Steering wheel wobble between 5-30 mph. and again at over 50mph
We did a frt brake job about 2 months ago. The car has been pulling to the right for quite some time now (acording to the owner). After a light inspection I was guessing the right wheel bearing. The right tire has since worn to the belts, and gone flat. Now with a new tire there is a pull asnd a wobble. Thanks!!!

Possibly bad brake hose or twisted/kinked causing pull. wobble may be bad/worn axle shaft on right side.some right axles are 2 or3 piece design.carrier support bolts maybe missing but more likely joint is worn. look for boots that have split or cracked&leaked grease.

I had that on my Acura. It was caused by warped brake rotors.
They may not have replaced the rotors on your brake job.
Brake rotors are usually warped by someone tightening the bolts too tight.Most cars require a torque setting of 80 to 120 ft lbs.
I've seen them torque the bolts to 300 ft lbs. So you have to watch anyone working on the wheels.
Hope this helps.
I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)
The problem in the acceleration might be the electronic governor and the clutch have to be replace.
ur nearest service center would check on it thoroughly, its a bit expensive and a experience Renault technician is needed!
The front wheel alignment should be checked again, as u said somebody have tinkered on ur steering!
Tell them to check the front wheel alignment(toe-in/toe-out) and the cambering. Ask them to show the result of computer wheel alignment. Wheel balancing is for the tyres only, not the steering!
Hope that Fixya up!
it could be the shocks but due to wheel wobble i would say its more to do with worn bushings on the suspension arms etc.... best way to check is to jack up each front corner of the car at a time and shake the wheel see if it has movement side to side or front to rear if so i would reccomend getting it looked at or replacing the bushings :) hoep this helps
Cgeck for play in the track bar , it goes from frame to front diff. Get a friend to move the steering wheel from left to right ( engine off ) about an 1/8 of a turn back and forth and watch for play in the steering and suspension parts. good luck.
if pulls right when braking,then l/h brake is faulty, the ajustments on the steering arms not even so steering bob/rack is self centering so r/h ajustment is too tinht,,wheels shaking=wheel bent,out of balance,bearings in hub worn so wheel wobbles
Sounds like a variation of what's known as "death wobble" You need to have everything in the front end checked over carefully for signs of wear. That includes shocks and steering damper (sideways shock on steering linkage) replacing damper will cover up the problem but usually will not cure it, so if you replace it be aware that the problem will usually be back in a week. Most times it is traced to a bad track bar end or mount that has elongated at the differential, or bad ball joints. However,If you have recently had the tires removed for any reason, I would loosen the lugs and re-tighten them in a star pattern, using a torque wrench. I'm pretty sure the setting is 70 lbs, but check that #. don't forget though...I said check everything (including mount for steering box.)
