Abarth Breaking & Wobbling Problems
« on: January 11, 2018, 05:05:05 pm »
Hi guys,

Recently got an abarth as a bit of a project car. Needs some TLC lets say! It wobbles at the front when driving a little harder than normal city driving or in general at 40mph or over.

I'm thinking maybe its the driveshafts, so I'm on the hunt for an abarth which is being broken. Although it seems to be a rather rare find.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Maybe you know of a different problem for the wobbling or maybe you know where an abarth is being broken!

    Wobbling will likely be driveshafts as you suspect, a damaged wheel or a wheel thats badly out of balance.

    I'd get the cheapest option checked first, and go from there.  :thumb:

    It's lowered on some poor quality FK coilovers. The ride is terrible and I wonder if it could be a square wheel too. Driving over the typical UK road can't be good for them!

    Long shot you'll see and reply, but did you fix it?
