    Does it wobble over 60 but then stops over 70 for example?

    Have you changed the lower arm ball joints as this happend on my mates, no movement when jacked up due to the angle but only a very tiny amount of movement when down ment it felt like it was all over the place.

    Im having this issue to. Had wheels balanced 4 seperate places. New cv joints etc. Very annoying. Will check those joints though.

    Have you changed the track rods or just the ends? Mine we're fubar'd after only 64k miles! This pic below is the part that screws onto the steering rack, it was floppy!
