Re: 1999 Toyota Avalon V6 For some time now I have been feeling vibration in the steering wheel when stopped in gear but not in P or N. I replaced my rear motor mount and dogbone with OEM a few years ago so I am pretty sure they are ok but maybe front mount is bad. Tranny mount checks out fine. More recently I notice that when I hit a bump, I feel the shock in the steering wheel as if it has not been absorbed. What can be causing this? The steering rack is only connected through the tie rod ends, right? Do you think these two (vibration when stopped in gear and shock when I hit a bump) issues are related? Thanks.
