[DML] Re:Shaky Steering



Sounds like the steering column bushing. It's located at the based of the steering column where it meets the firewall. If it's worn and come lose then this could cause what you are describing. It's not a costly repair, and pretty straightforward if you are mechanically inclined and have a friend.

Another possibility is that your steering column "crumple cage" as broken? There's a kind of cylindrical, thick-fence wire mesh that encloses the steering column and is supposed to collapse in the event of a collision. If this is broken through then it could cause your steering column to wobble. It's a soft metal and can be welded back together (which I did with mine), but the opinion on whether or not this is safe in the event of a collision varies.

Check out both possibilities and let us know. =)
