Q: Car shaking and other issues

asked by on February 17, 2016

My control bars are seriously out of whack. My steering wheel shakes really bad and the car is pulling to the right. In addition, my ABS indicator light is on, I have some wires that need replacing, one of my fog lights is out, and my front right wheel hub needs checking.
