Subaru Hi Speed Wheel Shimmy

Recommended Posts

We had a 2002 Subaru Outback today with a wheel shimmy at 55-60mph. The customer just had 4 new tires and a wheel alignment at another shop and the vibration was still there. We checked the balance, align and wheels...all ok. When we ran the car off the ground we found that the right side wheel wobbled as if the wheel was bent. We ran the car without the tire on the right side and could clearly see that the rotor wobbled badly.


We removed the rotor to check the hub, it was good. We installed a new rotor and the wobbled was gone.


If felt just like a tire balance problem.
