Hey guys I need some help here bad, when I get on it at about half throttle and more running through the gears there is like a thumping coming from the right front and its pulling to the right some when im on it when Im not it goes straight. When I get on the brakes hard there is one big thump and the brakes are pulsating like its abs when I get on them too, I can take the passenger side wheel when its in the air and feel play when I go side to side with it but not up and down.
New Stuff...
Hub Bearing on the right side
Cv Shaft when I put the clutch in got it from a low miles car
Outer tie rod ends
Passenger side inner tie rod end
It started this after I got it all together from welding everything up about 20 miles after, the new hub bearing has only about 250miles on it. I just cant figure this one out, mechanic says cv shaft but it shouldent have play side to side in the hub.

Thanks
Curtis

I check all the mounts they look good, I jacked it up found my friend that tightend the tie rod end didnt tighten it enough just got it to where the cotter pin would go though, tightend it down and i can still take the wheel and woble it lugs are all tight it seems like the damn bearing is bad again. Cv shaft is still tight no tears in the boots, the hub isn't wobbling just the splined sleeve that the cv shaft goes through are though.

Thanks

The only thing to do is find the problem. Just take it one step at a time and remember ya got yourself a fifteen year old car there. Have someone rock the car and crank the steering while you look and listen, or put it on the stands and carefully use a pry bar here and there and you should find your problem.

Bad ball joint? Maybe your new wheel bearing blew out again? Wheel is bent? Tire our of balance? Did you somehow forget to reconnect the sway bar to the control arm? Axle nut coming off? I suggest checking everything with a bushing/bearing and make sure all is OK as well.
