I was reading my repair guide and it shows most 4x4 S10's have a steering
damper. Mine does not appear to have it. It says it is to keep the vehicle
from wondering. My S10 is doing that badly now.
I feel like I'm swerving all over the place. I have new tires and just
replaced a Idler arm that was causing it before. Seemed to go away but is
The truck sags in the back a lot more then it used to. Is there not enough
weight distributed toteh front causing this steering feeling? Do I need to
adjust the torsion bars to lower the front?
It's driving me nuts!
Sounds like the sag is causing the front end to float on ya. The only way
to correctly fix it is to replace the rear springs or have them re-arched.
All new front end components were installed and adjusted correctly I assume?
Had her in for an alignment lately?
Yes, all the front components are new. Front alignment done 6 months ago.
I put on two new rotors and pads last night. Put on new rear shocks. The
new shocks raised theback by 1/4 inch. Lowered the front with the torsion
bar by 1/2". Seems to be a lot better. Is it easier to have them rearched
or just get a "add a leaf" for it?
I also noticed the old pads were lose and sloppy in the caliper. The new
GOOD QUALITY ones I put on fit tight as hell. The right caliper sliders
where the bolts go through just fall out. Maybe that is the caliper that was
rattling like crazy and having the pads very lose. Put some good grease on
them and put it all back.
Truck looks fairly level now. Will drive it to work this morning and see how
