I've just diagnosed a similar problem. Mine was ok on the road, till you hit a pothole, or bump, then the steering would go crazy, like a hugely out of balance wheel. A dab on the brakes stopped it. The cause, all 4 U bolts on the front axle were loose, allowing the whole front end to shake, rattle and roll all over the place. Growing old is compulsary, growing up isnt, and

cheers man but i think you are talking about the spring leaf model .i have a independant model,no wobble on front wheels no differance when you brake ,what happens if your propshaft is out of balance,also could rear drive shaft splines into diff cause this noise if worn how do you tell also how do you tell if inner rear wheel bearing is on the way out .ian /edinburgh

Speed-related vibrations are

Speed-related vibrations are normally something out of balance, or a worn bearing, or a broken engine or transmission mount.

If you stay at the same speed, does the vibration continue?

Does it happen upon acceleration and deceleration?

Does it go away if you depress the clutch?

Is it related to wind speed? It could be a loose piece of trim or a even a wiper blade, which would make noise but not a vibration.
