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.

How to fix a loose steering wheel


First off, depending on how big your tires are above stock, you will always have play. You should check everything from upper and lower ball joints, tie-rods, idler arm, pitman arm to make sure these are all solid and working properly with no defects and that you have the correct geometry on your steering linkage for whatever size liftkit and tires you may have. Then you could check or upgrade to a stiffer steering stabilizer shock.

How do you tighten steering on 94 bronco


Hi:
Loose steering is caused by worn parts. You need to check for slop in the tie rod ends first, as they are a common wear item, and the rest of the steering linkage next. You can watch under the front of your bronco, as someone else slowly moves the steering wheel. if you see movement in a connecting joint before the tire moves, then that is a suspect. Also check out your front tires too. look for abnormal wear, to indicate a problem.
Hope you tighten things up!

Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book

Sloppy steering 96 Ford Bronco


You need to check all of you front steering components have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth. While you lay on the ground check all joints and components for play then check your steering shaft under the hood see how far steering wheel moves to each directions to when your tires start to move your gearbox has an adjustment on it that can be adjusted it looks like a screw with a nut at the bottom loosen nut a few turns and hold it with a wrench then take screwdriver and turn screw about 1/4 keep checking wheel for play you can tighten to much so keep checking that wheel turns back when you let go if you have any loose joints undernieth replace that part

Lift kits


if you have old shocks you can measure full out then full in and give that measurement to your lift company of choice. if not then measure from the center of the axle to the top of the wheel well, if your fenders are cut you can measure(on ground) from the top to bottom shock mount and give that measurement to your fav lift shock company. Good Luck
