Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
Yeah, bent wheel was my second guess. If it's not either of these I think this might also be a symptom of the flex disc (aka guibo) needing to be replaced. I'm not sure, though, I haven't had any problems with mine yet (knock wood).
mine was actually cause by a ball joint and a weak control arm bushing, the ball joint would start the shimmy and the control arm would make it worse, but if I went faster it was fine and if I went slower it was fine, it really freaked me out.
Can anyone help me figure out why my steering wheel vibrates when I drive between 45-65 MPH? When I am driving slow or 90MPH, the car drives perfect. Thank you for all of your help!
Did you try rotating your tires back to front? Note: if they are directional tires, left rear to the left front & right rear to right front! If they are not directional, then RF to LR & LF to RR! If the the vibration moves to the back then you know you have an issue with those wheels!!! If not , then you might have an issue with the front end components!

If you are running aftermarket wheels they may need a hub-centric ring to fit snuggly on tha hub... if you are running stock wheels then jus disreguard this but yeah start with wheel balance and then check the suspension components like ball joints and Control arm bushings which can cause similar symtoms as u were describing..
Hello, may sound crazy, but if none above have result you can check the flex disc between the front section of the driveshaftand the output flange of the transmission should be checked for cracks, tears, missing pieces, or distortion. Check for worn bolt hole bores in the flange. It happends to me once and after I replace the flex, Problem solve.
