I took it to an alignment shop, they lifted the car and the guy told me that the tie rods are not bent and that the alignment would not cause the car to shake. The only thing the saw is that the right front strut its bad, it leaked out the fluid. I also hear the vibration and rattle from the right front. Can a bad strut make the car shake?
Hello again It seems that I got a new problem after I was able to solve the fuse one. When the car was towed I was not there and tow truck driver did not find the tow hook for the car and pulled it up on the flatbed by hooking up to somewhere in the front end of the car. I think he may have pulled it from one of the tie rods because I have a huge vibration now. Does anyone know how I can tell if the tie rod is slightly bent? if its the inner or outer. I doesn't seem so to the naked eye and the wheel does not have any play. Any help would be appreciated it.
Thank you for the help I was not there when the car got picked up, so I couldn't do anything about the tow hook I just wanted to know if there is a way to tell if the tie rods are bent, and it it would be the inner or outer tie rod.
They did not use the tow hoof. I don't know where he may have attached the strap to pull the car up. U don't see anything bent or damaged and I move the tires with the car lifted and do not notice any play
Hello, My 2000 Boxster would not start so I had to have the car towed. After I got the car running I noticed that the front end shakes a lot, the steering wheel shakes and I hear a rattle coming from the front. It does not shake while braking, it does shake when I accelerate or when I let go of the throttle. It did not do that prior to being towed. The tow truck driver could not use the tow hook so I don't know if he damaged the suspension by pulling the car up. I need to know where to look, I have lifted the car and I cant find any play at both wheels. everything seems in order and I don't see any of the rubber boots broken. The only other thing I did was to replace the brake pads in the front. I don't think that can be causing this shake since it does not shake while braking, but who knows. I need help in someone pointing me out where to look to see if I can figure this out.
