Of lately I've been feeling.......yes feeling a slight thumping vibration through the floor board as I slow down. I dont want to assume that its coming from my left front wheel, but I can feel the vibration go fast or slow as the car drives. I feel it more when I slow down or if making a slow left turn.
I have had this with my car as well. Dose your car start shaking around 65 to 80kl, or when you slow down. If so mind did to. What i did is take it to the mech and got him to do a wheel alinement. Sorry cant spell LOL
But after he did that i did not have any problems. So try that and see if it works. I paid 120.00 to get it done. Hope that helps.
Thanks guys............My tires are in excellent conditions. I do need my wheels ballanced; but I dont think I need and alignment....the car rides straight. After the ballancing I will check my bearings.....its sounds like it could be the problem; everything else(brakes,tires) are ok.
I do notice that I feel the soft thumping vibration on slow left turns....but I will update after the ballancing.
