Most steering problems an be attributed to worn parts such as tie rod ends ball joints and power steering pumps.

They do not have to leak to be worn out. Think about all the roads you travel on, even if they are smooth, shocks and struts actuate millions of times in their effective life span. Coil springs are often overlooked as well. They help maintain ride height and stability and can effect steering. There are also several other parts, such as control arm bushings, that can have a big impact on steering, suspension components and tires.
