Shakes or Wobbles problem
1997 Vauxhall Vectra 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 100000 miles

hi there, I hit the curb at around 15-20mph after sliding in the snow and since have felt a wobbling sensation through the steering wheel. I have minimal knowledge of mechanics but have had a look and can see no apparent damage to front arm or track rod. Could it simply be I have knocked the wheel out of allignment or something more serious? Thanks for any ideas.

Hello
Thanks for the donation.

At 20 MPH, I am sure you have bent some components of your suspension system. Wheel hubs, ball joints, wheel bearings all need inspected. Tire will also need inspected to ensure balancers are still mounted and tire has no internal damage of cords.

Thanks for using 2CarPros. Com!
