Play in the steering and wander is due to either worn steering rack, outer tie rods or the shaft coupler between the steering column and the rack and pinion. All need to be checked for excess play while on a lift.

My question was about the screaming noise at 55 mph and how to stop it on a 93 Saab 2003 convertible.
Auto Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 17 days ago

No, it wasnt. Here is verbatim what you posted

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No

I see nothing about a noise at 55mph. If you can point that out to me in your question, I will be happy to answer, otherwise you will need to open a new question about it as I answered what you actually asked about - a steering problem
