The front end of mine was like a rock for the first year ( I mean no shimmy not stiff or anything)...anyway, put on 17" wheels and had no trouble at all once I had put on the hubcentric rings... still smooth and solid. Then about 2 months ago I started to notice the shimmy at exactly 80-100KPH...55-64 MPH. Had it looked at and the lower control arms were both loose and the right shock was leaking (my shimmy seemed to be from the right).
Would be interesting to know what exactly causes this one... the shock or the control arms (lower).
