Reference from last night: http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=forum&Number=753905&page=8&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

Ok, after a big meal of BBQ last night, I'm back at it.

Bearings are ok, but I am repacking for good measure.

Tie Rods is was decided was ok, there is no play in them, and no noise when the vehicle is not moving.

Right now I am thinking it could be Ball Joints. A friend said to put the tire back on and drop it on a long pry-bar, then lift up (since I am stronger than the average bear) and I should get play if it is the ball joints.

If it is the ball joints, is this something I can service/replace myself or does it need a machine?

Thanks,
wsgts

There's a ball joint removal tool. It looks like a big two tined fork. Use a BFH and knock her loose.

It's fixed!!! Fortunately, after repacking the bearings, all noises as well as tire shake went away. I think it was not packed tight enough and was just allowing too much slack. Glad to have that problem fixed!!

Later,
