit along the treads to sidewall... coming loose.... i guess monday is
tire day(for the right front tire)... oh well.. it did have good threads
on it... i guess they did not want to stay on long enough...
