Primary cause for Front end shimmy.
I own an '86 Celebrity Eurosport that has been the best car that I've ever had. Now age has caused the typical front end shaking at road speeds. (Above 45 MPH). What is the most common worn parts that cause this? I'm thinking ball joints, would that be right?
No local shops are willing to look at it due to it's age, but to me it's almost a classic.
HINTS; Steering is still tight and smooth.
Putting a tire that is one size larger on the drivers side calms the problem down and you can drive at 65MPH. (Due to shifting vehicle weight?)
Sometimes you can hear a distinct rattle sound from the center under the floor boards at the same time.
