I would say have a look at your Track rod ends or have them inspected plus have the tracking looked at.

2003 Saturn Ion and the steering wheel has some slop in it how do I fix it or what could be wrong


The steering gear box has an adjustment screw on the top cover. Loosen the lock nut and turn the screw clockwise until the slop is reduced. Jack the front end up so both wheels turn freely. Push the wheel right and left while watching the suspension components. If they move up and down. The control arm and ball joints need replacing. Have it done at a good shop that does alignments.

2" of slop in the


Since the slop is gone, it is probably an alignment problem now-check for binding but in most cases it is a caster issue.

I had a new rack put on my 93 5.0 mustang. The steering wheel is turned to the right when driving straight, not pulling. Seems like a little play in steering wheel. How do you fix this? Thanks


Seems to me the steering wheel was not aligned to the central position when the new rack was installed. This may be a job that needs to be rectified by the installer. If the steering is sloppy thisoo may need to be looked at by the installer.

I have a 97 K1500 with some loose steering issues. I have replaced everything that has anything to do with steering except steering gear and powerstearing pump and it all helped a lot but it still seems to...


Have the front end alignment checked as it may the cause of wandering. With the truck parked and the steering centered, but the engine running, wiggle the steering wheel back and forth while watching the left front wheel. It should respond to the steering action without any observable slack. Have someone watch both front wheels while doing this and see if there is slack between the two wheels. Any slack here is indicative of slop in the cross-wheel coupling. Hope this helps!

Front wheels shake when I hit a bump in road


Pitman arm and tie rod ends and bail joints.The three main causes of front end shake after hitting a bump.There's so much slop that when you hit a bump it shakes violently from one end of the slop to the other.Very dangerous!You need to get this fixed now!
Get someone to turn the steering wheel while holding onto a front wheel and just watch for stuff that moves.Turn left and right and you'll see what's the worst for wear.The connections at the steering box arm(Pitman) and at the wheels(Tie rods) will be what moves the worst.Hope this helps?Autozone has a kit for the pitman for $100,probably be $600 at a shop.

Front end vibration


there is a bar that goes from the front axle on the passenger side to the frame on the driver side possibly called a track bar. have someone turn the steering wheel left and right while watching for slop. also look for slop on the rest of the steering system. after that if nothing is found have a front end alighnment done.
