I was just wondering if i should worry. I took it to my garage and had him check my tires and check all the fluids. He never said anything to me about the so called problem.

the only thing under the vehicle that has to do with the steering is the rack and pinion, the inner and outer tie rods, and thats it. i need to know what exactly you are talking about before i can tell you if its safe to drive or not.
