no

It passed NYS inspection they said I could still drive it.

The symptom you are experiencing sound more like a brake rotor, wheel bearing or a worn tie rod than a faulty steering column.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
That's what I think.

If you are not checking/fixing it yourself, I will recommend taking it in for a second opinion to a different shop. I have never seen a steering column give the symptoms you are experiencing.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
thanks I will
