Hey guys i recently had my car lowered on king springs. Iv had a wheel allignment done since having it lowered also. I had the back done by pros but the front done by a mate who seemed to no what he was doin it all went together fairly smoothly. Only thing is I now have vibrations in the steering wheel at around 85ks and onwards. Any ideas as to what may be the problem?

Cheers for any info

Get it sorted by a pro mate, wheel alignment's are a more exact science than some would think.

You may have also thrown a wheel weight.

Cheers.

Yeah had the wheel allignment done by pros. It does feel like it maybe needs a wheel balance. I didnt realise the weights could come off so it could be that. Cheers guys. Il let you no if its the weights hope so easy fix then.

Thought it may of been adding to the problem not the main part of the problem.

This is true.

With regards to wheel alignments, ask the place if they compensate for lateral run out before doing the alignment. If they look at you stupid, or say no, go elsewhere...
