'92 Eurovan, 5 sp., gas, 240K km
Replaced inner CV boot on driver's side and re-greased inner CV joint pass.
side - PO installed an aftermarket axle, grease was too thin and gasket on
CV joint was broken, so grease leaked out. Re-assembled the inner CV joint,
likely not as it was before, because it came apart, when trying to install
the axle due to limited space.

Issue is - when driving slowly, up to about 50 km/h, the steering wheel
"wanders" left-right, regularly, about 5-10 degrees each way. Also, pulling
to the right seems a bit too much, but inconsistent. Stops "wandering" at
higher speeds and no pulling either.

Another issue is, when under load, steep uphill, power surges - coming and
going. New TPS is installed, no change.

Thanks for any suggestions,
