    Sounds like the same issue on the 98. The steering will be tight then loose. The pitman/idler and outter tie rods are 6 months old.

    Some instances the driver can be making a turn and in the middle of the turn the steering wheel will feel like it broke loose for a split secind then catch itself. Does yours do this also?

    Yep does that exact thing all the time. I'm gonna order this Friday. Can you pm me a cost with shipping Mark? Zip: 76040

    Pretty odd this will be the second one of these sensors to go bad in 4 years.

    Check the loose nut behind the wheel.
