Re: [DML] Steering column vibration when braking

Have you replaced or trued the rotors?

I'm still getting a rythmic pulsation in the steering wheel/column when  
braking, especially when only braking moderately. It gets a little better when 
 braking hard.

Please read the following carefully, so as not to  recommend an action that 
I've already taken. I HAVE:

Brake calipers  completely replaced
Brake discs replaced
Rubber brake lines  replaced
Brake master cylinder replaced
Upper AND lower control arm  bushings replaced
Lower control arms boxed in
Tie rod ends replaced  about 5-6 years ago, but not a whole lot of miles on 

I have NOT  YET:

Replaced the steering column bushing (and it is gone)
Replaced  the steering rack

I'm at the point where I'm thinking this is a  combination of the worn away 
column bushing and slop in the steering  rack.

What say you?
