Default Need some help!!

i have a problem with my 2002 lancer oz rally, and i dont have the money to bring it to a shop, so im trying to avoid doin that. let me give a background.

i had a bad pull in the steering (pulling to left) and the front right tire was worn very unevenly, so i got all new tires and got an alignment done. it fixed the problem of the car pulling, for about 2 weeks then it started pulling again. now the car is shaking which i can hear is coming from the front right. it is shaking when at speed but when im rolling slow i can hear a sort of thump sound from the front right. also when i make a right hand turn the front right tires squeel.

Now for the thing that has been wrong with the car from the time i bought it which may have somethin to do with this new problem. when i accelerate and am making a left hand turn i feel a violent shaking from the front right, but not if im not accelerating in the turn, only if im accelerating. this also happens if im accelerating and go over a small bump or hill (like after goin over a hilltop the suspension falls from under the car)

here is what im guessing, the ball joints may be bad causing the vibrating at speed and why the steering is pulling, and the hub bearign may be bad because of the violent shaking under acceleration and turning. any and all input would be greatly appreciated

if not must be the steering column is broken or loose.

if not try fixing the ball joint, tie rod and rack and pinion or the control arm

Sorry to say you need to spend a lot of money if you have Monroe shop go there.
their are good with under carriage repaird hint the name Monroe as in Monroe shocks. they are the cheapest out there. I think you can Haggle just be nice and I always do it with them.

if you have a bigger Rims than the OEM that will cost the problem. like out 18 and the OEM is only 15 that will cost a shaking problem.
