Gday dudes,

just wandering if any1 can shed a bit of light on my dilema.
my car has been parked without moving for a few months and now when you go over 100ks the steering gets real wobbly.
ive been told it could be the tyres balance, b ut i think it might be sumthing to do with the suspension.

wheels need balancing..... might as well do a wheel alignment too.

If it still does it then the tyres might be shagged

If the car was sitting for a few months without moving, your tyres may have developed minor flat spots..

As stated above. If it was fine before storing for a few months it would be flat spots on the tyres. If its still there after a few days of driving have the wheels balanced.
