Shaking steering wheel
Posted 12 November 2003 - 05:59 PM
Could this be attributed to a out of balance tire or should I have my front suspension and steering checked out?

how old and what kind of tires?
"throw us a bone!"

If that doesn't help, you'll have to dive into the suspension, my old car was pretty loose up front and some new tie rods (outer, then inner) helped out a lot..
I would think that your rotors would have to be really messed up to cause non-braking vibration... just a few thoughts.

The shaking didn't occur until about 3 months after I had that tire installed. The shaking started about a month ago, and as I said, it came and went. I also had my car inspected a couple of weeks ago, and it passed inspection fine, so they didn't bring up any issues.
I'll retighten the lug bolts and see if that helps. Also want to mention, while the steering wheel was shaking, I let go of the wheel to see if it would drift, but it didn't drift at all.

'MOST' (I know, but really usually is) of this type problem is bad tires. Sometimes even a 'bulge or bubble or tread sep.' that isn't obvious unless the tire is off the ground. Might be worth jacking the car up and spinning them. Plus, as has been mentioned, that wheel could have put undue stress on the tie rod ends and the rack.
I also think any brake issue is secondary - fix the tires/steering first.

100Nm on the lug nuts!

Another check for this, look at the brake pads. Is the inner or outer pad worn more than the other??
