    when i first got my 99, it had a vibration in the steering wheel. Im not sure what got rid of it though bc i replaces the outer tie-rods, A arms, K member, steering shaft, C/C plates, coilovers and rack bushings all at the same time. I dont have a fromt sway bar, so didnt bother with endlinks.

    Rear control arms and as was said, check your steering shaft.

    Are they modified end links or just stock with new bushings? M/M recommends you get there modified links if your dropped low. My shimmy happens when the car weight get unloaded from weight bouncing when it dips on highway. Did you do your rack bushings yet?

    Rear arms are new, uppers are good, axle bushings are good. Will check the shaft though.

    They're shorter than stock, so modified yeah. Rack bushings are original

    Go polyurethane, there not hard to install since they are split in front and rear. The 20+ oem ones must have a ton of play.

    Shaft will give play in the wheel stationary, bushings will give play in the steering at higher speeds.
