wobble while coasting

Post by timothy » Fri Jul 07, 2017 3:27 pm

so my 05 freestyle has developed a wobble when I start coasting.. Feels like a out of balance tire, but you only feel the wobble when I let off the peddle. Speed does make it worse. I checked the to see anything obvious but did really notice anything in the suspension. The top motor mount(over the engine) is bad but that's been bad before I bought the car.
Let me know if any of you can think of anything thanks

If speed makes it worse I would lean toward it being a bent or damaged wheel first. Are your lug nuts all tightened correctly?

Lug nuts are good, haven't recently hit a curb.

still not sure I jacked up the car and the passenger side tire rod end is nasty.. real loose. however I am getting wear on the outer edge of the tires.. not sure why, suspect its related though. both control arms are good however I do have really loose sway bar links(even though they were replace by ford right before I purchased the car). wheel bearings are also good. but I do have a random clack when I move the driver side front wheel in the right way. not sure though what it is, because it isn't the arm and the tire rod on that side is new. (crazy theory... maybe rack?) maybe its some sort of resonance?
