Question about Cars & Trucks

My 2005 Malibu pulls hard to the left. What causes that?

I have been told that replacing the steering box will take care of this problem. I have new tires, new front struts. There is also a distinct clunking sound when turning.

SOURCE: rattle/clunk front end of a 2001 grand caravan

Front stabilizer/sway bar bushings sound worn. I had same, on my 91'. Felt like someone was thumping the floor under my feet sometimes. I managed to get away with spinning the outer ones at control arms, but replaced ones in middle at frame.

SOURCE: Clunk sound when turning left in 2005 Chev Malibu

I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.

SOURCE: Clunk/knock sound coming thru steering column from front wheels.

Sounds like the sway bar stabilizing links are shot.

I have 2005 Chevy Malibu LS Model. steering makes knocking sound and shaking when you turn it left and right and finally it gets that hard that you cant even turn it. I know it has an electrical system no...


you should take it to a shop that can work on these systems if not go to a dealer to have it checked.there is sensors that affect the electrical steering systems.and should only be work on by qualified techs,as if you do it yourself you may not have a problem but you could end up causing an accident if not done properly.
