transmission shifter and steering wheel vibrates....
It has always done this but i replaced both sides of the cars tie rod ends and replaced rotors and brake pads but the transmission shift knob will shake bad and the steering will just a little. O yeah also replaced the shocks. I was thinking the lower control arms becuase when i had it pulled apart I could see shiny ball part of the bushing, dont know if that is suppose to be like that or if all you should see is bushing but the reason i ask is becuase if its something else and i end up replacing the lower control arms then im going to be

Re: transmission shifter and steering wheel vibrates....
Read my suspension thread and learn more.
Might as well read the other stuff regarding the Catera like the timing belt & tensioner, oil cooler, heater bypass valve, GTO brakes, etc.
The shifter shaking might be related to the bushings but maybe not. I'd guess broken motor or transmission mounts but since the shifter isn't connected directly to the tranny (except by its linkage) I kind of doubt it could be them but I've been wrong before. I had the transmission replaced and a couple of linkage bolts loosened which caused a lot of play/slop at the shifter making it hard to put it into PARK. Is that a problem you've noticed?
