Ok, I looked around and can't find any information on this. My steering wheel moves up and down (not side to side) about 1/16" (give or take a few). It just started doing this about 2 months ago. It is a 2003 V6 with 50K. My steering is tight, the car doesn't vibrate and none of the other signs that the TRE ends are going. I am not sure if the previous owner used his steering wheel to get in and out of the car and maybe has worked itself loose? Any thoughts or ideas.
