I've been recently working on my 1973 Caddy Coupedeville I just purchased from a elderly gentelman. The problem being that when driving straight the steering wheel had alot of play.I was told to check the front end. I changed the centerlink, upper & lower ball joints. The car still wanders but what is worse. When I make a right turn (more of a long curve) the wheel tends to be very sensitive & jerky (the car pulls back & forth), but when I turn to the left, there is some play but no jerky (pulling feeling). I also checked and replaced the front disc brakes.I noticed that the rim holes (on both rims) were egged out! Seems like somone forgot to tighten the wheels. (I noticed this when I replaced the brakes. My question is. Could those rims be causing this? Or is it that steering box? How about the tie rod ends? Everything seems fine thou. I'm confused. Any help would be great. Thanks
have the same problem?
