Not only ball joints, but anything loose in the front end can cause the
steering wheel to shake side to side.

That's what thought. I guess the noise I'm hearing may be a broken
motor mount then. My old mechanic told me quite some time ago one was
broken, but it would be all right to drive it as long as I didn't punch
the gas too hard. Now I guess the other one is broke.
