    Got a problem with my steering wheel.. When I'm doing 50 60 the steering wheel is shaking very badly .. I thought I might need wheels re balancing but then when I pulled into the drive tonight there's a knocking sound from the passenger side ... Could this be track rod end maybe .. It's to late to look tonight gonna whip wheel off tomorrow and give track rod a shake

    leave the wheel on and get on your knees

    hold the ball joint on the end of the track rod and get the missus to shake the steering

    you should feel any knocking or movement

    you will be wasting your time with the wheel off and shaking it you need the weight behind it
