Bought this 2 1/2 years ago just as a work car. Since then the steering has always been kind of loose on it. Over time the issue has gotten worse and now it drives like an old dump truck. I’ve changed the control arms with new ball joints only because the bushings were shot.
Couple weeks ago, I changed inner and outer tie rods both sides. I could see the inner tie rod had alot of play in it so I thought for sure that was the problem.
Just today, I crawled underneath and checked the subframe(engine cradle) whatever you want to call it. The bolts are tight and the bushings are in good shape, no rotting etc…
The tires are brand new, struts are fine, car passes the bounce test with flying colors and rides just fine. The only thing I can think of is a sticking caliper but the car brakes and tracks straight both regular driving and stopping.
Bottom line, the car feels as if something underneath is moving independently from the rest of it. Sometimes feels sketchy and I’m not sure what’s next for it. The car has 101K miles and 3.8 engine.
