    Got same thing here mate and had it for 3 years since i got ran into, ive literally replaced every suspension part from bush to coilovers, only thig i havent done is had the alignment redone as its out and i dont think the wheel sits right on thw floor and thats why its hops due to the contact.

    I had something similar when my tyres were worn right low - down to the legal limit.

    When turning right out of my drive (on full lock) in the mornings over the block paving it would cause the tyre to judder. Now I have new tyres it's fine.

    Anyhow it's an option ...

    I have the same when on full lock at slow speed, but only if the road surface is slippery (damp, frosty etc). Always check alignment on the car at every service, so I 've just come to accept it.
