Mk 2 Jetta front end

Postby Loaf on Jun Tue 22, 2010 9:49 am

My Mk2 Jetta has a slight but noticable steering wheel shake at 55-65 mph. I had the tires rebalanced- no luck. I have very little experience w/front end issues. Where do I go from here? If I can't figure this out, which shop do you reccomend in the Bozeman area?

Have you tried switching your front wheels to the back? Maybe take a look at your axles too.
It's not how fast you go. It's how well you go fast.
