    Default Vibration through steering wheel?

    Since i put in my coilovers i have been getting a vibration through my steering wheel.


    vibration only occurs when wheels are slightly off centre (i.e not when i am going straight or in a sharp corner

    its like my wheels are offset and when i turn the tread on my tires is making a vibration...... but i am not getting any weird tire wear.

    any thoughts?

    Did you get a wheel alignment after installation of the coilovers?

    If not, get one.

    steering wheel vibrations are usually from out of balance rims. but yeah if your alignment is out could have the same effect.

    shot shocks (standard struts) usually cause vibrations to steerer, but since you have coilovers in i doubt it would be that

    +1 my car does it on high speeds over 100k's i was told to get wheels balanced i did wheel alignment myself with the old string around rear tyres trick and lines it up from there, but i will need a professional one when new wheels are on and balanced ofcourse, you should look into it,

    its not wheel allignment, as i had one done professinally.

    its not balance either, cause its only when the wheel is slightly off centre, i get nothing when i am driving in a straight line.

    ill check my tie rod ends, i think its cause when i turn it slightly turns one wheel more than another......
