Wheel Wobbles on Patrols

Patrol Wheel Wobbles - It is well documented that this issue presented on new vehicles under warranty.  Contributing factors may include and/or be a combination of:
 
  • Wheel balance
  • Out of round tyres (as opposed to out of balance)
  • Loose wheel bearings
  • Insufficient castor
  • Worn or urethane panhard bushes
  • Worn drag link
  • Adjustment of steering box
  • Worn tie rod ends
  • Cracked panhard mount at chassis
  • Steering damper unserviceable
Therefore it is reasonable to assume that the above issues contribute to wheel wobbles and are not the underlying cause.
Usually a combination of the above faults being rectified fixes the issue.
