random steering jerks while driving - car talk community

Random steering jerks while driving

2016-11-28It's a 2001 Lexus LX470 with 160 000 While driving I'm getting sporadic jerks in the steering Enough to pull the car to the driver's side slightly There are no noises associated so I'm guessing wheel bearing or serpentine belt are out I jacked up the wheel and checked for play and couldn't find any So I am not thinking it's a joint There is some slop in the CVs and/or front

My issue doesn't do that at all Steering isn't affected and there aren't any shakes going on It's just a few really quick jerks It's an automatic but it feels like it would on a manual transmission if you were to press and release the clutch in fast succession as you were accelerating (best I can describe it) only mine does that forward to back bucking/jerking while holding a constant
