hey guys,

i got a front end problem on my vr, when ever i apply the brakes the front end shudders. mostly it feels like it comes from the passenger side. also the wobble doesnt go away after a sharp turn it just gets a little worse even when just driving straight without any brakes. other times its fine just a wobble with the brakes its just the fact it makes the steering wheel shake pretty bad sometimes.

it has new tyres on the front and a new passenger side rack end.

any help would be greatly appreciated

cheers

yes probably a rotor or pad problem.
possibbly worn bushes or something but fix the brakes first.

Are the tyres wider than normal 15's 205/65r15. For example when I brought my Vr it had 235/55s I think, on it and they made to brakes wobble really bad due to when the front end had load in braking they would rub on the bottom of the strut towers. Get brake rotor check done and tyre balance checked too, as sometimes the weights on the tyres can come off if you hit a curb etc.
