    Default Buick LaSabre

    Wife was driving home in her 93 LaSabre tonight. She drives this route 5
    days a week to and from work. She said she was not going too fast but when
    she went over a railroad crossing the car started the thump thump thump. She
    pulled over and called me. I don't know if thump gets faster with speed but
    it is very load. I think it could be about each revelation of the tire. It
    did seem to be stronger when I turned into a drive. Was lucky a house near
    by let us park it over night.
    I will have it towed in tomorrow or Monday morning. My thought is a CV joint
    gave way. About a month ago I thought is needed a CV axel but it turned out
    just struts. It was nearly dark when I got there so I really didn't get to
    look under it.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Post some more information once you've gotten it home and can take a look
    Tim. Are you certain that a tire is not flat? CV is not completely out of
    the question, but you'll need to take a look for anything obvious.

    Tire is not flat or low. I think it will need to be towed.

    I jacked it up and took the wheel off. A bolt had apparently rusted and a
    suspension bar broke lose and the stud for it went into the CV joint area of
    the axel. It will be towed to a shop tomorrow morning.

    Front sway bar most likely. Not an uncommon failure - though it sure should
    be.
