Steering Wheel Shake

(1/2) > >>

InkedKnuckles:
 :jw I have a quick question as i think I know the answer but wanted to see your opinions. I have a 2015 jku sport. Just installed a metal cloak 2.5 lift with front track bar, new brakes, gears, wheels and tires. I noticed at around 45MPH the steering wheel seemed to shake or wiggle back and forth. Not violently or abruptly, just a quick shake left and right. After about 50 it goes away, seems to only really happen at that one speed. Do my tires need to be re-balanced?

Gr8Dain:
Did you get an alignment after installing the lift?

InkedKnuckles:
Yes

Runner:
If you have a shimmy at the same speed every time, first thing to check is tire balance.

dave2002ti:
Tire balance issues usually occur at 30 or 60mph.  Also at 90mph. When they occur at 120mph its not a lot fun.

Double check and make sure everything is torqued to spec.   Especially the wheels.
