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.

    Wobble in the steering wheel upon bumps. Information on this webpage was extremely helpful with diagnosing my problem. Will be seeking repair as soon as possible.
