    slight vehicle shake/steering wheel between speeds of 20-30mph under load

    hi guys just joined this forum to see if i can find out what maybe the cause and fix to a ever so slight vehicle shake through the steering wheel and also feels like its going through the vehicle as you can feel it on the passenger side. under acceleration does get worse but after 40 mph it stops ???? have new tyres all round and balanced. can anybody advise...

    Do you have cheap spacers on? Does it wobble under braking?

    If you jack up a wheel, can you shake it by hand?

    So something loose... could be bushes, could be more serious. I'd get someone with a ramp to have a look at it.

    What gear are you in as this might be relevant if it's a particular speed you notice it.

    ormally dodgy spacers or wheel balance will be felt around 60-75mph.

    the wobble i feel through the car and the steering wheel is there between 30-40mph so what ever gear im in at the time i reach 30-40 mph and i noticed today if i just keep it under 40 and quickly press accelerator i can feel the wobble more then what i would driving normally
