    I have a judder through the steering wheel that seems to get worse the faster you go and seems to get better and worse at times.its not shacking the wheel violently but there is an issue somewhere that needs sorting.it can also be felt through the throttle peddle.Anyone have any idea's?

    And its definitely not a balancing issue.

    Tyres pressures, wheel alignment, buckled wheel?

    If your getting shaking under braking its most likely a warped disc

    Sturs, have you tried jacking up each side and looking for excess play in the wheel bearings, steering ball-joints, or even in the steering
    box attachments, or actually in the steering box itself? Could also be suspension joint(s)/bushes etc. Give the wheel a damn good shake both horizontally and then vertically, and see what happens. If you can find any play, then get someone to look underneath while you are shaking the system to try to determine which component is moving. Good luck.
