Hi Pete, there are no noises at all.

Does the steering wheel shake side to side with this issue or is it just a vibration felt in the floor?

Hi Pete, I found an answer. It is called a JK wobble. I don't believe there is a fix yet. Thank you for your help.

You're welcome

The JK or death wobble is caused by loose or damaged steering components or suspension components.This is a tough wobble to pinpoint but usually if a dealer or reputable repair center puts it up on a lift they can check all steering components, axles and suspension components for play and wear and locate it.It tends to be one of these components that causes this fault needing replaced.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time, this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5-star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete
