    I bought this 2007 columbia, i did this before installing new steers. Well sometimes i would get a wobble on the steering wheel after hitting a bump on the road. Got new steer, new drag link and new alignment, guy said tie rods where good. Now it still does it, what can it be?

    left to right or up and down..
    Just cause its aligned doesnt mean they did it right....
    Are the tires mounted on a clean rim?
    Rim bent?.
    What ki da shape are the shocks in..

    I have the same problem,visually checked everything all looks good,i just found out that the bolt holding the pitman arm to the grooved steering box shaft is loose allowing the drag link to move back and forth,will stop soon and tighten it and will update.

    Keep an eye on that daily and if it works its self loose again order a new pitman arm.
