noticed this while overtaking 2 B doubles and a vw camper at 120+kph, had a look under the rear 2 days ago and noticed some freeplay in the axles, can anyone help me understand the problem and how to fix it? my old 1997 vt s never vibrated in the rear

Welcome to Whirlpool.

First place to start is always wheel balance. When you say freeplay in the axles what do you mean?

The axles that come from the diff, they move up n down, back n forth and side to side, about 3mm freeplay each way

Dont tell me not to speed because everyone has done it atleast once whether knowing they did or not knowing.

next time just lie, whether it happens at 110 or 120 it won`t matter when it comes to diagnosis;)

Have 17's with 235/45 with bad camber wear, could that be it? My old s pac had the s pac rims and no vibration at 210kph, could be the tires?
