  Steering Input Test  

To carry out this test, proceed as follows:

  • Drive at the speed where the concern occurs, while making sweeping turns in both directions.
  • If the concern goes away or gets worse, the wheel bearings, hubs, U-joints (contained in the axles of 4WD applications), and tire tread wear are all possible sources.
  • Proceed as necessary.
