Thanks for reply.
Brought her in to shop today. While on the lift he discovered play is in bearing. The "light " front end is the idler arm (I think he said). Anyway there is some play there. Arm or joint to be replaced, front tires to rear,alignment,and all should be well!
This gets better...car suddenly very rough-couldn't get past 2000rpms! Catalytic converter bad-replacing that and rear muffler. What a day!!!!! So glad still under warranty! (exhaust parts $615.00 alone! Didn't catch suspension/alignment pricing!)
Drove our Miata tonite-highway and around back roads to home-first time in a week-what a difference between the two cars!
Take care, thanks for the help, Mel
