hey ive got a vx calais and im getting a slight intermitant vibration through the steering wheel and the seat at around 100 - 110. how tight should the rubber be around the 2 piece tailshaft bearing be as i can shake it quite easily with my hand, everything else looks fine so that my only idea. its not balance related or anything tried balancing them and even tried 3 different sets of wheels any1 got any ideas what it could be cars only done 50 000 kms.
Thanks Brad

Sounds like it could be the centre bearing as they lossin up preety easy if u drop a few skids here n there....

Could also be ur wheel align, are ur tyre wearin evenly??

But im goin with center bearing as it only come thru wen ova 100 so thats where the prob will most likely b

Where bout on the coast are ya??
