Your front wheel(s) do seem to be out of balance, doubt they would be balanced when you get them, do they have any small weights on them? go to a garage which does tyres and ask them to balance your wheels for you, should do it at a small fee.

What size are the alloys? I had 17's on my old 1.2 corsa and when it hit 70mph it was scarey, used to shake like mad.

It may be worth going to a garge and getting your tracking done. When lowering a car it puts the tracking out. It only costs bout £10-15. Should help at least a little bit.

Has your steering wheel moved out of line at all, ie it's slightly to the left or right when driving?

Usually a sign of the tracking being out.

could be a number of things.

sticky calliper, warped discs, wishbones on the way out, wheels out of balance.

what offset are the wheels you have? are you running spacers at all?

Yeah, get your wheels balanced. Is your tracking okay? Do you have alloy wheels..? Sometimes when you don't have spacers fitted, alloys seem like they're vibrating at high speeds. It happens with me. It's not unsafe, just annoying. I'd get your wheels balanced & check out your tracking mate. :driver:

i think the main cause of the wobbling at speed is probably the worn ball-joint, is the warped disc on the same side as the worn ball-joint?
when i first got mine the discs were slightly warped, after i changed them i'd noticed the ball-joints on both sides were slightly worn but when the weight is taken off each side when it's on a ramp, you can't feel any play in them when you rock the wheel. its a strange thing, it won't show itself up until you're doing a decnet speed or seriously pull on the wheel.

Mine pulled bad to the left last week and was feeling heavy then the
inevitable happend got a flat called my break down and the alloy was smashed on the inside by the breaks and rim had come away from tyre so he hammerd it back again , all because i reversed over a high curb accidently to get out when some idiot blocked me in .


Dosent sound like that thoug depends how hard it spulling and if your loosing air out of the tyres that can give uneaven ballance.

Gd luck hope you get it sorted

Putting wheel spacers on would on make the offset even lower, and probably cause problems tbh. You may need to take them off when you lower it.
