Loud road noise from front end at 65+...rack and pinion??
I drove to Salem, MA today and noticed a little bit too much road noise from the front end. I stopped at a rest stop and jacked each front wheel up and the same is for both. When a nudge the wheel up and down, nothing, but when i move it left to right the steering wheel moves slightly and i can hear and feel the play. I think its my rack and pinion but im no mechanic, and i need it for work everyday, so can anyone help me figure this out?
Strange that it only does it at 65+, I would say you have a worn joint, but which one is hard to say without getting the car up in the air, what I would do is go to a tyre place and get them to have a look.
