1993 Ford Tempo 2.3 engine 78,000 miles. I just had the rack and pinion replaced, new tires put on the car, and the entire front end rebuilt (except for my ti rods that the mechanic said was okay, but ball joints, control arms, bushings, etc) and an alignment and the car is light years better then it was before the work was done. However, when I approach high speeds (55+MPH) I still get a bad vibration in the front seat and steering wheel and I don't know what the problem is since the front end is tight now. It also seems like im losing a little bit of traction on the highway, like the car shakes a little bit. At sub 55MPH speeds none of this occurs however. Should I check the rear end or could it be something related to the rack and pinion steering unit (That was done by my dad on his own, not at a shop like the front end parts.) I am guessing its in the rear end but I'm not quite sure.
