This post saved me over $600 in repairs. I had my brother come over and move the steering wheel side to side on my 04 STX as I purred some oil on the knuckle "U" joints and puff, good as new. Prior to putting the oil on the knuckle joints it was near impossible to turn the steering wheel in either direction.
