Wen you pull the plastic cover behind the steering wheel there are two metal pins on each side, check to make sure they are both in the correct possition

I have excessive play in my steering wheel and a creaking noise when turning the wheel all the way to the left It sounds like the passenger side I was told I need to get the bushings greased and replace...


do not grease bushes . Excessive play in the steering is an indication that the end float or clearance in the box/rack needs adjusting. The noise I suspect to be a bearing failing and that would account for the play. Stabiliser bars have nothing to do with steering. They are there to stop body roll going round a corner.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4X4 with wayyyy too much play in the steering. Scary play. You have to turn the wheel half way around for the tires to start turning. Is it a front end issue?


Lay under the front end and have someone turn the wheel back and forth. Inspect all the steering linkage components for play in the joints. any play is too much and the fitting should be replaced. It may also be the ball joints. They are located on the steering knuckle at each front wheel.Inspect for play in the same manner

Play in stering linkage


The most common of all problems in a steering system is excessive steering wheel play. Steering wheel play is normally caused by worn ball sockets, worn idler arm, or too much clearance in the steering gearbox. Typically, you shou Id not be able to turn the steering wheel more than 1 1/ 2 inches without causing the front wheels to move. If the steering wheel rotates excessively, a serious steering problem exists.

An effective way to check for play in the steering linkage or rack-and-pinion mechanism is by the dry-park test. With the full weight of the vehicle on the front wheels, have someone move the steering wheel from side to side while you examine the steering system for looseness. Start your inspection at the steering column shaft and work your way to the tie-rod ends. Ensure that the movement of one component causes an equal amount of movement of the adjoining component.

Watch for ball studs that wiggle in their sockets. With a rack-and-pinion steering system, squeeze the rubber boots and feel the inner tie rod to detect wear. If the tie rod moves sideways in relation to the rack, the socket is worn and should be replaced.

Another way of inspecting the steering system involves moving the steering components and front wheel BY HAND. With the steering wheel locked, raise the vehicle and place it on jack stands. Then force the front wheels right and left while checking for component looseness.

SYMPTOMS OF BALL JOINT WEAR


If you make a hard right or left hand turn (with steering wheel turned until it stops) you'll hear and feel a pop sensation.When you drive over potholes you'll feel a slight pull to one side.If it is one of the upper balljoints,you can grab the tire with both hands near the top(11 and 1 o'clock) and pull the wheel back and forth.You will feel looseness if the upper balljoint is bad.

Excessive play in steering


There should be a bolt sticking out of the steering box with 1 or 2 nuts on the bolt. This is a thrust setting which puts load on the steering gear. Most people jack the front wheels off the ground and then back off the nut or nuts. You then turn the bolt to screw further into the steering box until you have 1/2 inch or less of play in the steering wheel. Then tighten the nut or nuts down and recheck to see if setting held.

To much play in steering


There are a few things that could be wrong.
1) One of the suspension joints are worn and causing the excessive play, ie....tie-rods, idler arm and so on.
2) Steering gear is worn and in need of adjustment.
All in all, they should take a look at it and determine if anything is out of spec.
I know school buses are required to pass state inspections, has your bus been checked lately?
Good luck.

I have front end vibration that is not caused by alignment. New tires on all four wheels but still have alot of front end vibration. Car is a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon.


just checked this out a while ago:



Wheel Hub Assemblies: Systems and Diagnosis of Worn Hub Assemblies & Bearings
Front wheel hub assemblies and bearings control the position of, and reduce the resistance of, vehicle wheels in contact with the pavement. When they fail, front wheels may not be kept in position and vibration and noise usually develop. Symptoms that normally develop as a result of these worn parts include:
  • A humming, rumbling or growling noise which increases with acceleration or as the vehicles turns
  • Vibration felt in the steering wheel, which changes with vehicle speed or as the vehicle turns
  • Looseness or excessive play in the steering wheel (especially while driving over rough road surfaces)
  • A loud, constant grinding noise when driving the vehicle (heard in the most severe cases of a wheel bearing failure)
  • Pulling to one side when braking.
  • Roughness - with the vehicle of the ground, roughness or vibration when rotating the wheel
  • Looseness - with the vehicle off the ground, looseness when wiggling the wheel back and forth (Looseness may also indicate a worn ball joint)
  • Excessive brake pedal play can also indicate sloppy or excessively loose wheel bearings
  • ABS failure in the system may be related to failure of the ABS sensor in the hub assembly or the internal sensor in the wheel bearing
