    Default Wheel wobble/vibration Please help.

    Hi, ive got a problem with wheel wobble/vibration. its been going on for a while and nobody can seem to find the cause. Ive had the following work done to the car.

    New track rod ends,
    new inner track rods.
    new drop links.
    checked for buckled wheel
    New tyres fitted to car around 2500miles ago. Was wobbling before new tyres.
    Just passed MOT

    I really need this sorted as its starting to **** me off now and everytime i want to go somewhere where i can put me foot down ive been using my dads merc, but prefere the comfort of me signum.

    Any help appreciated.

    Wheel wobble/vibration is normally due to the wheels need balancing. Does it wobble all the time or is it only at certain speeds? You have had just about everything else done, so hard to say without seing the car.

    If the wobble starts at low speed and just gets worse the faster you go it might be worth checking the driveshafts, i had a mk3 escort with a bent driveshaft years ago and it drove me nuts

    Had the suspension bushes checked mate all ok. Ive had the wheels balanced a few times at different places but still the wobble. It seems ok driving round the town, but once i go above say 50ish i start to get the wobble the faster i go the worse the wheel wobble. But sometimes its completely fine and no wobble then all a sudden it starts to do it again.

    Definately sounds like a balancing problem to me. Where abouts are you?

    Too far away from me. Have you recently hit any kerbs or large potholes?
