Well hello everyone, I've been around here on an other username awhile back, figured I'd come visit and request some input (on an extremely frustrating
type of issue)
Long story short, went to an open track day a few months back, over-compensated into a turn at around 40MPH, and ended up backwards, at an embarassing, slanted angle cars aren't supposed to ever be "parked" at. All seem fined for a short time. Until..
I developed the woefully illusive vibration!!! Which I will try to describe as detailed as possible, so you may provide an opinion on what it may be:
1. Vibration occurs @ exactly
64 mph. subsides even .5 mph above or below, then worsens above 72mph +, to where anyone as a passenger would realize it's not normal.
2. Vibration also occurs @ exactly 1900 rpm, in any gear, although not so noticeable to anyone but me.
3. Steering wheel shake
@ around 65mph + - 3mph, not as specific as the general vibration @ 64mph.
4. If braking hard into a corner, even at extremely low speed (< 10mph) , definite roughness is felt, not the typical ABS feeling.
5. If below 'highway' speed (60+) nothing is felt. It drives just fine, minus minor "looseness" over bumps and potholes, which could also be a symptom.
Ive had the tires balanced, going to get an alignment, although I fear the problem may be something else worse. What is strange is that it did not occur immediately after my mishap. It began a short time after.
Ive come up with a whole range of possibilities: CV joints, U-joint, bent driveshaft, broken strut, warped rotors, bad motor/tranny mounts, bearings.. this all adds up!!$$$$ I'm beating my head over and over!!
Any input is greatly appreciated! Please and thank you.
