Tumbling 'feeling'

Alright people so since a couple weeks i've been noticing a tumbling feeling (kinda like sheets in the washing machine) that increases with speed and i'm pretty sure that it's coming from the front end. I replaced ball joint about 7k miles ago and just did swaybar link ends today. The weird thing is that you cant really hear it, i just feel it. Its the worst at low speeds and when i get up to higher speeds i don't feel it.

Thanks

Any suggestions?

I had the wheels balanced by AM when i bought them and all the weights are still there. One thing i did notice was tho that there is way less thread on the right wheel than on the left wheel.

How long ago did you buy them rule of thumb you should be balancing your wheels every 5000 miles or so. With that lower tread on the right wheel sounds like you have a suspension problem or a bad alignment

Can a wheel bearing cause that kind of tumbling because one day i was driving in the rain and when i parked i noticed that my front right center cap was missing, the dust cap somehow got loose and knocked it out. Water definitely got under the dust cap and im assuming it messed up the wheel bearing. Should i stay away from auto part store brand wheel bearings?

You need to replace the entire wheel hub/bearing assembly. I bought a pair of Motorcraft hubs from Rockauto.
I understand that the bumpsteer kits are kind of tricky to install correctly. That would be the first thing that I would check, relating to the uneven tire wear problem.

Get an alignment and replace both hubs. Hubs are easy. Probably are going to need new front tires too if one is boogered up.
