I am hoping somebody can help me diagnose an issue with my 99 ES300, because I am stumped and can’t seem to find other posts with this issue. While I am driving, when I hit 25-45 MPH, the wheel suddenly rotates clockwise ~20 degrees while the path of the car stays pretty straight. There is some play at lower speeds too, but the the 25-45 MPH shift is the most dramatic. I have a video here where I am applying minimal grip to the wheel, so the rotations you see (especially ~9 seconds in) are not me. The sound is an item on my passenger seat, so that is unrelated.
I checked out the suspension and the front left control arm has some give at the bushing/joint, but that strikes me as a side issue. Everything else feels sturdy in the suspension. Has anybody else had experience with an issue like this? Anything else I can do to diagnose? I suspect this has something to do with the power steering which I have never dealt with before.
Thanks in advance!
