More than likely, Rita has a bad CV or U-joint. Get her on a lift and have someone take a look.

Toyota corona AT170, how to fix steering wobble


It starts out as a slight shimmy from side to side that you can just barely feel in the steering wheel at about 25 mph. As the side-to-side action gains momentum it practically rips the wheel out of your hands. It feels and sounds as though the front axle is going to get tossed out from under your Jeep at any moment. Looking out the window at the frontend reveals the tires dancing back and forth like a couple of cancan girls. Other motorists scatter at the sight of your out-of-control Jeep. Speeding up to around 50 mph or bringing your Jeep to a complete stop is usually the only way to stop the shaking. But not for good.

To permanently eliminate the death wobble and avoid other handling problems, here are a few tips; this work in Jeep models:


- The most common culprit of wobble and erratic handling is worn-out components. Tie rod ends and ball joints should have dust boots intact. Grease the joints periodically if they have fittings.

- You can check for slop in your steering by jacking up the front of your Jeep and grasping a tire at the nine and three o'clock positions. Wiggle it front to back. Slop will be noticeable. It helps to have a buddy watch the tie rod ends for looseness.

- Loose or worn wheel bearings can also cause poor handling. They can be checked by grasping the wheel at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions. If there is any movement, the bearings should be repacked or replaced in the case of later-model Jeeps with unit bearings.

- Here's a common problem on CJs and YJs with spring-overs. The drag link on this Jeep has been bent to clear the spring and a drop pitman arm has been installed in an attempt to correct for the lift. This won't cause the frightening wobble, but bumpsteer will result. The drag link should be close to parallel to the tie rod and axlehousing.

- TJs are notorious for bent steering linkages. They come from the factory with a bend for clearance around the axle (arrow). It's often hard to tell if it has been bent more after a rough trail. Always inspect your steering linkages for impacts and bends after a trail ride.

- Loose U-bolts will wreak havoc on your Jeep's handling. Keep 'em tight and check them frequently after installing a lift kit.

- Rubber bushings may flex better than urethane but rubber will rot and fall apart. Inspect control arm, leaf spring, and shackle bushings. They locate the axles, so any slop will affect handling.

- The '76-'86 CJs have a slop-prone steering shaft. The slop will cause the Jeep to wander all over the road causing the driver to saw the steering wheel back and forth to go straight. The shaft can be upgraded with a U-joint-style unit.

- If you install longer shackles on your leaf-sprung Jeep you will probably need shims like these on the front axle to correct the caster. Shackle-reversal kits often provide increased caster, which improves high-speed control.



Hope helps.

06 Wrangler...steering pump noise..whines when turned to lock...told by chrysler that all wranglers do it...bs..is it a known item that all wranglers make noise like the steering pump is out of fluid????


No pump should be noisy, though if only noisy when wheels are turned all the way to either side, that is normal. Once turned to the point where the pump first begins to make noise you really don't have any more wheel movement and turning the steering wheel further does very little except cause the noise. I've found that on many Jeeps the steering stop bolts on the lower control arms are set too far in and can be turned back a bit. That may help somewhat.

Steering wheel turns more than the wheels turn. fight to keep straight


with engine off, have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth. Check under the hood along the steering shaft for loose u-joints. check the steering box, check joints at either end of drag link(from steering box down to passenter wheel) and tie rod ends. do this with engine off so wheels dont turn. and by the way, jeeps have sloppy steering boxes from the factory, so don't expect excellent, tight steering when you're done. good luck

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004 front end clunking


It would be kind of hard to explain, but you may want to check your wheel bearings. Sounds like your wheel is binding. If you jack the front up, grab your tire, and shake. Sort of like you are trying to turn the wheel your self with out the steering wheel. Then do the same up and down. If you have a lot of play, then your wheel bearing is shot. And with a 4WD, you have to replace it because its sealed, where as on a 2WD, you can tighten them. For the pitman arm, and the gear box, you may have to get a haynes manual to find. But the gear box will be the box that your steering shaft goes into and connects to the tierods. Not too hard to find.

Bearings may be bad or where the bearings ride on the axle may be scored. Jeeps are known for soft axles.
