I guess it could be tie-rods, but that would affect the toe quite a bit if it was severe enough to off-center the wheel. That should make the steering feel tight or loose, and the OP doesn't mention anything. The rack moving around wouldn't do that, it would just off-center the wheel with no effect on toe. It also doesn't need to mean the rack is flapping in the breeze, just that it's loose enough at one or both ends to shift position when loaded up.TooMuchControl wrote: ↑Sat Apr 23, 2022 11:07 amI must have typed and deleted three possibilities while doing this. Deleting after thinking it through.
What gets to me, is the steering continues to be dead-on, but the wheel is off C.
This has to be a seized tie rod. Has to be.... Would think anything else would be constantly loose and cause wandering on the road?
I had someone move the steering wheel while I went under and looked at everything and it all seems normal. Only thing I did find is the inner tie rod boot has a small leak of what I'm assuming is power steering fluid but the leak isn't terrible because it's barely any and it's also not coming out of the boot. But everything else looked fine (steering wheel was off centered again when I was looking )VStar650CL wrote: ↑Sat Apr 23, 2022 7:05 pmAgreed. If it's anything in the tie-rods or the rack, turning it hard to the stops should get it to do something.
