I have a 2002 lincoln ls v6. I need to replace lower control arm bushings. Can I use the jag s type for the v6 like it said you could for the v8. And how would I go about doing it- I've located a place to buy the bushings only.

#135 of 139 Wobbly Tire
Jun 13, 2012 (4:54 pm)
I have a 2005 LS V8 and whenever I go above 40mph the right rear wheel wobbles and causes the entire car to shake/vibrate. The shaking and vibrating doesn't stop until I slow below 40mph. I think the ball joint is my issue but I'm not sure. Could somebody help? Furthermore, does anyone know where I can get a rear ball joint from? Thanks in advance for any help.

Sounds more like a wheel bearing. I don't think there's a rear ball joint.

I own an 02' LS 3.0. Recently I was turned down inspection do to the steering rack leaking. I had the work done on the car got the sticker and a week later it seemed to be leaking worse. I could actually see the fluid on the ground where I had never noticed it before. Took the car back and had another rack installed. this time it was placed off center. I could turn the wheel right and go in a circle standing still basically and could hardly turn left so again I brought it back. The mechanic has told me that alot/all of the replacement racks made for my car were built defective and that his supplier is having one made... I personally find this hard to swallow and I cant find anything online about it. They have had my car for about 2 months now. does this replacement part defect hold water or should I get a refund and go elsewhere???? thanks in advance.

Your mechanic is full of it. I'd get my car out of there as soon as possible.
#139 of 139 Not stabilizer or sway bar.

Actually, the long bar that the top of the sway bar is connected to is what is causing the clunking noise. I can hear it when I jiggle that long bar when my sway bar is uninstalled. I might tack a weld where the long bar connects along the front of the bottom of the car. However, the bushing from that sway bar is warped and the joint has too much "play" in it, which may be causing that long bar to jiggle freely when the sway bar is actually attached. We'll see...
