Hi. Please call your nearest Toyota dealer. Give the service dept your vehicle identification number (all 17 digits); the metal arm that you are speaking of may be replaced for free, under a recall program. It is commonly called the "relay rod". I hope this helps you out.

Front right tire wobbles as if out of balance at speeds of 60-65 mph even after getting it balanced.


Assuming the wheel and mounted tire is balanced and the wheel is not bent would point to play in the front end suspension ball joints (control arm ,steering arm, tie rod), worn suspension bushings, or worn strut cartridges. However, some balancing is done at low revolutions rather than high speed balancing. The tire itself could have a belt that is separating in the tire that gets worse the faster it goes. Was the tire dismounted and remounted? Do you see a noticeable odd wear pattern on the tread? With the car up on a jackstand, grab the wheel at 12 and 6 o'clock and try to shake looking for play; then do the same thing at 9 and 3 o'clock. Check that all of the rods rods are tight especially near the ball joint and the bushings have not deteriorated. Loose wheel lug bolts/nuts are another cause.

I have a 95 T100. It has a bad wobble in the steering wheel when I turn left lightly(keeping on road whith large crown). Rotated tires and found that the inside of the pasengers side tire was worn in a...


indicates failing or incorrectly adjusted wheel bearings
contrary to popular belief wheel bearings have to have a slight preload adjustment to
a-- keep the oil from leaking out of the bearing seal
b--- compensate for the gyro action of the wheel ( flywheel ) when the plane of the spin is altered ( changing steering direction)
if the bearings are not correctly adjusted the wheel will develop a wobble similar to what a top develops as it slows down roads that have a high crown require a different wheel alignment setting for the camber so a wheel alignment may be in order
check the tie rod joints as well but normally a bad ball joint will cause the wobble in the straight ahead position at speeds approaching 30mph or better

Loose steering wheel shaft on 97 EXP. when I hit a bump i get the death wobble I checked everything else and and so did pep boys, tire discounters and bob somerell Tires,all is good. Has anyone had this...


Hello, Sir is your 1997 Ford Expedition a 4X4? It sounds like the drag line and it's ball joints.
There is a bent heavy steel arm at the end of steering box. On the end of this pitman arm is the drag link and the drag link is hook to each front hub with a ball joint on each end and the pitman arm. This way when the steering wheel is turning both wheels in the front will follow each other.
If the ball joint are wore out on the drag link this will cause the front wheels to wobble.

Need to get the Ford Exp off the ground where the front wheels are free of a load. Now, just grab one of the front wheels and move it back and forth. There a good possiblity it rattle like marble in a car.
Also, check the upper and lower control arms that attached to each front hub. There are hugh ball joint in each control arm, upper and lower on each of the Ford Exp. Two per side four all together.
I hope this help you. GB...stewbison

I have trouble steering...the truck wanders over the road...i have replaced idler arms, pitman arm, center link, shocks, brakes, new tires, front end alignment, bearings...the right front tire sits...


when the steering wheel is centred, the front wheels should both point slightly inwards.
after the amount of parts changed, i would recommend that you get the tracking checked at a garage using the proper, calibrated measuring systems, to make sure that the steering is set up properly and safely.

I failed the safety inspection ,they said it was the front axle? what is this


They must have said more than its the front axle,
bearing?
Seal?
Oil leak?
CV boot?
freeplay ?
Cracked?

Either way it will need fixing as it is the axle for the front wheels, and you cant drive if you cant steer.

1995 camry front end wobbles at any speed including steering wheel shake


You probably need to get the tires balanced. One of the balancing weights may have come off.
Make sure the lugnuts are tight.

My 1995 toyota trucks key wont turn in the ignition.


make sure the tranny is in park and there is no pressure on the front tires. when you park and in a hurry you put the truck in park but not fully
push the shifter hard into park while turning the key, if no luck try turning the steering wheel in either direction to take any stress off the steering wheel lock. try these two things and see how it goes

S430 Mercedes - Front end shaking at 55+


It sounds like you have either a broken steel belt in your tire or a worn out idler arm in your steering assembly. Other causes may be a bent wheel, a flat spot on the tire or worst case your brake rotor / wheel hub may be loose. If the rotor / wheel hub is loose you may have severly damaged wheel bearings. Good luck...
