2006 Navigator - Steering/Suspenison Issue

Hey gang,

Newbie here... Have a 2006 Navigator with 37,000 miles on it.
(2WD model)

When I drive into a driveway or when driving out of a driveway the front suspension doesn't feel tight. Should feel tight, as it has low mileage on it.

I test drove a new one just so I wasn't thinking it was nothing. The new one drove tight over bumps, and mine feels like it would be something in the steering or the suspension?

I have looked around underneath the truck and can't find anything loose.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Scott

Have you jacked it up and checked for play in the front wheel bearings? With one hand at the 12 o'clock position and the other at 6, check for any in & out movement.

Back again!

Okay so I just finished doing the disc brakes and rotors on my truck. Tried moving the wheel - back that was a no go!

Any other suggestions?

Suspension compnenets feel loose - yet I can't pin=point from where!

Thanks
Scotty

How about have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth in the freeplay area nad see if you can spot a loose component. You might do well to take it to an alignment shop. They check for looseness before alignment. You can always do the repairs and take it back to be aligned.
