    wheel shake

    sometimes my front end goes really bad wheel wobble, they wheels start goiing leaft and right very quick and it shakes the whole car, it i dont fight with the wheel it usually stops but has gotten worse!
    I have about 7 degrees of caster and toe in is 1/16th, transit steering box all adjusted correctly, everything else seems to be as tight as it should with virtually no wear.

    any suggestions......
    a quick fix is to fit a steering damper ,i used a vw camper one ,it stops this happening,but only masks any other problems you may have,but stops you being nervous every time you drive the car, i have a jago axle on mine,it doesent like any toe in at all,but the biggest problem i hade is with firestone crossplys,took them off and fitted radials ,now its a totally different car.gone from a 60 mile an hour car to 120 with radials,
