NEW PROBLEM

At first, I was told it was my brakes because there was a dragging sound under my car so I had a friends jack up my car on the left side. The brakes and rotors are good. Now I drive the car and it shakes bad and now I hear a bad clicking or grinding noise from the right side front. Also the tire on the right side shakes like it is about the fall off. It didn't start making this noises until my friend jacked it up. Could having it jacked up from the left side could it have snapped something on the right side?

No, make sure the wheels are tight.

It may be a bad wheel bearing as well.

Take it to a real shop for a diag at least to find the failure.

Dear Roy: That problem has been resolved. Do have another question though. My left front shock is covered in a greasy black substance. Could my CV boot be torn and spray grease?
