My brother had one of these, nice bike go like the clappers when the carbs have been cleaned. Anyway, as for the over steer, a lot of the time if the electronic stabiliser on the front forks are not working correctly they cause all sorts of steering problems. Sometimes going to a different type of tyre can make a huge difference too.

What do i do to lower front end? There is way to much space between the tires and wheel wells.


don't go on looks but instead measure the height from the road to the door sills at the front and rear of the car
that will show if the car is actually up at the front
IT could appear high because of smaller diameter wheels fitted to the front increases the guard to wheel clearance in opposite to bigger wheels make the car look lowered as it reduces the clearance
having decided that the wheels are the same all round and the car is actually high at the front, the fix is best carried out by an accredited suspension specialist shop as it may be faulty installation or incorrect parts used previously

How do I fix play in the steering?


This could be due to a number of causes, as the steering is a chain of linkages or joints:

-steering wheel securing nut loose
-steering shaft universal joint worn or loose
-steering box mountings worn or loose (common)
-tie rod inner ball joints worn or loose (if any)
-tie rod ends worn (most likely)

Jack up the front of the car both sides and secure it with axle stands or some other safe means, have someone hang on to the steering wheel, and waggle each road wheel in and out by gripping it at 9 and 3 o'clock. You should be able to feel the slack. Have another person use a strong flashlight to try to see where this is occurring.

You may need to take it to a front suspension shop as sometimes special tools are needed, and you will need a wheel alignment anyway.

My steering wheel sticks when turned all the way


It may be in the steering box and pitman arm which is the arm that comes off the steering box, if you have a rack in pinion set up you may have to have it check out as well front end alignment should have caught that.. Idle arms should also be checked. If not then look into steering Colum tilt wheel make sure nothing is warn out and working properly. Depends on year and make will determine what setup you have which was not mentioned so Hope this helps
God bless

Bmw 740i 1998 steering wheel isn't straight


When parts in the front end get worn out your adjustments in the front end change from there original settings giving you steering problems and changing steering wheel position. If you want it straight the correct way to do it is Get the front end checked out. Any worn parts should be replaced then have alignment done. While doing alignment there last step should be to center the steering wheel.

Steering is very sloppy on my Saturn sl1


sounds like an internal problem in the steering rack, the front end will feel tight on inspection but there will be a lot of play in the steering.

Steering was loose while driving and turning, then suddenly would **** to the right


It sounds like you have at least one bad tie rod end....this is the most likely problem, but I have listed other things to check out.

To figure out which tie rod end(s) are bad, you need to jack the front end up and put it on jackstands, or if you have a buddy that works at a shop that can put it on a lift, that is even better.

With the front end jacked up and the steering unlocked, have somebody turn the wheel left and right and watch as the tie rods (the rods that actually "steer" the wheels) move - there should be no "play" or looseness in either the inner or outer tie rod ends.... the large turnbuckle looking ends on the rods. Most often, it is the outer tie rod ends that go bad, and if it is pulling right on you the one on the right side is most suspect. Also try and hold one wheel at a time still while your buddy steers and see if there is any slop.... there should be ZERO play or slop between the steering wheel and the front wheels.

Bad ball joints can also cause steering problems. With the front still jacked up, grab a wheel and try and shake it up and down, in and out. If you feel it move, replace both the upper and lower balljoints on that wheel (only one set may be bad, but if so, the other is certainly worn!).

Bad wheel bearings can also cause steering problems, and allot of shaking and vibration when you are driving. If you can shake your jacked up wheel any which way and it is loose, or if you spin the wheel and hear allot of crunching noises, you have bad wheel bearings.

All of these problems are serious, and if you have a sudden complete failure of the bad part while you are driving, you can lose control of your truck. You need to determine which of the above is causing your problem and take care of it immediately. The best answer is to go to a qualified mechanic, but if you are up to doing it yourself, be careful and don't try and do it all alone.

Bumping nose from front end {passenger side} when steering wheel is turned to the left.had car looked at they seem to think it's a busted stru,but it doesn't sit low,and also the tire is showing wear on...


Sounds more like a tie rod end is bad. Try a reliable shop that specializes in front end repair (any place but FIRESTONE). The tire wear could be due to the loose tie rod end throwing the car out of alignment.

To much play in 1999 dodge Ram 1500 steering wheel, how can I fix


Sounds like worn out steering parts.
Jack up the front end of the truck. Move each front tire side to side and look at the steering linkages.
Normally, when you turn the tire on one side, the tire on the othe side should move at the same time.
It's the best way to find out what steering components are worn out.
