i have a 89 ford taurus that runs good except when i get it up to 65
miles or more on the freeway the front end shakes and the steering wheel
shakes. i replaced the inner and outer tie rods both sides because
there were bad. i put new tires on plus had them balance. my cvs are
ok and so are my wheels bearings. i did jack my car up to where both
wheels were off the ground and then i got it up to 65 mph and it still
shakes. i think my ball joints are ok but not sure, can anyone
tell me the best way to check them? also does anyone have any ideal
what could be causing the probelm? thankyou.
It's a good idea to change your ball joints at that age if they are over 100k
But, if you dont see wobble in the wheel, the problem is with your tires...
you need to have them load balanced. Thats pressure on the tire while on
the balancer. Ordinary balance deals with weight/mass only. Cant compensate
Cheap, esp house model/name brand tires like from walmart are very
susceptible to assymmetric belt when they are built.
and the Taurus is highly sensitive to that.
