Ah, it's so depressing.... constant, nonstop problems not sure why :tdown:. Anyways... I've been getting a lot of bump steering on the right side. If I hit a bump on the right tire the steering wheel jerks to a random position almost causing me to either drive into a guard rail, or onto oncoming traffic. I've recently changed the left tie rod, and a rear transmission/motor mount. Another thing my steering wheel doesn't straighten out when I take a turn like it's supposed to. Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated..... I'm about to give up on cars they just always have problems for me.

you need to look at the suspension connections on that side, arm bushes, drop link, tie rod etc. Get it in the air and have a good look and inspection.

Once you have caught up with the work neglected by the previous owner, you will be ok. its always the way bud.

Alright... thanks. Could it be because I only changed the left tie rod? After I changed that I started to get the bump steer and torque steer. The torque steer went away after I fixed the motor mount either way tomorrow I'll check it out and hopefully I can find the problem.

Did you get the steering re-aligned after doing it ? might be worth getting a garage to have a look at the alignment etc.

Nope not yet, I was going to wait until I did the other tie rod but maybe I should just get it done. Haha and my rear view mirror just fell off. GREAT
