My car wonders in the road. When I am going strait down the road it wants to weave off to one side then the other. It seems to be stable in the curves but not when it's strait. I have replaced idler arm and center section with the moog replacement enhanced parts. I have tightened and inspeced every thing I can get a socket on. What do I do now? I am thinking about taking it to a front end man and let him look to see what he thinks on monday or tuesday but in the mean time I will try what ever you guys sugest.

I had exactly the same problem! Replaced the idler arm first and didnt help. Broke down and bought the buick center link and tie rods. Put them on last thursday, got an alignment and it drives great! No wandering at all. Dont know if it was the center link or the tie rods that was bad. Could be your tie rods are shot.

I had a worn steering box on a vehicle that did what you say yours is doing. A very good front end man adjusted the preload on my worn box and it was better than new.
