Well, I jacked up the Sube today and tried to look under it, though I had no idea what to look for, haha...
regarding what I think is the tie rod, it looks one of the joints (i think?) that connect to each wheel was messed up. One side looked normal - dry, moved but not too easily, just normally. The other side, though, was covered in a thick grease/grime, and seemed too loose, as though it was moving on that joint too easily. Mean anything? Ball joints themselves seemed okay, I remember what a bad ball joint felt like on my Jeep, haha..
Also, update on all the other problems: In three weeks, my mechanic is going to replace the head gaskets, water pump, timing belt, clutch, and try to fix this problem with the shaking wheel.
