Problem Solver K6429
GM Vehicle Shimmying a lot Lately?
You just felt it again. The shimmying that's been driving you crazy for weeks. You thought it was something that would just go away in time. However, it has now been several weeks, if not longer, and it's still shimmying. You know it's not good for your Chevy, Oldsmobile, or Pontiac so you took it to a mechanic and they used some really big words: radial deflection. You don't know what they mean, it's not something you use everyday. Don't worry because you've found a DST parts expert that does. In laments terms radial deflection is just the side to side movement of your ball joint inside of it's housing. Excessive amounts of this side to side movement is what's causing the shimmying, as well the uneven tire wear or looseness in your steering wheel you might have experienced as well. As a DST parts expert I know you're worried about your car and want to fix it as quickly as possible, so you can get it back in working condition. Moog has crafted a ball joint that solves all of these problems, and more; K6429 is just what you're looking for.
OE Design Problems
When a ball joint starts to experience excessive lateral deflection it will wear prematurely and can fail a lot sooner than it should. This will cause, not only the steering problems you're experiencing, but other problems that can include your ball joint breaking. If your ball joint breaks you'll have to spend even more time and money on repairs.
