Wheel Shimmy on Braking

Hey,

I need to get your advice on what is wrong. On harder braking, my front passenger side wheel moves back and forward (side to side) like there is excessive play in the steering linkage but it has been checked and the linkage is fine. Is the cv joint to blame??

Today the abs light was coming on and this wheel shimmyed back and forth 3 inches on a hard brake test. This is not duplicated on the other wheel, which has a new cv joint. I am not sure how old the passenger side cv is, but i is clicking on turns which is an indicator that it needs to be replaced.

What do you guys think?

Re: Wheel Shimmy on Braking

your cv is def on its way out, as you know by the clicking.

not to ask the obvious, but... are your lug nuts tight?


also, jack the front pass side up, than grab the wheel @ 3 and 9 o'clock position, and rock it back and forth, and in and out. then do the same @ 12 and 6 o'clock. you should be able to isolate where the excessive play is.
