SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel

I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Ranger vibration on steering wheel and noise @ 110 Km/h

Check the idler arm and pittman arm, then the tie rod ends for ANY play. The pittman arm is the one on the steering gearbox that connects to the tie rod, and the idler arm is the one that connects from the tie rod to the frame. Replacing the parts is a pretty inexpensive and straightforward job, but you will need to have the wheels re-aligned afterwards.

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Corolla Wheel Alignment

The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.

Well your Caster should be +2.2degrees to +3.7degrees Your Camber should be -1.4 degrees to +.7 degree and I recommend it be set at a 0 to a -.3 degree Toe in at straight ahead to toed in 1/16th of an inch.

I have a problem with the brake equaliser, back left brake is not operating at the same level as all other 3 brakes


Hi Fran:
There could also be a minor problem associated with the left rear brake. Have you confirmed that all of the components are clean, in good condition, and functioning properly? Is the brake "grabbing"? Find a safe location like a vacant parking lot. Hold the steering wheel very lightly and at low speed, apply the brakes. Try to determine from the steering wheel reaction what it is that the brakes are doing. You could also hold the steering wheel firmly, pointing straight ahead, and sharply apply the brakes at low speed. Try to let the car tell you where the problem is.

I have a 2002 GMC Envoy. Just replaced passenger wheel bearing, both sway bars, both upper ball joints, outer tie rod-drivers side, & brakes all around. Now the car wants to walk all over the road, ...


I am wondering if you have checked and reset the steering geometry? After all that work the front wheel toe could be miles away from the ideal setting.

Mostly checking and adjusting the toe of the front wheels is beyond the scope of the home mechanic so after the sort of work you have done the first journey needs to be to the nearest trustworthy vehicle workshop offering the service.
Considering the list of work you have done it would be advisable to request a full alignment check rather than the basic toe check/reset.

The toe setting is not just important for predictable steering but also to prevent excessive and uneven tyre wear and reduce road noise and fuel consumption. When the toe setting is incorrect the tyres are effectively being pushed or dragged sideways and a tyre can be lost in a very short time.

An unwise mixture of tyre brands can produce similar symptoms. I call it a random lane change facility and perfectly legal and well-maintained cars can suffer from it to a potentially lethal degree by allowing tyre sales people sell the tyres they are making the most profit on that week instead of the ones matching the other tyres on the car.

99 Voyager - hard pull to right after alignment


is the steering wheel straight on the spokes ,reasdon is on the steering rack their is central point for the straight ahead position with a pre load to hold the vehicle in a straight line ,now if only one steering arm has been adjusted then this can cause this problem as the power steering valve is is then biased to one side ,how they work on a steering rack is similar to a cotton reel spool and the ends of the spool allow the oil pressure to push one way or the other so not aligned correctly on the track arms allows this spool valve to keep putting pressure on one side allowing the steering to pull to one side ,i could be wrong in this case as these sorts of problems can be perplexing to say the least and other problems can cause this but a quick check is look at the distance from the back of the wheel to the wing either side and see if one wheel is back.But i have had thses problems caused by the tyres out of whatever and made in china ,fitted genuine michelins and the problem went away

Car pulling to one side


I would say that the left hand brake caliper is not releasing and either needs replacing or have a repair kit fitted.

Or the constant velocity joint on the left is seizing up due to either road dirt ingress or a cracked bearing

Brakes
When you apply the brakes the piston inside the caliper is supposed to move out to apply pressure to the brake pads.
When you remove the braking effort it is supposed to relax allowing the pad to release
Yours is not doing that so it will cause the car to pull to one side.

Steering veers to the left?


Drive slowly down the middle of a straight road, let the steering wheel go and apply the brakes. If the car wants to turn by itself check your ball joints and shocks. If the car remains straight you may have an irregular wearing tire which causes it wonder at higher speeds.
I hope this helps
