Hi Joel,Final report on the steering wheel oscillation and clicking from right front. As previously reported the clicking was resolved by replacing the right front wheel bearing. This was done under service warranty as that bearing had been replaced 2 years ago. For whatever reason it had excessive end play. The steering wheel oscillation was eliminated after the technician checked the run out of the right front rotor and hub. The front rotors were then turned using an on car lathe that can accommodate run out in both the rotor and hub. Everything is perfect now. I suppose that the bearing endplay and loose tie rods could have contributed to run out in the rotor and subsequent oscillation? Speculative but possible. I just saw your note regarding shock replacement and will take your advice and budget for that.Thank you for your commentary and recommendations, it is good to have second and fresh opinions. I was very pleased with the way my local dealer attacked the issue systematically, instead of just throwing parts at it. Best Regards,Ron Reece
