    Vibration??

    I have had this problem for a couple of months now and it is starting to bug me. I have a vibration that occurs ONLY when I am cornering to the left at speed above about 40km/h. It sounds as if something is rubbing on either the rear of front right hand wheels. I took it to the place that fitted my tires and they hoisted it up and had a look but could find no signs of tires rubbing or anything like that. I has to be a problem on the right hand side because this is where the weight is shifted to when you corner to the left. The guy at goodyear said it could be a torsion bar problem but he admitted he had no real idea. Has anyone else out there ever experienced this or think they know the cause of the problem?

    Yeah sort of but i had a wheel alignment a few months a go. It sort of makes the whole car vibrate really. I'm not sure if the sound is resinating from the front right wheel or the rear right wheel. Would a faulty torsion bar cause symptoms like this?

    if the baffles are gone in your centre muffler they create a great vibration doing LH corners
