When braking, turning left or right, and even at a stand still you can feel a shimmy in the steering wheel.
Rack and pinion has been changed twice. Once by a mechanic that I am not happy with and once by me. He also replaced the tie rod ends, stabilizer bar link assembly, and sway kit. After he replaced all of the above, it still had the same problem. My wife took it back and he did a front end alignment. The problem was still there, when she returned he told her that those models do that.
It didn't do it for 9 years until just recently.
When I changed the rack and pinion I found that he didn't grease the tie rod ends or anything else. This and the statement about those models do that leaves me to seriously question his knowledge, abilities, and work ethic.
I would greatly appreciate any info that you could give to resolve the problem.
