my 82' wagon makes a weird thumping noise as i decelerate from high speeds and vibrates, this comes from the fron passenger side as well as when i let off the gas the car pulls to the passenger side
does this sound like the cv joint? anyway to check? how to replace and how tough?

R&R your ball joints. Steering with the brake or gas pedals is a sure sign of some really bad ball joints.

Check everything else while you are down there. CV boots, etc.

Nathan_d - an 1982 - more then likely has high milage... :eek:

Sounds like time to check the entire front suspension.... :confused:

Lower Ball-joints - tie rods - both inner and outter and cv joints.

Also test the CV joints and not just inspect the boots but how the CV sounds on a tight circle when road testing in some parking lot...

Good Luck and keep us posted,
