didn't know where else to put this...

if i'm doin 60kmph and over... going around a right hand bend (sharp or not) steering wheel will vibrate bad... but if i go around a left hand bend.. it will not vibrate...

would alignment fix this? and/or does it sound like wheel bearings?

thanks

Wheel bearings or perhaps a tie rod end. How about changing some wheels around to rule out simple things like tyres.

id say alignment, my old XF ute did stuff like that all the time, got a alignment and that fixed it.

Im going with Benji, wheel bearings or worn steering knuckels can cause wheel shimmy, also out of round tyres can do the same.
