What is the parts name for the piece that connects to steering column under the hood that causes wheel to wobble. would this part being broke cause the alignment to be off?

We used to call them a steering rag because it was made out of a heavy cloth like material. Now days they have steering joints. They are essential in being able to steer, and if kept in good condition, would prevent play in the steering wheel. That alone would likely not allow your steering to go out of alignment technically. Replace it and you should be god to go. Good luck in getting at it though.Many other things, inner and outer tie rod ends, ball joints, bad bushings, etc. are also causes for out-of-alignment problems (including bent wheels out out of balance or worn out tires)

Steering wheel wiggles from side to side under

Bring the vehicle to a repair shop that has a Hunter wheel alignment rack. They will tell you what your suspension needs and do the correct alignment.
Sounds like tires and ball joints, possible control arm bushings . I need to do visual inspection and know make , year and model of vehicle to give a fairly decent diagnosis of your problem.

Subframe damage

Steering wheel has play in seems like its coming from the column.

Check to make sure the intermediate shaft (the u-joint at the bottom of the column) is not cracked or worn, and that the pinch bolts are tightened.

Check to make sure the busings that secure the rack to the subframe are not worn out.

Check to make sure that the subframe bolts are all there, that the washers are there, and that the subframe bushings are not worn out (chunks missing and nasty greasy is a bad sign).

Check to make sure the tie rod ends are not worn out.

Check to make sure the lower control arm bushing is not worn out.

Check your front tire pressures.

All steering and suspension components replaced, including rack and pinion unit, with new r&p unit measured to be an exact match of the old one and the vehicle has never been wrecked ... yet when i...

you may have to reattach the rack or possibly the subframe may need loosened and moved slightly-any time the subframe is removed or lowered it effects the alignment and may make it difficult to get the alignment into specs

I have uneven wear on my 2006 toyota tundra tires, the right tires are worn much more on the outer edge than the left. any thoughts?

You have a front suspension part that is worn and/or need the front end aligned. If problem is in the rear you may need a four wheel alignment. If it was low air pressure it would wear the inside and outside edges of the tires.

Crunching noise in front end

The front suspension components tend to wear out on these cars. The strut bearings (top of the strut) wears out, and you replace those at the same time as the spring seat rubber cushions. Either of them failing can lead to a crunching noise.

Not only that, but the lower control arms have bushings in them that wear out with time/miles. When they wear out your alignment also goes out of whack and you'll eat tires up.
If you see cupping or uneven wear in the front, that's most likely it.

If you had the end links replaced and did NOT have it aligned, that could exacerbate the problem.
An alignment shop should check the ball joints, lower control arm bushings and related items to confirm that they CAN align the parts.

These are not bad cars, so you shouldn't have a lot of repair shops. It almost sounds like the shop you're going to is a little too eager to have you pay for things without proper diagnostics.

Check some of the volvo forums for a local independent shop near you - they live on reputation, unlike a dealer. Tires don't have to be what the dealer recommends, but General Grabber UHP are good ones, Michelin Primacy MXM4s are good too and Continental DWS are excellent tires too.
If you *need* tires now, you might want to put something cheap on it if they just wear out before you get the alignment and bushings/bearings issues solved.

Finish everything off with a FOUR WHEEL alignment to ensure all tires are rolling properly, and ensure the tire pressures are correct.

Your crunching noise could be compounded by all these things, and none of them are really crazy expensive or a big problem.

Good luck, and please let us know by commenting below what the actual problem is/was when you get it resolved.

I'm linking you a comprehensive suspension kit so you can see what's involved (parts and cost) and then you could find a reliable/trustworthy local mechanic to install it if you're not sure you want to do it yourself.

My mechanic told me that the bushings that hold up the subframe are showing signs of cracking. He said that since the steering column is attached I would lose control if the bushings broke. Is it possible...

It is highly unlikely that the bushings will fail. They do tend to crack alittle, but the bolts will still hold the subframe on. Now if they are rusted out, this is a possibility. You do have 4 bushings holding the subframe on also. 2 at the front, and 2 at the back.

hi, is this front or rear anti-rollbar? Front ones are a right pain, you have to drop the front subframe for access. If you don't have a wheelfree ramp then it's not a job for the faint hearted! You also need to disconnect the steering column to allow the subframe to drop far enough to get at the bolts that secure the collars over the bushes. Before you disconnect the steering column, point the wheels straight ahead and remove the key so that the steering lock stops the steering wheel turning, this is to prevent damage to the contact reel for the air bag, which can be damaged if the steering is turned too far beyond normal rotation!
