Shakes or Wobbles problem
2000 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 98000 miles
I have a 2000 Mercury Sable that pulls hard to the right, at any speed. Worse, when you hit a bump or dips in the road the car shimmies left and right (one revolution) as if you were rolling around on the top of a ball. I took it to the local repair shop hoping that all it needed was an alignment. The estimate I received said it needed new brakes and rotors (most importantly), new struts, new bearings, and the left front sway bar was broken. They couldn't explain what exactly was causing the " shimmy". I will replace the pads and rotors but I'm wondering what is the next most important step to hopefully get this thing running a little more straight?
