Like it says, I'm pretty sure I have it narrowed down to the front right side. Not 100% sure but it seems like its over there. Problem is when I'm taking a corner at 50mph or more the car has some sort of vibration in the front end. Just had it aligned and the tires are good. It also seems to vibrate going down hills at high speeds...The steering wheel also shakes and the car pulls to the left a bit. I really need to figure this out before my tire falls off or something :-? Thanks. :(

Oh man I hate suspension and front end problems. I just had to have new ball joints cause they couldn't align my front end. Have you pulled the wheel yet? I guess the possibilities range from a bent rim to a slipped steel belt in the tire, to a bent sway bar, or the ball joint on that side starting to go. Hey maybe the place that aligned the front end can look at it and figure it out. Good luck with the problem. Post what it was when you find out.

I would recommend that you just disassemble the front brakes to see if they are in good working order. Then I would look to see if the sway bars bushings are still intact. Also check your tie rod ends and your ball joints. Your CV joints could be going too.....

Well I'm lazy and never got to lookin today. I doubt the tires are outta balance just because of when the vibration occurs. Its not constand just under certain circumstances...speedemon, I may have to give that a try :pimp: lol

maybe it has something to do with you taking corners at 50 mph :lol: :lol: :lol:
Prolly is...anyway I figured out my problem...The CV joint :( Its wobbled the tranny seal out to an oval shape so it kinda flops around a bit. Bought a new one, guess I'll try and put it on today.
