#2883 of 2936 Loose steering wheel of my 08 G35x!!! Urgent!!!
Nov 06, 2010 (5:08 pm)
I bought a 08 G35x this past August. My car slipped once and almost got hit on a highway about 2 weeks ago and had to steer hard to the left and right to keep the control.
After that it now feels like the steering wheel has been loosened. The little tightness you feel from driving an infiniti or BMW is no longer there in the steering. It felt as if somebody had loosened the steering wheel. It's really frustrating.
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what this could be or how it can be fixed. I took it to the dealer and they said everything felt fine (alignment, etc). There is no problem.
Any assistance you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

20 Gallons US is 16.65 gallons Imperial (or UK as it is sometimes indicated)
If the USA would use metric like the rest of the World, there wouldn't be this confusion!

Yes its fixed. It was the control rod bushing. After changing the struts and other suspension parts without any change to the rattle, my mechanic, using a pry bar, was able to get a lot of movement on the control rod at the bushing. We replaced it and solved the problem. Should work for you.

i think I'm having a similar issue, did it sound like a dull thumping noise, it occurs around 50 to 60 mph then goes away at higher speeds?
I took it to my mechanic over the weekend and he couldn't find any suspension/axle damage, though he was able to bring himself to change the rotors and brake pads.
