The Dreaded Wheel Wobble! Solution - For Me Anyway!


Recommended Posts

I had new discs fitted today to my MK2 GS300 (bought from Big Den - cheers Den :) )

Why did I have these fitted?

Symptoms

- Wheel wobble during braking - sporadic, not always present - strange but true!

- Occasional clonking noise from near-side caliper under braking

- Wheel wobble at speed 60 - 70 mph it became very noticeable, but always there slightly

- Sometimes thought that the wheels needed balancing - bumpy and wobbly at speed

- Feedback through steering wheel rather annoying

Cure

- New discs and pads put on

- Calipers cleaned & greased

- Wheel nuts tightened to 103 Nm

Now there is zero wobble when braking, zero wobble or bumpiness at speed and all is cool :) Driving home was mixture of slow 10-20 mph & 70-80 mph, lots of braking. Nothing so far. Let's see how long this lasts (fingers crossed)

Unfortunately, I do not have any answers for you! :-(

All that's left I suppose is to

(a ) Check the torque on the wheel nuts?

(b ) Check upper wishbones / lower ball joints

(c ) Check wheel balances

(d ) Check tyre pressures

(e ) Have the new discs checked for buckles

(f ) Check the pistons on the calipers

Have you tried jacking the car and spinning the wheels - listening for contact/rubbing?

Sorry mate
