Yeah, True.A tiny amount of play can have a huge impact on things
I can do that, these wheels are not original,I got them from @CraigB a few years back from a fox platform Lincoln hence the missing center caps up front, panther bearing hubs are larger than fox.Another stupid idea, but those rims look original. Have you have them checked for trueness? Maybe after so many years they are out of round, or slightly warped.
Might be easy to do a imprecise check on your own. Get the car up in the air and rig some kind of fixture on the ground that points at the outer bead. Spin the tire and see if the bead visually wobbles in comparison to your fixed point.
If it doesn't, it just means it's not horrible though.
You don't think you got the races seated all the way?I can do that, these wheels are not original,I got them from @CraigB a few years back from a fox platform Lincoln hence the missing center caps up front, panther bearing hubs are larger than fox.
@CraigB, I can try rotation but I’m suspecting there may be Something up with how I put the bearings into the front rotors...
Not exactly fun...Pull it apart and check.
One piece. I replaced front and rear U joints a couple years back because over 70mph you would this growling noise. After replacing them, only on coasting above 75mph would get a growl, so something still isn’t right but I ignored it because I don’t go on the highway that much and it moved the problem out of the way for the majority of my driving.Before I finished reading I wanted to say driveshaft! How is it set up? One piece? Center bearing?
