Default Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

2 years later and I'm circling back to this issue because I still haven't solved it. I did try moving the wheels/tires from my 2001 LE to the 2005 GT, but the shaking remains. I'm back to suspecting where the CV axle connects to the intermediate shaft, but unfortunately I can't compare it to the 2001 LE because it is a non turbo and thus doesn't have the intermediate shaft.

The other thing that nobody has addressed it the clicking sounds that the steering is making. I will upload a video and see if anyone has any ideas about this.

Here's the video I made this morning so you can hear the steering click I'm talking about https://youtu.be/uopr46wW9rg

Check the A-arm rear bushings. It's a $3 part that's a nightmare to replace if you live in the rustbelt. If rusted, the captured nut inside the floor reinforcement likes to break loose and spin. Then you'll have to cut a hole in the floor to get at it.

If by A-Arm, you are referring to the control arms, I have replaced both and bushings already. It was one of the first things I tried to fix the wobble.

Didn't mention it in your video. Trying to find a different kind of problem I grabbed different components while causing the noise. Felt the slack.
