Monte Carlo

  • Automatic transmission

The tie rods wore out prematurely, causing the front end to shimmy. Steering shaft connected to the steering rack and pinion had a lot of play. This problem happened when driving at various speeds. It caused the vehicle to be uncontrollable, and wore out the tires.
