Vibration on Cirrus...

Recommended Posts

The vibration does not seem to be speed sensitive, no resonance. Doesn't seem to link to engine speed. Vibrates steering wheel, GPS. It's been going on for some time. Persistant... all the time. This has been making me crazy. Seemed like it ought to be simple enough... I've been working on this on & off for several months... meanwhile, I've put maybe 5000 on the car... just rolled 100,000.I had all tires rebalanced... twice. Nothing found. Problem remained. I wondered about CV joints... shop sold me new drive shafts... Vibration remains.The car needed brakes... I put all new disks, pads, drums & shoes... stops good. Still vibrates.I notice the steering wheel is now canted to the right when going straight. Shop could not find anything loose on front end, recommended an alignment (which I have not gotten to yet).I am noticing a noise with the vibration... Noise when going straight, Noise when taking gentle right off ramp. Less/no noise when taking gentle Left off ramp. I'm thinking about maybe a wheel bearing? My thought is the load changes pressure on the bearings as it corners. Should I be looking at anything else?Russ

That was my thought is wheel bearings... I know you limited in ability Russ but if you can jack up the front axle so it just clears the ground. Then grb top and bottom and try rocking up and down. There should be no movement.

That's just what my car did when it had a bad wheel bearing. I didn't notice vibration so much as the noise which was audible only while going straight and curving to one side.

I have a good jack... I can try checking it. If it is the bearing, I'll probably have to get help. If we figure out the problem, maybe I can actually get it fixed. Maybe it had to get bad enough to hear the noise. Worthless manditory inspections... it passed!!
