I need your opinions on the wheel wobble up front. I've got my tires rotated and balanced, went to another tire store and they did an alignment, but said that my alignment was already perfect so I didn't need one, they also re-checked my front right (passenger side) tire and said it was balanced correctly. I switched my driver side rear shock with the front ride to see if it could be the shock and it still wobbles. I have a new (fairly new) inner tie rod. I'm thinking it could be either a bad coil, bad outer tie rod ends or maybe even a bent or cracked frame somehow. Anyone have any ideas. Thanks for any and all suggestions.

it wobbles inside you can feel it when you drive or you actually seen the wheel wobble (had someone drive it while you looked) or is the steering loose and feels like it wobbles????

My bad on the wobble explanation. When the tire is off the ground it doesn't shake or move so I don't think it's a wheel bearing. When I drive down the road/frwy I can feel it shake/wobble from the front right side. I can also feel it through the steering wheel. It's not violent, but it's annoying as hell when taking a trip down the frwy.

have you checked your rotors? right front shock? does the steering wheel feel loose?

If all else seems tight, make sure your calipers are not sticking, and have the rotors turned.

That's a great idea as I did just changed my brake pads about 3-4 weeks ago. The rotors were turned so that shouldn't be a problem, but will check the caliper, thanks. Make sure that dam pin didn't pop out or come lose.

I don't know, got any pics so I can see if it was her? haha

Well, this might shed some light on things. I have a receipt that I found from the guy who got my computer for the bronco for me. On the bottom it says that they noticed what appeared to be a crack in the frame by the crossmember up front. however, I just went out with a flashlight and of course couldn't see anything (dirty under there). I am going to try and pressure wash the frame tomorrow and see if I can see what they were talking about. Never noticed anything like that when I was under the truck at all.

get a can of carb cleaner while your out or some B12 chemtool and one of those green 3m scrubby pads it makes it easy to clean grime to see the frame better !

Daaaammmm. If I had hit that I would have smashed the entire front of my truck. If I were you, and I'm not, I would burn that pic and never admit to that as my ex anything. Hahaha.


I will try and spray with some carb cleaner and/or brake cleaner that I got from Las Vegas. They used to sell that good cleaner that CA. won't sell because they say it's harmful to the ozone layer. Thanks for the tips and I will let you know what I find. This wobble is freakin' irritating as all hell.

Is the rim seating onto the front hub correctly? Maybe something on the hub is preventing the rim from coming all the way in?
Im also wondering why its been to two shops and neither shop diagnosed it?

I will definately check into the ball joints as I know I've done nothing with them since I've owned the truck and i've put on 100,000 miles since I've owned it. Now has 240,000 miles on it. Can't do it today, but will check it this weekend (Sunday).
