Problem Description and Possible Solution
Irregular and premature tire wear can be caused by the front thrust link bushings cracking and causing excessive movement in the suspension. The thrust link bushings are fluid-filled (to help reduce vibration), so if they crack, they will leak oil.

I think I have the same problem as the car shimmies and front end vibrates when the car goes around a gentle curve to the right. the steering wheel shakes also. This started happening fairly suddenly and is getting pretty bad. Almost feels like the left front wheel is ready to fall of, but I checked and all is tight.
The same shaking happens when I apply the brakes only at a certain speed and a certain pressure. If I push a little harder the wheel shake stops.
