Look at steering shaft movement and compare to pittman arm movement. (input vs output on steering gear) If you have excess input with little output replace the steering gear box

A 2000 jeep grand Cherokee limited, bad wobble I replaced tires, had them aligned and balanced replaced inner and outer tie-rod ends, track bar sway bar bushings, steering assist, ball joints .


wobble of the steering is a wheel alignment problem regardless of having an alignment done
if your vehicle has a "live"front axle ( not independent suspension) the alignment is fixed to toe in toe out settings by the manufacturer
however spring sag and pivot pin(king pin bearings)wear alters that setting
There are devices available on the market that can be fitted by accredited suspension service shops that allow the alteration of the castor and camber settings ( you have a castor wobble) so talk with these shops and get ideas of what you can do
if it has independent suspension these settings can be easily set and should be set to around 1 to 1 1/2 degrees positive with toe in set to around 1/8 ti 1/4 "
a point that most alignment shops don't mention is that the rear end has to be aligned first so that the steering wheels are in the same "track" otherwise the front alignment is a waste if time as the vehicle will tend to run sideways down the road
it is an extra cost but well wort the expense when chasing a problem
next point --if the cv or "U" joints are failing then they will tend to have hard stops when steering and this will set of steering problems
lastly , big wide tyres are hard to align because of the amount of rubber on the road and to get the comprise between correct alignment and reduced tyre wear is hard to achieve

Vibration at 70 MPH.


Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

Shake and shimmy in a 1997 Silverado. They replaced the pitman arm and steering arm yesterday and 2 wheel aliignment.


Sounds like you need another shop, Most of the items that would cause your problem should be found by the shop alignment tech. Some things to check, tires: mismatched size or type, separating belts. bent, warped or unbalanced wheels, steering box play (internal slop), loose steering box from frame, congealed fix a flat in one of the tires, worn out or broken shocks, loose wheel bearings, problem could be in the rear tires and felt through the seat. if shimmy is while braking , your rotors will need surfacing or replacing. Not a lot of info was provided. 2 wheel drive or 4, big tires or stock, how quickly did problem start... Good luck

I feel and hear a knocking in my steering wheel when turning or going over bumps


It sounds like you have either a loose ball joint or something loose in your steering. watch the steering while someone turns in back and forth. Look for any play. The idler arm is the notorious part on GM trucks. If you have to replace any steering part other than the idler arm or the pitman arm, you will have to have the front end aligned. If the steering all looks good, jack it up one side at a time with the jack under the lower control arm and try to rock the tire with your hands at 12 and 6 o'clock. Next, use a prybar to try to "lift" the tire. This checks the ball joints. If there is any play rocking it, they are bad. If there is more than a little (1/4" or less) play with the prybar, they are bad. Of course, use caution jacking and be sure to place a jackstand so it will catch the truck if it should slip off of the jack or the jack fail. Good luck.

Tires need to be balanced. Take it to a tire shop and ask them to balance all 4 wheels. Problem will be fixed.
