Hi Guys.
Breakdown of the car
04 XR6T
PBR Premium Brake Upgrade

When driving around, every now and then a fairly bad shudder will come from the front end (I think). Notice it through steering wheel, brake pedal, and it gets worse as speed increases. Seems to happen more frequently on freeway driving. It usually will start off light and get worse over a few minutes.

EDIT - Better explanation of this bit: If i come to a complete halt, and then take off again, no vibration on driving. It might come back again 5 mins, 10 mins, 3 hours down the road, or not at all. Ive had it happen twice in 10 mins, and not at all on a 400k trip. It seems to happen more often on smooth roads, ie freeway, rather than highway. I dont notice it on city driving, but thats so slow and stop start but it could be happening.

A whole lot of front bushes and ball joints have recently been done. I didnt notice it happening before this, but didnt really drive it on the highway much before that.

So ... any ideas ??
