Hello i have a problem with my outlander and i am starting to get mad because i do not know what it is?
At first i thought it was the ball bearings so i changed them all to new ones but the issue still remains.
Next i increased the tire pressure to 15 psi still no change and i am running out of ideas.

When i drive it somehow sway (oversteers) to the left and it is quite unpleasant when riding in high speeds.

I apologize for my bad English but i hope you understand my issue. :th_smiliepissed:

Put a straight edge on your rear tires and line it up and measure the difference between on the front tire. The rear is fixed obviously, but the front should be toed in about a 1/4" so the front of the tire should measure 1/4" inwards more than the rear of the tire. I just did moose upgraded tie rods and joints and it steered as you describe until i was able to adjust the toe.

CV joint is the joint on the end of the axle that drives the front wheels and rear wheels. There's a plunge joint on the inside near the differentials(just as it says, it moves in and out) and another joint on the outside edge that usually causes the problems with steering. Although it doesn't really sound like your problem.

Sounds like your power steering is fighting itself. If any steering component has ever been changed or an alignment was done, you have to go to the dealer to have them recenter the DPS (power steering).
