Hummer H2 For those who like a little more gleam to their Hummer, the H2 offers a similar rugged look as the H1, but as a lower cost, and with more added features, making it almost a massive luxury SUV.

Honestly not sure myself. Maybe the steering stabilizer is binding up in some way?

Ive been battleing the same thing for a while now. I thought my mechanic had tightened up the adjustment on the steering box. This was after i had him do the pitman and idler arm and complained about the way it was handling after. This weekend it was really acting weird with some steering wheel shake. When i got home my front right wheel was smoking as the caliper was seized. I swapped it out with a new one and low and behold my steering feels way lighter. I was ready to teplace every component in my front steering and suspension. Probably not your issue. But worth looking into.

Put it up on jack stands and cycle it side to side and see what it’s doing. You get underneath and have someone turn the whee, l you can probably do it by grabbing the tire and turn it back and forth.I had my gearbox rebuilt ( because I didn’t want a different box) I was able to turn my wheels from the tire really easily. I think you will get a better understanding of what is going on with it.

i remember reading that bilstein steering dampers also have that effect i think rancho as well because they work more like shocks then the OEM one that just dampens
