Customer reply replied 7 months ago

With out spinning the wheel on the car, can you move the wheel and make it wobble if you just try to move the tire in and out?

Ask Your Own Jaguar Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
yeah I could drive it to move it at my house so I could work on it - I took the tire off and tried to move it and it didn't move but i didn't give it a lot of force

Can you send me a pic of the wheel front and back?

Ask Your Own Jaguar Question

If you do not mind, can you send me one more pic please? What I need is a pic from the back of the car as low as you can get pointing back up at the rotor in a straight line towards the front so I can see if the rotor is in line please.

ok give me a minute
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
here is 4 pics please let know if there good for you

I do not see anything that would cause a wobble. There are a few things that are bent or need to be replaced, The tie rod is bent, the sway bar link is bad as well as the upper ball joint. Can you take the wheel and have it spin balanced? I do not see anything that pops out at me on the wheel, but it did take a hard hit to bend the tie rod.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i can but will replacing the tie rod, the sway bar link, and upper ball joint my problem?

If the wheel is not bent too, yes these parts should correct your problem. The tie rod is the most important one of the three.

the upper ball joint is bad? I can't see its bent at all - could you tell me which pic you see it in please?

The upper ball joint is not bent, it is just bad. The boot that holds grease in has been busted for a long time form the looks of it.

Ask Your Own Jaguar Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
6 cyl
Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Yes

Ask Your Own Jaguar Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
OK right now I'm gonna check the balance on the tire/rim, replace the stabilizer bar, and the tie rod. If this doesn't fix it how do I contact you

Just come back to this page and post a message to me. You are not having the balance checked, you are having them spin the wheel to see if it is bent.
