HI, it sounds to me like your talking about your track rod end this is what turns the wheel when you turn the steering wheel you will need to get someone at a garage to do this for you as you need to get the tracking set up correct after else you wont be able to drive.

they use a laser machine to set the tracking on a special machine it isnt something you can do yourself at home as the machine cost several thousands so its not the kind of tool you would have plus its huge and you would need a whole garage to store it in.

the part itself the track rod end is cheap to buy and cheap to get fitted and should only take an hour for a mechanic to fit and then an hour to set the tracking.

not getting this done will cause that part to break and then this will cause the wheel to buckle in on itself then this will damage a lot of your car it will damage the wing and could damage the brakes and end up costing you a fortune so this is something you need to get done as soon as possible.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

pz rate this post as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

1998 voyager front tires wobble back and forth when jacked up. Is it tie rod or ball bearing?


If it wobbles with your hands at 9 and 3, its a tie rod end.
If it wobbles with your hands at 12 and 6, its a wheel bearing.

Front end shakes constantly


have you checked the tires to see if they are balanced? checked the tires to see if tread is separating? tie rods for looseness? shocks to see if they are bad???

There is a cluncking noise in the front end when moving the steering wheel front wheel drive


If you are only hearing this clunking sound when you are turning then you need to have your cv axles replaced. Also known as half-axles. In a truck, these are known as the universal joints. You can take your vehicle to the local tire/front end clinic and they will tell you whether or not, it is worth the fix.

My 2005 chevy silverado 1500 hd 4x4. I am experiencing a slight but annoying wobble in the front end at slow speed. The steering wheel is rock steady but the shaking can be felt through the steering wheel....


Chevy is having problems with the steering columns on these models. Feels like a jiggle in the steering wheel when you hit a bump of any kind. Cost about $75 at the dealer for a new part.

My Silverado front end wobbles at any speed, not affected braking


Couple of checks , mud in front rims will give you a wobble. Front tire cord seperation or loose wheel nuts. , Wore out tie rod end, front wheel bearing play, or a weight has fallen off the rim and it needs balancing. If it is vibrating your steering wheel, have the front end looked at right away.

Very bad shaking after hitting a bump


this is known as death wobble because it feels like you are going to die but slowing down will end it.

The cause for death wobble are:
  1. Worn or loose tie rod ends on your steering linkage.
  2. Worn or loose trackbar bushings or tie rod ends on the trackbar itself.
  3. front end needs alignment.
  4. and many others but the common reasons are listed above.
try to realign the front end. If it doesnt help, then you do indeed have worn steering / suspension components.

Death wobble


My Death Wobble started immediately after I installed a set of Coil Spring Spacers (to lift 1.75 inches) on my stock 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. Turned out, the DW was because while changing the height, I also lowered the CASTER angle in the front end. So, to fix it, I could have purchased a set of eccentric bolts for $50+. Instead I went out and purchased a piece of 1.5 inch flat bar for $10 from OSH. I cut out 4 1.5 inch squares. Then i drilled 7/16 inch holes centerline, but close to one side (in exactly the same place) on all for squares. I then removed the lower control arm bolts, nuts and washers. I installed these square offset washers I made so the front axle would be pushed forward (to increase the Caster angle). The toe setting changed a bit, so I reset them to about 1/8 inch toe in. After driving my Jeep, I noticed there is no more DW. The steering wheel was off center, but after 3 attempts, I have that perfectly centered. I have every intension of having the alignment checked, but not till after I find the new tires I want. If anyone is interested, I can draw out and photograph the cure and send it to you. My e-mail is bb62471(at)yahoo(dot)com.
