VW , FRONT END SUSPENSION PROBLEM, WHEEL WOBBLE

2000 Volkswagen GTI • 190,000 miles

Just wanted to get some other thoughts on my problem.

I have a 2000 GTI with 190,000. She's been great to me so far.

Recently I started noticing that at low-ish speeds, my front left wheel seems to wobble when I make left turns and only left turns. Is usually happens when I am going 15-40 miles per hour. Above or below that, there are no issues.

I'm thinking my tie rod needs to be replaced. Does this sound right to anyone else, or is there another possibility?

Thanks for the help!

We don't think and guess and so must you. You need to check what is loose or worn before coming to a conclusion. It could be wheel bearings, steering tie rod ends or rack ends, suspension bushes, ball joints, and the list can go on.

Get it checked first.
