Bad Vibes


Recommended Posts

Recently replaced a very leaky steering box on the 110, without damage to myself or said vehicle.

So wife goes off shopping in it. When she gets back "there's a really bad vibration through the steering and it wanders all over the road"

"Bugger, whats broke this time" thinks I.

So tears apart the front end and replaces anything that that looked iffy, even reset the swivel pre-load.

Goes for test drive and bugger me if the damn thing was virtually un-drivable.

Re-checks all the previous work, gives grief to the place I bought the steering box from, then noticesthe front offside tyre..............

The trashed sidewall was on the inside, looking at the tyre whilst on the vehicle, well it looked perfectly OK. Even when it was lying in the garden..

Smell it madam, I was sitting in it.

It don't help that wheels and tyres were on my previous 110, which sat outside (not on blocks) for over a year!.. At least the Wildcats stayed round - had a vehicle on BFG's that also sat around for about 6 months and the tyres turned oval - tried a dozen times to have em balanced, but they were just carp, ain't bought BFG's since.
