Hi guys, I have an '05 Magnum sxt 3.5 and have had it since last November. I did buy it used. Anyway, the question I have is ... Has anyone had any issues with a slight vibrating in the sterring wheel when turning? I get a vibrating in the wheel usually when I get in and go and make my first turn or two. It doesn't do it every time I make a turn but does do it everytime I back up. (I describe it as "dry steering" and has a slight noise to it as well). I have taken it to the dealer and they say nothing is wrong ... but yet it continues. Any comments or suggestions or ???

Welcome aboard Shane!! Was nice to chat with you yesterday at THD and at the Show.

I'm sure someone here 'might' be able to address your query .... lets see if the Mighty Chicken pops in to answer this one... though this might have been better place in the General LX section.. but hey ;)

from online database:

Vehicle Issue: Shudder in the power steering system.

Model: LX - 300 , LX - Magnum
Symptom: Shimmy / Shake , Shudder , Vibration
Driver Input / Vehicle Operation: Parking Lot Maneuvers , Turn / Turning
Case Verification: This is mostly noted during parking lot maneuvers. The vibration can be felt in the power steering hoses.In some instances the pump, hoses and / or steering rack have already been replaced.
