The idler arm of your Oldsmobile partners with the pitman arm for linking the steering box to the steering links, ensuring that the wheels will instantly turn once you direct the ride. If you go through delayed steering response and lack of control over your ride, you will have to replace the Oldsmobile idler arm. Check the steering linkage of your vehicle and confirm if the bearings are broken or if the arm needs to be lubed up.
The idler arm of your Oldsmobile is more likely to wear out compared to the pitman arm and many other steering connections, considering the the rotation from its rod.

A damaged idler arm can lead to front-end wobbles and hard steering. For good measure, you'd better change this steering part of your Oldsmobile when fixing a damaged pitman arm for excellent vehicle performance.
