Asked by Jul 15, 2017 at 03:04 AM about the 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What worn part(s) cause excessive play in
wheel, choppy wear on inside of tire, front
end feels like it's floating rather than
sticking to road surface, wanders with little
to no control in steering

3 Answers


do a visual inspection , grab a wheel and see if it moves side to side , if something is loose you'd better take care of it before it breaks , sounds like your front struts are worn out also


and ball joints too , all of these will make that tire wear uneven


Idler arm, also. I just replaced mine. Steering tie rod ends could be bad also. A shop will determine the problem quickly.
