The front thrust rod bushingsalso referred to as tension strut bushingsare known to fail occasionally. The oil-filled rubber mounts weaken and crack over time, causing a mushy road feel and shuddering in the steering wheel when going over bumps.

    Same exact problem....shuttering in steering wheel. I have done the alinment thing and have been told it was the run flat tires causing it..... no way there is something wrong with the steering on this car!!!

    The car feels floaty and mushy when driving and the steering jerks sharply when driving over bumps. I've taken to the dealer nummerous times and was told I needed a wheel alignment, did it but continued to have the same problem; dealer said the rims were bent, replaced all four and still continue having the same problem. I've asked them have they checked the Front Thrust Rod Brushings and they say they have and found nothing wrong. There is something wrong with the streering on this car.
