New here, with an old problem...

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been able to smooth out the infamous steering wheel shimmy at 65-80 mph? Anyone ever had the issue and had the problem fixed? Got a turbo that is 26 days old, and today is the 13th day it's been in the shop still trying to get fixed:(

Thanks in advance...

I just got mine fixed at Ray Catena. They replaced one of the tires due to "excessive roadforce" then used wheel weights designated by Porsche then did an alignment and the steering wheel vibration is gone. Thank God.

Thank you for your responses. I wish my fix was that simple, multiple balancing and alignments, static balancing (weights in center of rim as opposed to outer edges) 4 tire replacement. They are changing the steering rack and tie rods and tie rod ends right now.

Itzkirb, what did they do? Still not 100% though? It is acceptable?
