Ok, I have a 1997 XR7 Anniversary edition Cougar..
A few months back we had got the car and it just barely pulled left , even when u hit the brakes. then one day the lower ball joint broke on the passenger side front..
So we replaced that ball joint, now the car pulled to left a lil more and would jerk hard left when u hit the brakes. The hareder u hit the brakes the worse it is.. So we gave the car back to a family member to fix it..
They replaced the front calipers, brake lines , rotors and struts. \
After I told them it needed all new ball joints and an alignment.. But they didnt do that.
So what they did, didnt fix a thing.. So they took it to a shop.. The shop tells them its the ABS modulator valve causing it to pull hard left.. of course it would be since its a $700 new part..(IMO)
I thought the ABS valve didnt control individual wheel pressure enough to cause this issue? And if so, cant I bypass the ABS?
Why wasnt the alignment or ball joints checked? They clearly needed replaced, anyone could see that since the boots were gone and they are rusted.. Why wouldnt this be the cause of the problem?
i dont have another running vehicle and dont feel comfortable letting my wife drive it...
