I noticed that my SUV was starting to ride a little rough. A month later it started to ride a whole lot rougher. I saw that my tires on the front end were wearing on the inside tread. Then the whole front end started to shake while driving. I took it to a gateway and they to ld me that it was my two front lower ball joints on the SUV were bad and needed replacing. I don't understand why the truck was riding so smooth and all of a sudden the lower ball joints go bad.
