    Default Wheele wobble/vibration + tracking

    Been having some wheel wobble around 70mph for the last couple of months which has been progressively getting worse, to the point last week when even at low speeds, the wheels was wobbling. Had some new tyres fitted, but the guy at the tyre place said he couldn't track the car properly and that there was play in the steering rack

    Car's been in the garage today and £110 later, I have new tracking arms - steering is great, no wobble even at 70 (+ a bit more) mph.

    Just thought I'd post in case anyone was having problems or looking at £500+ for a new steering rack etc..
