Default steering help

Hi all,

So recently i noticed when i press on the brakes and turn the steering wheel when i"m at stopped the wheel shakes when i turn the tires back and forth,
I can kinda notice when i"m driving and i press on the brakes and turn it does it to.

The wheel does not shake when i"m going straight.
Nor does it shake if i turn without the brakes.

I'm not sure f this is something in the brakes or if its balljoints/tie rod ends....

Thanks
John

The wheel shakes when you're stopped?

Does the wheel shake when you're going straight and applying the brakes?

Holy hell! I just realized you spelled brakes correctly throughout your entire post!

Sounds like you may have a warped brake rotor or rotors.

Yes it shakes when i'm sitting and i turn back and forth while holding the brake pedal, and a little when driving turning and braking at the same time

Zero vibes while driving and braking

Now I'm even more confused.

It doesn't happen while you're driving and braking.

It does happen while you're driving, braking and turning.

It does happen while you're sitting still and turning the wheel back and forth.

I'd say you got a case of the Gremlins!

Seriously, that sounds like a combination of a brake rotor and steeing rack issue.

When you're sitting still, does the wheel feel like it's catching at certain points as you turn it, or is it actually shaking/vibrating in your hands?

Is your car lowered at all?

Common factor seems to be steering related, but only more pronounced when braking. How is your power steering fluid level? Your power steering pump could be on its way.

Either you have a power steering pump thats getting ready to go out on you as Subarus are notorious for that, you have aleak either in the pump or in a lines somewhere, or you rack seals are getting ready to go and your gonna need a new rack very soon.

Power steering pump. Have a friend be you. Step on the brakes and start turning the wheel.

You look at the PS Pump and see if it starts shaking like a bastard.
