Lower Control Arm Replacement Issue
This is my first post and I try and do a lot of car work on my own but I'm no mechanic, so go easy on me.
My brother and I replaced the front right lower control arm assembly on my 2001 Dodge Neon last night. During the replacement we struggled to reinstall the new control arm, particularly getting the hub/rotor and the control arm ball bearing stub lined up and re-installed. We were really moving the hub/rotor around a lot inside the wheel housing, trying to re-position the hub/rotor up above the bearing and fighting the strut spring. We finally did get everything positioned and reinstalled. However, now while I'm driving down the highway at a constant speed there is a momentary skip/slip at a regular interval...it almost feels like hitting a little bump. Also, while slowing down (foot off the gas, letting the car coast), the engine will Rev and the car seems to momentarily accelerate at a regular interval and at idle I hear the engine click and it seems some vibrations pick up, then cycle back to normal, then click and cycle back to normal. Anyway, I think all three issues are related, but I'm not sure or if it would some how be related to the control arm replacement. I was wondering if anybody could offer any help.
