1999 For Explorer XLT , 4.0 liter SOHC, AWD 4x4 , the front right wheel wobble's at any speed


Could be loose lugs/ not torqued to spec. , bad wheel bearing, bad ball joint(s), bad steering arm joint, bad rack and pinion power steering unit, or other steering components. Check lugs first, loosen and retighten while slightly jacked up to take some pressure off of the wheel use a torque wrench set to 100 ft lbs. Then raise wheel about and inch off the floor, use a crowbar to pry up on the wheel several times while observing your ball joints for excessive movement. Very much play at all, replace ball joints, works better to replace them as a pair, top and bottom. If OK, raise wheel a bit further, and grab the top and bottom of the wheel and push/pull in and out to check for play in the wheel bearing. Pretty much any play, replace wheel bearing. If ok, do the same with a side to side motion while observing the steering control arm. Look for play. Play in the joint, replace joint. Play in other steering components, replace suspect component. That's about all the stuff could make the wheel wobble unless the rim itself is bent.

Shaking steering wheel


sounds like a wheel bearing has failed or the trackrod, jack up car and feel for play by wobbling each wheel left to right and up and down, if you can look over the wheel you could see play somewhere unless it's the main wheel bearing

2001 Mitzubishi Montero Sport Steering Box


The steering box has an adjustment screw or bolt which is kept from turning by a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut and turn the screw or bolt
so as to reduce the play in your steering. The adjusting bolt is generally
located on top of the steering box.

Play in stering linkage


The most common of all problems in a steering system is excessive steering wheel play. Steering wheel play is normally caused by worn ball sockets, worn idler arm, or too much clearance in the steering gearbox. Typically, you shou Id not be able to turn the steering wheel more than 1 1/ 2 inches without causing the front wheels to move. If the steering wheel rotates excessively, a serious steering problem exists.

An effective way to check for play in the steering linkage or rack-and-pinion mechanism is by the dry-park test. With the full weight of the vehicle on the front wheels, have someone move the steering wheel from side to side while you examine the steering system for looseness. Start your inspection at the steering column shaft and work your way to the tie-rod ends. Ensure that the movement of one component causes an equal amount of movement of the adjoining component.

Watch for ball studs that wiggle in their sockets. With a rack-and-pinion steering system, squeeze the rubber boots and feel the inner tie rod to detect wear. If the tie rod moves sideways in relation to the rack, the socket is worn and should be replaced.

Another way of inspecting the steering system involves moving the steering components and front wheel BY HAND. With the steering wheel locked, raise the vehicle and place it on jack stands. Then force the front wheels right and left while checking for component looseness.

Hi, How do you adjust float in steering wheel is it done at steering box or is there another trick Thanks Chris


WHat do you mean by "float in steering wheel"? Do you mean play at the steering wheel? If so, there probably are no adjustments on that car. Some older cars used steering boxes which could be adjusted, but Every Hyundai I've ever seen used rack and pinion steering which is usually not adjustable. You should check for play in the whole system. Have someone rock the steering wheel back and forth and look at the steering components to see if there is any play in them. If it is rack and pinion, hold your hand on the boots that are on either side while the wheel is being rocked to check for play in the inner tie rod ends. Replace any parts with play in them.
