Did any fault lights on the dash come on?

Ask Your Own Lexus Question

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
no
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
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 reply replied 11 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.
