Hi all I've got a laud wobble nocking sound coming from my rear left hand side wheel. I cant figure out what it is. Its not my axle because i've had it up on the stands and checked them. The wobble/nocking sound has started to get worse and worse over the last few weeks and now the car wobbles at around 50km/h (if i remember right)

Any idea's? It cant be good and I want it fixed before I hurt my self or the car...

cheers, Nathan

Check wheel bearings, check tires for bubbles/delamination, check the wheels balance, check the bushes, check that all bolts are tight.

The rear wheels aren't balanced but it shouldn't make the car wobble thats why I'm stumped. Ill check out all my bushes though!

I've checked all my nuts and I've had my wheels off two days ago to replace my breaks.
