Everything else is exactly as one would expect
From the sounds of things, what couldn't be fully checked is really what needs to be checked.

I agree with Billr that the tilting is likely caused by stut, sway bar, or knuckle problems. Check closely for a broken strut sping as well as the mounts while you're in there.

If that seems to check out, remove the tie rod ends from the knuckle and then check function of both the column and rack assembly when not attached to the hub/knuckle of the wheel. The same process frees up the wheel side to check for binding or problems in that area.


This video will show what to do so the checks can be made. Just don't disconnect the rack unless it's proven to be the problem.

Another great Richpin video
