Question about Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 71 Superbeetle that has a bad shake in the front end
To my knowledge, the car has not been wrecked to the point that the "frame" would have been bent enough to cause this problem.
Have you rotated the tyres?have the shock aborbers been checked.Warped drums would show up in the wear pattern left inside the drum and on the shoes.You could take a wheel off spin the brake drum and with a felt pen slowly let the pens tip touch the edge of brake drum.hold pen in the same place without moving it and it will show up high and low sections if any.Are all the bushes(suspension in a servicable condition?Sounds like anti sway or stabiliser bushes may need looking at as your problem is when you accelerate,not so much pressure on the bushes,sometimes vibates and more vibration when you brake when its under a higher amount of stress.Could be a bent rim Could be need wheels balanced.Have you correctly adjusted your brake shoes?Therse a slot in the back of the wheel hub assembly
