CAR STEERING TENDS TO WOBBLE WHEN NEGOTIA

1996 Honda Accord

Shakes or Wobbles problem
1996 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 300000 miles

especially when speed is slow below 100 km per hour on freeway travel the steering have a feel of not steady or smooth with normal new car. In particular on rough road during cornering below 80 km per hour or less the car is not steady and feels like shifting away. Could this be the steering rod or tie rod end n head, upper arm, lower arm, ball joint etc. I have no answer from the local mechanic but to change all the above parts. Even suspension. Would appreciate your expert answer earliest possible. Thank you

HI there,

This could be a steering or suspension problem, check that there is no oil leaking from the struts and when you bounce the front of the car it is not over soft or re bounds more than 1 1/2 times, this is just a rule of thumb check, poor tyres and uneven tyre pressures can cause this and check tie rod ends and rack mounts as well, start here.
