My ford explorer developes a smooth yet tight vibration in the steering wheel between 50 and 60mph. It's a vibration almost like a wheel bearing but I have had both front wheel bearing replaced, transfer case replaced and drive shaft replaced. If you let go of the steering wheel and let the vehicle run a trure straigh line there is no vibration but as soon as you move the wheel even a 1/16 of a inch to the lef or right you feel the vibration. It does not matter how little you turn or how sharp you turn, you get he same tight vibration. It does this about 98% of the time. It is also worse when pulling hills in higher gears. It does not do it at slower speeds or on donwn hill grades. Is is deffinently on in the tires but more in the axel, hub or drive line. Can you help?
have the same problem?
