Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts

Ive had my LS400 for about 20 months but i havent noticed this before. Except for when the wheel is fully extended outwards and at its lowest lateratal possition, the wheel will rock up and down. It takes a bit of pushing and pulling with one hand at 12 oclock and the other 6 oclock but it rocks about 4 or 5 mm. It doent have any play side to side.

Is this amount of play normal. In which case it wont be an MOT failure. Or is it something that needs fixing.

I want to keep the car and convert it to LPG but i have to wiegh up weather or not it is cast effective. Mainly because it also needs a OSF ball joint and 3 new wheel bearings plus maybe a couple of bushes at the rear and replacement cats and mid exhaust section because teh flanges have gone..

Just checked mine and there is some up and down as well as a little side to side movement, although on both axis the movement is between the steering column and the dashboard rather than the actual steering shaft itself.
