Bad shimmey

Hello,

I have an 88bronco. I have a small shimmey in it on the freeway between 60 & 70. I have replaced just about every thing under the front end and it is still there.I have not replaced the u-joints in the front since I bought it three years ago.If anybody has any ideas please let me know.

Check your driveline U joints and make sure the driveline is not damaged. Make sure your tires are ballanced.

Re: Bad shimmey

When you rotated the tires were they also rebalanced"? If not I say thats the problem.
