If the car was mine, I'd have a competent mechanic look at the suspension components for wear or worn out items. Regardless of mileage on the car and components, things wear out with age. Next, I'd be looking at your tires, is there any uneven wear on them? How old are they? Finally, I'd want my front end alignment checked and possibly redone.

All basics and common sense when driving an old car. Hope you find this helpful.

Hi Bill,

I rotated one side of the car last night! It was so HOT and I couldn’t go any further to the other side. Will do it in several days. I was recommend my several members here to get it aligns. I have one of those old Goodyear tires. I looked at them last night and seen no worn out spots!

Thx for helping and suggestions guys!
