Re: Steering problem

Can you clarify? Vibration in the wheel? Or just in the front end? Any noise?

Re: Steering problem

that's not the issue....the pump whining is normal...these cars are notorious for it...the best you can do is to use a pump or baster (like a turkey baster) and get the old fluid out of the PS..then refill it with fresh fluid with no squeal...

as for the vibrations...get on the ground and look at all the ball joint boots...they may just need to be regreased...

Bad balljoints are a ticking time bomb. Going speeds of 35- and above and haveing a balljoint fail could be horrible

Nothings hard when you know how to do it. But to answer your question, no they're not hard. Do research lots of it, google, you tube, anything. To learn I guess will take to know this, are you a visual learner then look up videos on you tube, I love my steeda ball joints, they're awesome. And you can get them with stock suspension, theyll also help you turn easier. So to recap the answer to your question yes it's easy, anyone can do it.

Re: Steering problem

Go to an alignment shop and ask them to check it for you. Around here all of the shops check for free. If you don't need an alignment or parts there is no charge.

You WILL need an alignment after you start swapping out front end parts.

Strange noises or shaking, or tires are not being used right.
