hi guys, im chasing a vibration\shudder i have in my vr v6. It occurs at 60k's and gradually gets worse with higer road speed. Feels like its front end related. So far i have replaced rear shocks, drive shaft & centre bearing, trans mount, srut mounts and bearings, new wheels and tyres and f\end alignment, dotors and pads. It feels like a very bad wheel imbalance\buckled rim, but the wheels and tyres are a1 and tried on another vehicle and felt fine. Eng mounts are 6months old. Rack ends are fine as are all bushes and tie rod ends. Im running out of things it could be, so can anyone maybe shed some light on what it may be. Cheers ash

Front end vibrations will be felt through the steering wheel.

Are the vibes and shudder quite prominent through the steering wheel or is it more a body shudder?

If it's live axle could be your upper trailing arms, the ones that go from the top of the diff onto the body.

about $100 for a set of new ones off ebay, install yourself in 5 minutes.
