At highway speed, tire out of balance or bent wheel. When stopping, warped rotor.

Probably your steering is out of alignment; or maybe a bent axle or wheelbase.

Loose steering: You notice how steering wheel is very easy to move and feels sloppy. It creates an difficult feeling on the highway because it seems you have no control of your car. POSSIBLE CAUSES: - Steering linkage is worn and parts need to be restored. - Steering linkage may be loose and need to be tightened. - Your steering box needs adjusting.

It is important to know the causes of bad car performance. In a Toyota Avalon, the symptoms of a bad steering rack are as follows, slips in steering, the car pulling to one side, and the steering wheel bounces up and down while driving.

I have found that the brake rotors are warped. Why, it could be a number of causes. However, I recently had mine turned for 15.00 ( Did the other work myself) and the vibration has gone away. Now I need to work on getting the suspension tightened back up. Hope this helps.

Lack of rotation, aggressive driving, or a worn steering/suspension component. Check the tie rods and ball joints.

Loose alignment is the most likely culprit. It could also be the servo if your car has got one.

If it varies with driving speed, look for an out-of-round tire. If it vibrates only when braking, you probably have a warped brake rotor.

Your power steering pump and or steering box may be about to give out on you.

bad bushings on the rack mount making it loose hence turning stering wheel will make it loose and bounce == Have the rack/box pipes been tampered with? Is it manual or power steering? Does this happen whilst driving or if the vehicle is stationery? www.powerbrakeandsteering.co.za
