Lift Off Weave


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

When I bought my 110 (2000 TD5) it suffered from horrible handling and a serious weave if you backed off the throttle or braked hard at anything above 50 MPH.

Since then I've changed the suspension to Gwyn's challenge kit with OME springs / dampers all round and also fitted a X-Eng De-Flex ARB (probably wasn't necessary but hey ho)

Handling on and off road is massively improved (yes it was worth the cash) but I still get a bit of a shimmy when braking or backing off after being flat out on a motorway, even though they look ok would I be correct in assuming that Radius Arm Bushes are the likely issue? (Radius arms are standard as they aren't in Gwyn's kit)

If radius arm bushes are suspected am I better sticking with original as I have trashed Polybush ones in the past (yes they were greased before fitting)
