View Full Version : bad bearings?

:help: I am experiencing what i would describe as a very, very, slight wobble in the front end of my 2000 Audi A6. It is noticable from 25 mph to about 80 mph. Above 80mph it rides smooth, like i am riding on rails....as it always should right? The wobble i feel is very subtle. I have replaced all upper&lower control arms....outer tie rods and have tried switching tires from front to back. Lug nuts have been on tight every time and the symptoms are the same with my stocks wheels.....not quite as noticible though....due to the larger sidewall i believe. I did bend a set of rims pretty badly this spring....maybe i damaged something else that i am not looking for.

jack it up and try wiggling the wheel around. When my front was bad the wheel tread would move maybe .25-.5 inch back and forth. Otherwise listen for a humming when turning left or right, turn the radio off and all that when listening for it.

I checked my wheels while i had it on the lift today....not able to get any play out of them when i grab them at top at bottom of wheel. I also swapped tires front to back for s&g's thinking maybe i had a rim that wasn't seated correctly. Still the problem exists. I think at this point i am going to take it in somewhere to get diagnosed.
