Sounds like either the camber or caster is off on your alignment or possable you got your steering gear box adjustment too tight .. this will cause it to not return to center.. thanks and holler if you have more..

99 ford ranger when turning have a vibration in steering wheel rebuilt front end and still does it brand new tires so it anit that drives fine just when turning has a vibration


Eliminating steering linkages and tires as a possibility, the only things remaining to check are WHEEL BEARINGS (likely culprit on Ford trucks), brake rotors (cheap just to buy new ones and replace while servicing or replacing the wheel bearings), and loose or worn shock absorbers.

Rack pinion steering


There is a steering arm joining the two front wheels, if the tie rod ends have come loose it may result in only one wheel turning.

I have a daewoo nabira 2000 lately i have had a problem,when i turn hard left the car wants to keep going around to left,the steering wheel doe'snt come back by itself and manually have steer it...



  • You need to jack the front end up and inspect it. You have something hanging up. A tie rod might be sticking/grabbing on something. Check the stabilizer bar good too. When you have the front end up grab the tie rod and move it from one side to other and check for any sloppy play. Make sure to have the vehicle secured with bricks behind the rear wheels and the entire front end on jack stands when doing this for safety purposes and also so someone can turn the steering wheel while you inspect things. You have a hangup, front end damage you can't see or the power steering is going out. Having the problem focused during turning one direction only I am thinking it's a hang up. Keep me up to sped on your progress so I can further assist.

How do I align the steering after I replace the steering gear box so I have equal rotations on the steering wheel from left to right on a 1992 chevy astro van?


with the front of the vehicle raised in the air (with jack stands underneath), turn your steering wheel lock to lock, counting how many times the steering wheel does one complete rotation..........halve this number and rotate the steering wheel the opposite way...this will be the approximate middle of the steering rack movement

One important ppoint to note that not all items are built exactly, so you will require a wheel alignment after any change in steering or suspension components to be sure that everything is running true and correct

Steering is hard to turn


If it is hard to turn in both directions check power steering pump fluid level. Also with both front wheels off the ground key on engine off, turn the tires manually at one of the front tires and turn with the steering wheel engine off. Check for binding (they will require effort to turn) you are looking for a change in effort.

You might have a loose or bad steering or drive ability issuse..Jack up the front end and check you lower ball joints and front steering ends I bet you'll find your problem there or the steering part its self is loose.

Steering loose


at the end of the steering wheel there is your steering gear box on the top of the gearbox in the middle you will see a screw and a nut you need a wrench to lossen the nut and a screwdriveer to tighten it up. maybe your front end is loose you should have that checked out
