Steering wheel shaking.

8 posts in this topic

hi

 

New to this blog, wonder if any kind soul can advise as I just bought a 2nd hand

clc 180 and after replacing 4 x new Michelin PS 2 (MO), computer alignment twice,

auto balance thrice and numerous rims and tyres swop still steering wheel shaking.

Basically slight shaking when moving off and become more noticeable when at high

speed. in fact just tighten all undercarriage screws and nuts still the same. Please assist.

THANKS.

Looks like you have already done all the right checks but still having persisting problem. Have you tried other workshop for wheel alignment check? Maybe a reputable ones like Kenny.

Most likely is due to wheel alignment or balancing issue based on own experience.

Before rims change does it vibrates? Before Rim size specs is? After tyres size and rims offset specs? Is wheel balancing ok? Have u consult Far East at kaki bukit? Who is the tyres shop that you purchase from? Accident free?

Last resort is to go back to cnc as their alignmemt software is most accurate, most outside work alignment software is likely back dated.

many thanks for the advise

- computer ailignment done 2 time by different workshop

- wheel balancing done 3 time by different workshop

- had replaced the rim and tyre with another different set still the same

- 2 x engine mounting and 1 x gearbox mounting already replaced

- 4 x staggered 18 inch rims are original

 

someone told me that it is likely due to camber and toe alignment issue, question is where can i

have this done besides C&C which is costly and also early appointment is 3 weeks later

at Pandan cost between S$150-200/- for checking with their set of wheel and rim.

 

Later symptom is that the steering wheel shaking is consistent regardless of speed.
