    jerk to the right??

    Hey guys, I have a problem w/ my 2005 STI:

    It will jerk to the right while driving. The steering pump has been loosing fluid, and leaking onto the engine causing it to smoke. when i get past 60mph, it sounds like rumbling. The main problem is the jerking to the right. I checked, but saw no broken tie rods or cv joints, and no tears to the boots and nothing was loose. It is possible that there are two problems though. The struts are notoriously bad in the sti. i may have to take it in if we can't figure it out.

    Anyone know what could be causing this?
    thanks for your help.

    Nothing may be broken, but have you checked for bent suspension components?

    I still say replace the PS Pump first....I wouldnt even dig into another problem until a known faulty part that could potentially have the chance to be causing it is replaced...
