Default Vibration In Whole Vehicle

Hi everyone,
straight to the point....I get this vibration between 20-30mph and then 70-80mph. my steering wheel is solid rock and it does not vibrate but the whole front end have slight vibration.....depending on the tarmac condition the intensity changes. I need to mention that I have 20inches rims on my car and I'm lowered on eibachs. my tires size are 225/35r 20. Does anyone else have this problem?

Default re: Vibration In Whole Vehicle

My wife gets a low-speed vibration in her 07 Altima...it's a side-to-side movement through the vehicle. I get a road force balance and it goes away for a year or so and then comes back. Every time I've gotten a road force balance, it has gone away. She needs another one now because the wobble is back...

Default Re: Vibration In Whole Vehicle

First thing I would do would be to find a dealership with a Hunter Road-Force balancing machine. Then I would have them do a road-force balance on all 4 wheels...this cost $39.95 at my dealership...it costs $119 at the Infiniti dealership.

Next I would check for bad tie-rods (probably not), then I would check the front wheel bearings, and then I would check the CV axles/joints...then let us know what you find.

I agree with Don. Sounds like a balancing issue, especially that it shows itself at two different speeds; sounds like resonance. I'd go with the re-balancing as well, UNLESS you're hearing or feeling some grinding, rubbing, etc.

Good luck dude.

my tires are the crappy nankang ns-IIs...thank you guys for the advice.. for next 5 weeks I will not be able to attend to this problem, super busy with school. As I remember I didn't get the vibration with my stock rims and tires. I agree with you chamax...it's a resonance issue....at 65mph there is no vibration over the 80mph....It's a subtle vibration but I will look into it when I can and let you know.

I purchased some cheap tires once, Fullway 245/30/22, ROARED something awfull sold the rims and tires , after that, loud tires scratched rims. Sold for 700 wasnt too bad i suppose. I knew i wasnt putting them back on anyways. The best cheap tire for the money is Nexxen and they are not really cheap anymore 300 a tire.

I have personal experience on lowered cars that when the car is lowered enough so that the CV rod angles are negative to what they were before (from I/--\I to I\--/I) it will cause the vibration.....as of mine I think they are still on the parallel side but gotta check them out. There are so many probabilities and all I hope is that it wouldn't be a bent rim or the CV, cause they're a PITA to fix.

I saw some strut mounts that seemed to let you adjust the camber on ebay i think. This theory seems to be correct as i have a bad drivers strut mount, and the tire no longer sits at the same angle.
