Our 04 Sport Trak has started giving a little wobble on the front end when we're braking. Not much, but enough that if you take your hands off the steering wheel, you can see the wheel vibrate back and forth about an inch.
Brakes seem fine, so I'm kind of stuck on thoughts as to what the issue is. Any suggestions?
put jacks under both A--frames with front tires a couple inches off the ground. turn one wheel by hand and see if the other turns also or too much slop between them.. on my F150 i had the idler arm bushing wear out and do that. this is the anchor link that bolts to the frame under the radiator area. other end is bolted to the tie rod cross link.
