you most probably have a suspension problem. It's a ball-joint that needs replacing.
how would that affect me braking or accelerating?
please explain. I'm new at this
when you are accelerating or braking the vehicle will tilt forward and backward, causing more load on the suspensionas if trying to rip it off or compressing it. That's why a defective ball joint will move and make a sound. Was that clear enough?
yeah. I thought that might be a problem, but would this contribute to the vehicle shaking at 60+ mph?
