Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Jack it up at each wheel, spin the wheel, watch it to see if it is out of round, if there might be a bubble in the tire anywhere, (cords break inside the tire), or if the rim is bent. Use chalk as it spins to locate slight flaws. Compare wheel to tire while spinning. Check to see if the wheel is loose either at the hub, axle or lug nuts. Make sure your A frame or tie rods are not coming loose. Use pry bars to see if everything is tight. If your wobble is only when braking it is probably a un-evenly worn brake rotor. Always chock (block) your wheels and apply emergency brake while jacking up a car. Take your time and be safe. Do not get distracted if you are running a jacked up car. Apply brake before moving shifter back to park to stop spinning wheel.

SOURCE: Steering Wheel Wobble
Have you tried cross checking with another wheel alignment specialist? To me it seems to be coming from the tyres or a dented rim. You could ask them if they do dynamic wheel balancing on the car itself. This will take in consideration the out of round of the hub as well.
Let us know if there is any change.

its most likely the tires out of balance. With car problems its always best to try the most common and cheapest solutions first and that would be having it rebalanced.

I had the same problem on my 04 tj, if you have a lift or larger tires it happens frequently, they call it the "death wobble" buy steering stabilizers, there's one that replaces the factory one and there's another one that is supplemental and it goes a little bit below the stock one..... i got mine on quadratec.com for like $60 and i dont get any wobble anymore
