High speed rear shimmy after wheel bearing replacement!


Recommended Posts

I replaced a VERY loud wheel bearing over the weekend and felt like I was driving a brand new car until I hit about 145km/h. I now have a pronounced rear shimmy that wasn't there with the old bearing. We used a SIR type tool to press out the bearing so that the knuckle stayed in place. We did whack on the hub to help it in until the axle nut could do it's job, do you think I might have thrown something out of alignment? The reason I chose to replace the bearing in this fashion was to get out of paying for alignment. Any suggestions? The tires are relatively new and were fine before the replacement.

Front or Rear Chris.

If rear I changed mine about 12 months ago and i took pictures of the whole job, used no special tools and with each photo i have written up exactly what is going on, I have indicated the bolts or nuts to loosen remove etc with arrows pointing to them.

The file is 1.8 meg and this is zipped as low as i could get so i think it is too big to upload here, but if you want the file PM me and i will click reply and attach, of course anyone else wanting the file just do the same

Going back to the original post, I have a similar situation with my car. My driver's side rear wheel bearing was making a very annoying squealing sound and I replaced it, placed new ties on the car, and had it aligned. Still there is a high speed vibration that come on about 80 mph. Any ideas? I have a 2001 Boxster, stock.

will need to re-balance your tires.
