+1 on tie rod ends. i had a shake at 65 plus, and braking anywhere above 40mph. did the wheel shake test, took it apart and the outer tie rod ends were shot, after removing the nut they fell out no hammer needed. rotors are warped a touch but this cut my vibration or "shaking" by 80%

Take a pry bar or cro-bar and get under the car where the ball joints are. Pry between the spindle and lower control arm. If the lower ball joint is busted it will flex and be visible.

It isnt the pads. I have hawk pads and this doesnt happen. How is your wheel alignment. My friend has an VIII, shook very bad in his steering wheel. He got an allignment done and it was all good to go. Has your car been lowered with coils or coilovers? If it has, I would recommend an allignment if you havent already done so.

NO it was not lowered. Tires are not getting an unusual wear. But anyway, can wheels go out of alignment by themselves???

Wheel weights can fall/get knocked off. I once found a shiny new one on my garage floor after new tires.

Unless the tires are cupped or have uneven wear, poor alignment shouldn't cause the steering wheel to shake.

Yes, due to road conditions...bumps...pot holes...and anything else the road offers causes the alignment to change...also changing tires it's recommended to get an alignment...

If it would be caused by tie rods, which ones most likely??? Outer or inner??

Well, you raise the car and check for play in the steering. If there is play then check the outer tie rod ends. You can see any movement. If they are okay then it has to be the inner or maybe play between the rack and pinion. I've also heard of the entire steering rack coming loose and moving.

All these things are kinda unlikely except the outer tie rod ends. I had to replace them on my DSM.

It does not happen all the time. Sometimes it's OK. Its shaking mostly on the straights after the turns (on highway).

I'd suspect balance in this case.

The Perrin PSRS should help this problem, I have the same issue and plan on installing this kit really soon and will post back to let you all know if it does.

Do you have a pulsating brake pedal as well? check your rotor runout, shouldn't be more than .003".
