Odd Sliding In My 1996 Ford Ranger
When I turn right, not an actual turn, but more like a curve in the road or a lane change, it feels like the rear end of truck is sliding out or not wanting to turn right, but it only does it sometimes and it seems like I'm the only one who notices it. When other people drive it they don't notice this, but I had the same problem last year and they tightened something, I think it was some bar on my transmission or on the bottom of it, I don't remember, and I never had the sliding problem again. It seems like the sliding only happened last time when I turned left, but now it's when I turn right. The steering wheel feels like it wants to turn right a lot more than left, but when I make left turns now it feels totally fine. I took it to Les Schwab and they replaced my front bushings but still no difference, and they said that I needed new tie rods in the front and that the sway bar needed to be replaced. I took it then to Big O Tires who I had tighten whatever it was last year and they told me that I only needed the bushings, which is why I only got those. I'm really confused about all of this though and I just want my truck to stop feeling like it's sliding. Any ideas on this anyone?
