I have a 94 merc cougar xr7 with an irratating steering issue. at 50 plus MPH it begins to have sloppy steering making it hard to drive the car. I checked for loose or broken steering parts and it appears to be nothing. But the strut rod bushings keep having to be replaced constantly .How can I fix this issue?


It could be alignment.

Are the struts themselves original?

Have you had anything checked at a chassis shop yet?


Check suspension parts


If this vehicle has a steering stabilizer (a horizontally mounted shock attached to the drag link) it could be the problem.


the strut bushings have been replaced like 3 times they keep deteriorating within a year even nylon ones .ive checked all the suspension parts and nothing but those seem to be damaged.
