Steering shakes when i drve it


Hello:

A vibration in the steering can be caused by several things, but the first thing you should do is a visual inspection of the front tires and rims. Look for anything out of place , such as bulges on the tire tread or side, dents or bends in the wheels. Next you should inspect the steering components: while someone slowly turns the steering wheel side to side. Look for play or wear in the steering linkage, such as the tie rod ends, or rack and pinion unit, and look for tears in the CV joint boots, or leaking grease from that area. If you are not familiar with these items, usually a reputable shop will inspect your car for free, to let you know what they find. Last but not least, if you don't find any visable clues, have someone ride along to try to pinpoint the location of the vibration, either left or right, slowing down or speeding up, etc.
Good luck!

Does the rim size of a 95 Honda civic determine the size of the steering knuckle


No but the steering knuckle will determine the off set of the rim in use.. If there is excessive positive off set ,the rim will hit on the steering arm and possible the knuckle.. Talk to a tyre shop for advice as to what size rim to fit.

How to replace left control arm on 99 mercury cougar


Here's what I found on Yahoo answers:
For the driver's side: yes, you will have to raise the motor.
On all models, remove the front motor mount, Mark the position of the right engine mount, remove 3 right engine to mount bolts. remove one right engine mount to body nut. On all models hold the strut shaft with an 8 mm allen wrench, loosen top retaining nut 5 turns. Raise vehicle, remove ball joint to steering knuckle pinch bolt. seperate control arm ball joints from steering knuckle. Do NOT damage ball joint seal. Remove pinch bolt attaching steering knuckle to strut. Slide steering knuckle up on strut, Move transaxle to gain access to control arm nuts and bolts. remove 2 nuts and bolts and attaching control arm to subframe. Lifting up control arm remove.
Now this to mark the motor mount because you are supposed to use a powertrain alignment guage when putting back together. if not you can bind the motor in the unibody and make for a shaky ride.
that drivers side lower control arm calls for 4.3 hours where as the passenger side calls for 1.3 hours. So you can see what your in for.
BTW these instructions are taken straight from the Ford repair manual.

A mechanic told me that my tires keep wearing because of a metal arm that holds my back tires in place is bent on one side. I am not sure if this paints a clear enough picture. but any help would be...

Wheel hub assembly front 1997 sebring


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the front tire and wheel.
  3. Remove the steering knuckle assembly, as described previously.
  4. Remove the bolts attaching the hub/bearing assembly to the steering knuckle.
  5. Remove the hub/bearing assembly from the front of the steering knuckle. The bolt-in front wheel bearing used on the vehicle is transferable to a replacement steering knuckle, if the bearing is in serviceable condition. If the bearing will not come out of the steering knuckle, it can be tapped out using a soft-faced hammer.
  6. a567c9e.jpg

  1. Thoroughly clean all parts, including the hub/bearing assembly mounting surfaces on the steering knuckle.
  2. Install the replacement hub/bearing assembly onto the steering knuckle, aligning the bolt holes of the bearing flange to the knuckle.
  3. Install the attaching bolts and tighten evenly to make sure the bearing is square to the face of the steering knuckle. Tighten the attaching bolts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm) on Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring convertible and Breeze, or 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm) on Sebring coupe and Avenger.
  4. Install the steering knuckle assembly, as previously described.
  5. Install the tire and wheel.
  6. Lower the vehicle and check for proper operation.

raise vehicle, remove wheel(s), take off your brake caliper(s) (two bolts). hold caliper in place with wire/string out of the way careful with brake line (you don't want to damage that(don't actualy remove the brake line from the caliper either) . separate steering knuckle from strut. (two large bolts on the strut) you may need to separate tie rod end from steering knuckle as well or if you can just push it far enough to the side, then remove the cotter pin from end of cv axle its the huge nut in the center of the wheel hub. then you remove the nut from the cv axle, now you're able to remove the wheel side of cv axle. do so by bending the cv at the (outermost boot and pushing out on the steering knuckle,there are teeth between the two you will have to line up when installing. next is the tricky part getting it out of the transaxle. you'll want a rubber mallet & long flat head screw driver to carefully tap the cv with the mallet while very carefully prying with the screwdriver. (small prybar prefered.cv is held in by a circlip basically a small circular piece of metal thats too big for the hole its in. once you get the cv seperated from the transaxle/transmission. remove it from vehicle and install in reverse order of removal. making sure all teeth line up and the cv clips firmly into trans. very important put in a new cotter pin when you get the cv though the hub and nut very tight . good luck (repair based on 93 eclipse gs 1.8l manual trans. other models similar.)
hope this is helpful. Good Luck ; )
