    Wheel Wobble

    Had the car lowered on Eibach 60/40 springs and since then I am getting wheel wobble and car shakes above 60mph that then gets progressively worse.

    Do you think they could have done something wrong in setting up the new springs, if so , what?
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    maybe one of the weights on the wheels came off when they were removed to do the springs

    mine started doing this a little while after having my tyres changed, had them re-balanced and they've been fine since

    Going down the road of getting the wheels re-balanced as this is the easiest bit to put right.

    Either that or they forgot to put one of the centre cap spacers back in after taking the wheels off.

    I had wheel wobble at about 60mph, had balancing done but it was still there.
    Turned out to be the wheel bearing, and it wasn't cheap!!!!!
    Just hope it's not that.

    Wheel bearing from Vauxhall = megabucks

    Wheel bearing from Autovaux = alot less,

    I cant see why lowering it has brought it to the fore - if it was the wheel bearing it would have been there before. we shall see.

    Thats what I thought, but the wheel bearings can just go over night.
    Mine made a droning noise when driving to, if you're car doesn't then it
    shouldn't be the bearing.
