On freeways my 735 will not drive straight.
it will want to change lanes by its self.
someone told me it was my ball joints others tell me strut prob. another guy on the board had almost the same issue only his was a 750 and he was told aligment.???
also these clattering noise from the front are herad when going over a bump.??
has anyone have an answer to this dilemma of mine?
thanks in advance.


The proximate cause of the control problem is probably that your alignment is off and your front tires are probably trying to pull the car to one side or another while your dirving. Typically the cause of the misalignment is worn suspension parts like ball joints, bushings or tie rod ends so whatever is worn will need to be replaced before you have it aligned. Really you won't know what parts you need, though, until it's put up on a rack.

HTH,
