    Intermittent wheel wobble

    Weird thing I’m having with my mk2 escort

    Really violent intermittent wheel wobble as if the wheel is going to come off

    happened on the last rally

    Wheels are balanced no play in the track control arms or track rod ends

    no noticeable play on the steering rack

    any ideas folks??

    the fact its intermittant may be down to front geometry, sometimes issues can be hid / magnified by the setup
