Well this could be a few things.

The first thing you need to do is to get a front end alignment. This is one of those things best left to the professionals as it is a very specific process. Most places should charge about $40 for this (low end) so call around to get the right price.

A few other things you can look into that would cause a sway or pull in the steering are, but not limited to

A budge, ply separation, or an improperly balanced tire

a loose or worn tie rod ends

a bad wheel bearing

Well those are the most common. If you want to check them out before spending money on the alignment, Simply jack up the front of the van, and try to wiggle the tire in all directions, if you feel a wobble, it is likely a bearing issue (or a ball joint but that wouldn't explain the sway). Next remove the tires and do a visible inspection look for any imperfection or crack and feel for bulges.

Then while the tires are off, look at the tie rod ends to insure the boot is intact and that the area is well lubricated.

I hope this gives you a good start, please feel free to rate my response, and come on back if you need help repairing anything that comes up suring you inspection. And of course as always thanks for using FixYa.

Front end problems in stering had alined 4 times and stll drifts from side to side at 60 plus miles an hour and new tires where to look next??


Sway bar links, sway bar bushings, or the sway bar is broken. I would go back and retrieve my money. You would think with this problem(I'm sure you told them), they would have caught this. The first one probably aligned it, the others, just charged you. You have this in front and back. Drift is sway. I would have checked both.

My 95 Mercury Villager sways from side to side. What are some potential causes?


You have to be more specific about swaying.Is the steering not responsive enough? Or does it seem top-heavy? When you hit a bump on a slight turn,does it track badly?
If it's got looseness in the steering,letting it drift,it could be bad tie rod ends or just need alignment.Worn tires can cause mayhem also,along with bad shock absorbers or broken sway bar link bolts.don-ohio(:^)

Steering problem. It seems loose and allows the van to drift


check the sway bar links. the sway bar is the long solid bar that goes to each tire up front. the links are what connects the bar to the lower control arm. this is what controls the vehicle from swaying or drifting

How to change 1998 Plymouth grand Voyager front sway bars


unbolt the sway bar links from the control arms and the two brackets holding it to the frame. make sure if you jack it up jack up the front end. if you jack up one side and not the other and take the sway bar loose it will be loaded and could cause injury if not careful as long as both front tires are off the ground the sway bar will not be loaded and will be safe to deal with

Steering problem


Your power steering engine/ pully has gone bad. needs a replacement then.

Take care and do fix it on time before you get the steering rack damaged.

Good luck.
