Ok so i am a recent owner of a used pontiac g8 gt 2009. It is the liquid red color. So the problem i am having just started a couple days ago. The previous owner had changed the lower control arms on both sides of the car in the front. It has two arms that make up the control assembly and i am not sure if did all of them or not. But anyways, when i am driving at highway speeds and the roads curves to the right, my wheel (front left), shakes like it has some play in the wheel or something. In order to check the LCA’s, I have to jack it up and push and see if the wheel gives. It feels like it has lateral play when i am turning on the highway. This only happens when i am turning the steering wheel right, doe not do it at lower speeds or when i am turning left. The front left sounds as if there is something loose or something when i go over pot holes etc.
I dont know if the wheel bearing are bad or what. From what i read the cv joint, ball joint, and LCA’s could all be possible suspects. If anyone could help me narrow this down i would greatly appreciate it.
I am not sure what i have to do to fix it, but i do not want to drive it unless i have to until i get this fixed. .
