: side-to-side instability

Hey experts, what do you think...

I'm noticing a significant increase in play in the front suspension. For example, when I cross a set of railroad tracks that are angled to the road the front end feels like it's shaking side to side for a second or so. It stays straight and I don't have to cournter steer, but it's got me concerned.

I'm scheduling a service visit later this week, but would like to hear some guesses from you fine folks.

And yes, I'll double check tire pressure before I get to the dealer.

Have no idea.........if a suspension issue it could be a number of items. Nothing to mess with tho.......get it looked at. Let us know what you find out. I'd check the lug nuts for sure right now.

oh, yeah. the weather got warmer.

much better after dropping the tire pressures back to normal.

Just got budgetary clearance for new summer tires, so I'll probably have my tire guy check it out when I do the tires and hit the dealer if necessary.
