SOURCE: tilt steering play
i have the same problem with mine several times you have to pull the steering off and the spring loaded plate behind the wheel then set back in the column there are 3 torx type fine thread screws you have to tighten and this will take care of the side to side of the tilt wheel if not tightened properly you will have to repeat this procedure again and again good luck

I had same problem with 99 Durango.
It was an easy and cheap fix -- I went to AutoBeef.com and learned common problem with 98 & 99 Durango -- sounds exactly like your problem. I was encouraged to replace the PCM "Brain" and was advised of an online Refurbished PCM dealer located in Florida. You can google as I forgot the name. I called them and they confirmed an easy fix w only 3 screws to change out the brain. The cost was < $300.00 and my son & bro changed it out. Runs great ever since -- I was so grateful for AutoBeef.com for delievering this information to me. My car would die on me without warning -- totally unreliable and dealer and mechanics had no clue. Your problem sounds like mine -- call the PCM reburbishing company and see what they think.

This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!

I HAVE A 2003 DURANGO THAT DOES THE SAME, IT IS EITHER THE CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS (UPPER AND LOWER) OR THE TORSION BARS AND/ OR BUSHINGS!!!

chances are that noise is the ball joints telling you they are dry and have no grease and they should be replaces fairly soon
