    Default Strange vibrations

    All of a sudden my siggy has started to vibrate at speed. It's strange as the vibration comes and goes. When i'm travelling in a straight line and i dont have vibration, it doesn't do it. When i am on a sweeping corner on the motorway the vibration will intensify before dying off. It's almost as if somewhere in the drivetrain there's some sort of mis alignment when the wheels turn at different speeds. The wheels have been balanced on the car and have been deemed to be running true. Any ideas?

    Check the driveshafts for play in the cv joints

    Cheers Mark. Is it just a case of getting under it and wobbling some bits around? As it happens i got an advisory about play in the steering rack. Maybe that's worth looking into also?

    I'd be inclined to start with the simple things, check the track rods and rod ends.

    Edit: Just noticed you had an advisory on the steering rack, fair chance thats not helping
