RE: Wobble: Sorted!

Letting down the tyres has done the trick! Fronts now running at 24 psi and
although there is a slight wobble on hitting a bump at 65 it quickly dampens
out rather than developing into a whole body shake.

Thanks to all.

IMHO that's way way too low, especially for any high-speed driving.
You'll wear them out in no time, and the braking and steering
performance is likely to be badly compromised.

It would be better to fix the problem, rather than mask it by running
on flat tyres. All you are doing is adding inertia to the steering to
cover up the excess play elsewhere.

I dunno - handbook pressure is 26F for all load conditions, so it's not that
far out.

Nevertheless, I agree with you that this should be a temporary fix while the
real problem is identified and corrected.

never run 'em that low on any of mine. I think the 750s on the SIII might
be at about 28 though. not checked 'em - they don't look soft...

You're right, but I always found 26 to be way too low. 30-32 always
drove much better and the car was much more stable under braking /
cornering.

My handbook and HBOL both say 28 for the fronts, but I agree that it drives
better at 30 ish which is what I was running originally. I'll try 28 as a
compromise between 26 and 30 this week.
