I changed tires on the wifes Rincon and when I started to change the right front I noticed that there was a half inch wobble or better. What could cause this? I checked the others and there was no movement...I also noticed when I back up or move forward there is a clicking noise but its in the rear not the front. The clicking is more distinct when I turn either in reverse or foward. Im sure there not related but I could use some advice as to what to check.

Could be bearings or ball joints.

same thing! the front left has a death wobble. another trip to the dealership for parts $$$$$$$$$
i have the same death wobble on the front of mine so i tore it apart to see what the problem was. anyways when i got the knuckle off and took the snap ring off to pound the bearing out, it just dropped out!! Put a new one in and it still has the wobble so im assuming the knuckle itself is toast cause the bearing was let go too long

if after you change your bearings and it still wobbles it is your cv axle i'v replaved it twice about $400 for original part i got one off ebay for $100
A worn cv joint will not cause your wheel to wobble. Its either the wheel bearing itself or the ball joints.

I vote bearings. Watch the ball joints when you wiggle it and if they're OK then replace the bearings. Had a bad death wobble on the Foreman before bearings and it's golden now.
