89' Sable. Bought it for $350 with a engine light that would come on
when warm and idling neutral (but that's not the problem).
* I could always sense a slight "rubbing" (I guess you would call it)
when turning the wheel to the right. At first I thought it was just
uneven tread on my left-front tire.
* Last week, I have to yank the wheel hard-right to avoid an accident. I
heard a kind of "pop" or "clunk" when I did that (not very loud).
Afterward, I noticed the streering wheel stays at about a 30-degree (to
the right) angle when the car is going straight. The car doesn't "pull".
* Since that, the "rubbing" is louder, and I'm convinced it's not uneven
What's wrong here, and what are the cheapest means of fixing it?
(Remember, this is cheapo car. I don't care if the steering wheel isn't
straight, but the other thing worries me.)
