"rotor keeps wobbling" - the rotor is held in place by the wheel lug nuts. If it's wobbling, it needs to be replaced.The caliper pins allow one side of the caliper to move in/out from the other. The pins are fixed to one side and should be tight. The movement should be smooth. I have had at times, to rotate the pin to a particular position in order to get smooth movement of the caliper.
The noise at full lock is the pump screaming for mercy. All power steering pumps will complain a bit if the steering is held at full lock. Now, if the belt to the pump is loose, it will scream even louder, because holding the steering at full lock will cause the belt to slip. There is also a technical service bulletin for your vehicle concerning loud power steering noise which involves replacing the fluid lines and.or fluid cooler. This is not cause for concern, but an aggravation to the ears.
The "wobble" thing in the steering wheel is a whole different story. If it is wobbling all the time, it would almost have to be a tire/wheel or axle problem. I know you said this is not the problem, but I think you need to look again. Try rotating the tires to the back and see if the wobble changes. A very severerly warped brake rotor can cause this also, but will be much worse during braking. A bad axle shaft can also cause a wobble in the steering. This is consistent with your description of the problem changing during turns...A bad axle shaft can do this. Also check for looseness in the front wheel bearings.
it could be the shocks but due to wheel wobble i would say its more to do with worn bushings on the suspension arms etc.... best way to check is to jack up each front corner of the car at a time and shake the wheel see if it has movement side to side or front to rear if so i would reccomend getting it looked at or replacing the bushings :) hoep this helps
The most common cause of brake pulse is wheel bearings, because the rotor wobbles.
The way to tell is that you will also feel it through the steering wheel, when not applying brakes.
If the rotor wobbles, it will also make the brakes spongey, because the wobble will cause some piston retraction, causing a longer throw when applying.
It is usually the fronts that go bad before the back. And one side before the other, often because a bad seal allowed water in. But you can tell by jacking up and feeling for play.
If not a wheel bearing, then I would consider ABS problem, or the rotor was installed wrong.
your bearings. thats what it sounds like to me. if it almost sounds like you have a big rock just jumbling around in your tire thats most likely your bearings. its pricey but its worth it to get it fixed. if thats not it check into your transfer case and your shocks
yes it is possible, it is possible the rotor was not turned properly and it is out of round but it is also possible the hub bearing on passenger side is going out also.you should lift car and ssee if wheel is flexing up and down and side to side
