Will driveaxels cause a wobble in the front end?


it is possible that a bent shaft or failed cv joints will cause the problem
it depends if the wobble starts at a certain speed and gets worse up to a speed then stops or just gets to the point where steering control is lost
because the bearings have been replace along with tie rod ends I am tempted to consider that the axles are not the problem ( unless the repairs stated were done to fix the wobble ) but the the wheel bearing adjustment is not correct and that the fittment of the tie rod ends has altered the wheel alignment
consider a wheel alignment to correct a castor fault ( wheel wobble) and recheck the correct adjustment of the wheel bearings
if the cv joints are worn , dry ,they can be binding up and not altering angular movement easily which may appear as a wheel wobble

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing and or possible worn Tie rod ends. jack up front end of car and grab wheel on top and bottom and try to wiggle it also try by grabbing on the sides of the wheel. If you have play there you better get your wheel bearings changed. Your tires are probably showing wear on the tire that has bad bearings or bad tie rod end.

While driving I make a turn around 45 mph and the cars front right side starts to shake. Also, when Im driving 60 mph on the highaway it starts to shake every 5-7 seconds. What can be the problem?


almost certainly a wheel bearing that is just about to break up.could also be track rod end if you have any play in steering.you need to jack up the car(wheel off the ground)and with your hands at 9-3 oclock, rock from side to side,any "play"will be OBVIOUS. enlist the "eye" or "hands" of a volunteer to help,makes it easier.

My 1999 buick centry it has lots of problems but the tie rod is lose and the bearings r going out is there anyway or anything that could of made that happen like a wreck of some kind or what/ My next...


Well, on a 1999 GM vehicle that has been on the road for an average number of miles per year, the tie rod ends and bearings are likely to go bad over time and with normal wear and tear, especially if normal maintenance hasn't been performed like greasing the tie rod end for instance.

Also, the window motor is probably bad, if with a test light the motor is getting current after removing the door panel.

Front wheel shakes while braking


Several possibilities. Try stopping the car with the parking brake and see if you notice as much shimmy. While loose tie rod ends can cause problems, it sounds more like the rotors may need resurfacing. A worn wheel bearing could cause a problem. Jack the car up so the wheels are off the ground and see if you can move the wheel back and forth. Loose tie rod ends would also show up with this test.

How to change inner tie rod ends?


if fluid is flowing out the bellows, you need to replace the steering rack assembly. There is no fluid in the area of the inner tie rod. The seal is just before the tie rod.

Steering Gear
The power rack and pinion steering gear is serviced as a power steering short rack (3L547). The front wheel spindle tie rods (3280) and tie rod ends (3A130) are serviced individually. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • The power rack and pinion steering gear incorporates quick connect fittings for the power steering pressure hose (3A719) and power steering return hose (3A713) that allow the lines to swivel. This is normal and does not indicate loose fittings.
  • If the fittings leak, check to make sure they are tightened to 14-20 Nm (10-14 lb-ft). Do not overtighten.
  • If the leak is not corrected, replace the fitting seals.

Remove the front wheel. Loosen the jam nut on the tie rod using pliers and wrench with lots of Liquid Wrench or other penetration oil. Back off the jam nut and mark the position of the tie rod end on the tie rod threads with paint.
Remove the cotter pin from the ballstud and then loosen the nut. Again more Liquid Wrench may be helpful. Now place the puller (special tool from auto parts store or Sears Craftsman) over the steering knuckle and separate the tie rod end from the knuckle. Fully remove the nut and then turn the tie rod end off the tie rod.
Installation is just the reverse with the new tie rod end turned on the tie rod up to the paint mark. Tighten the jam nut up to the tie rod end. Secure the tie rod end to the steering knuckle with the nut with a torque of 35 to 46 ft-lbs and insert a new cotter pin. Don't forget to reinstall the front wheel. Checking the front end alignment is recommended. Do not get the more expensive four wheel alignment as they cannot make any adjustment to align the rear wheels. ps Buy at least the Haynes Repair Manual for your car or splurge and buy the Ford complete repair manual.
