The wheels were probably overtorqued. Have the rotors turned and the wheels torqued correctly. The mechanic more than likely overtightened the lug nuts holding your wheels on. With all of the horror stories of people having their wheels come off while riding down the road, service garages and mechanics are probably being over cautious. If tight is good, then even tighter is better. Unfortunately, what happens is that they end up warping the brake rotors (the disks that your break pads pinch together on to make your car stop). The warped rotors then give you that pulsing effect when you brake. Newer cars have lighter weight rotors that are more susceptible to warping, and, if your rotors are old or have been turned on a lathe, they are narrower and weaker and can warp easier.

A steering system of the parallelogram type is normally fitted with a steering box assembly. You should check for excessive movement in the steering box itself. This can be done by having the vehicle on the ground, and feeling the "free play" in the steering wheel with the road wheels in the straight ahead position. While watching the wheels to see how much you can move the steering wheel, before the road wheels start to move. Check this amount of movement and report any excessive movement to your supervisor.

1. Sit at least 10 inches away from the steering wheel to avoid injury if the airbag deploys. 2. Keep your hands on the lower half of the steering wheel and use "pull push" steering to avoid having your arm thrown into your face, breaking your nose and possibly teeth if the airbag deployed.
