I have a Nissan y12 wingroad and when I turn the steering wheel am getting a grinding noise. I changed linkage bushing and ball joint also grease. The noise still there


Hi , if the wheels are turning and your getting a grinding noise it could be your actual front wheel bearings that needs replacing. If you have power steering it could be the power unit that's gone if one is fitted.

The steering wheel no longer moves the front wheels to move the car


Year/make/model??? If the steering wheel turns but both front wheels don't, suspect internal rack and pinion/steering box failure or broken steering shaft u-joint or possible broken steering linkage. ( Pitman arm/ center link etc)

06 Murano steering shakes when accelerating around 60 mph. Just balanced tires, still shakes. Doesn't shake while coasting same speed


Do you feel the shaking in the steering wheel as well? If so, it may be a worn steering linkage. If not, have your CV joints and U-Joints checked and, if you have a 4WD, have the transfer case output shaft bearing checked.

My 2003 GMC Jimmy has excessive vibration when accelerating hard or at speeds of over 80 km/hr - 50 MPH. Could this be a u-joint issue?


If the vibration is in the steering wheel, and you are in 2wd then chances are it is not you're u-joints. I would get other car on a Lift, check ball joints and steering linkage for play. You may jut need to balance your tires

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.

Death wobble in 4x4 van


Check you steering and duspension system. Check ball joints and steering linkages. With the vehicle in the floor have someone move the steering wheel side to side. Not whole turns just side to side movement while you look at the steering linkage to identify any loose parts. Then raise the vehicle and check your ball joints by grabbing top and bottom of the tires and shaking them.

My 94 Silverado pulls very hard to the right, and is eating up my front left tire like nothing. what other than alignment can be going wrong?


You could have a bad tie rod end, Idler arm, pitman arm, wheel bearing or ball joint. All of these will normally cause a vibration also. Check by jacking the front end one side at a time and moving the tire back and forth on front and back and in and out on top and bottom. Either watch or have someone else watch the steering assembly for movement and where it is. If there is no unusual movement, it is more than likely an alignment problem or tire problem.

How do you put in a ball joint in a 2001 sebring convertible


It depends on exactly which ball joint of the 3 per side your changing, but here are the details.

COMPRESSION LOWER ARM & LATERAL LOWER ARM ASSEMBLIES
Removal
1. Loosen compression lower arm ball joint nut. Using steering linkage puller, separate ball joint and
knuckle. Remove nut, bolts and compression lower arm assembly. Remove dust cover.
2. Remove stay. Remove shock absorber lower mounting bolt. Loosen lateral lower arm ball
joint and knuckle nut. Using steering linkage puller, separate ball joint and knuckle. Remove nut, bolt and
lateral lower arm assembly. Remove dust cover.
Inspection
Using preload socket, ensure breakaway torque for compression lower arm ball joint is 4-22 INCH lbs. (0.5-2.5
N.m) for 2000 models. On 2001 models, breakaway torque is 22-54 INCH lbs. (2.5-6.1 N.m). Ensure
breakaway torque for compression lateral lower arm ball joint is 13 INCH lbs. (1.5 N.m). Check compression
lower arm, lateral lower arm, dust covers, and bushings for damage and wear.
Installation
To install, reverse removal procedure. Use NEW ball joint nuts. Lubricate lip and inside of dust cover with
multipurpose lubricant. Using installer, install dust cover. Check front wheel alignment.
UPPER ARM ASSEMBLY
Removal
Using steering linkage puller, loosen upper arm ball joint and knuckle nut. Remove self-locking nut. Remove upper arm and upper arm shaft assembly. Remove dust cover.
Inspection
Using preload socket, ensure breakaway torque for upper arm ball joint is 3-13 INCH lbs. (0.3-1.5 N.m).
Replace upper arm assembly when measured value exceeds specification. Check upper arm, dust cover, and
bushings for damage and wear.
Installation
1. To install, reverse removal procedure. Use NEW self-locking nuts. Lubricate lip and inside of dust cover
with multipurpose lubricant. Using Ball Joint Installer (MB990800), install dust cover.
2. Ensure upper arm shaft assembly is installed at indicated angle. Verify upper arm shaft
assembly installation. Check front wheel alignment.

Once you have the correct arm off and a replacement joint (if available, some are not serviceable and require the arm to be replaced) then you will need a press or a ball joint press to change the joint. Such as

1999 f-150 squeak in suppension


Check the ball joints and steering linkage for wore out parts. Jack the truck up and move the tire back and forth to see if it wobbles and watch the upper and lower ball joints. You can do the same with the steering linkage by moving tie rod ends up and down to see if they pop up. Everything should be tight with little or no play at all.
