My Del sol is shaking when i am in the 55-65 mph zone. anyone have any idea why it is doing that?
yeah most likely a wheel/tire out of balance
Also check the axles to see if there good or not. My boy had that problem and it was the axles. TRY IT OUT
and this is not an engine building question.
If it is the axles or tires why is it only doing it between 55-65 mph
Think of it this way. You are swinging a weight, tied to the end of a rope, above your head. The faster you spin it, the more force you need in order to keep it from slipping out of your hand. This force is due to centripetal acceleration. Same thing happens with an imbalance in your tire. Only the force is transmitted via vibration. Same thing with the axles if the bearings are shot.
Also due to the fact that the majority of the wheel balancing machines out there dont go over 50mph. When I worked at Honda, we had one that spun way faster, which had better results.
Try and find a place that sells performance wheels and tires and also does balancing and alignment and such. They will be more likely to have a faster spinning balancing machine, which will help you out with your problem.
That is.....if this is actually the problem.........
Check all the other stuff as well.
