the steering is so loose that it is dangerous to drive. The left front wheel bearing siezed up and had to be taken off from the knuckle and replaced. Steering was loose before but nothing like it is now. Right wheel bearing, shocks and struts on both sides also replaced along with front brakes and rotors. Any idea what may have caused this sudden problem?
I would say 2 possibilities. One, you have a bad tie rod inner or outer that needs replaced. Otherwise, you may just need a front alignment really bad after all these repairs. Don't know if you have had an alignment or not.
