    Just installed Solo Werks S1 Adjustable coilovers on my 2006 2.0t sedan last week and at 45+ mph it's really shaky and the steering wheel wobbles like crazy sometimes on the freeway/highway. Would an alignment fix this? Are the coilovers not all at the same height? Corner balancing? And do...

    Morning Fellas, the steering wheel on my 02 4motion started shaking a couple of days ago. its gets worse at about 40mph. the shaking lighten when i'm on the highway driving above 60mph, i'm guessing the speed is canceling out the shakes a bit. but what could be causing the steering wheel to...

On a trip to my old homestate...

    Ok the problems with my car started about 6 months ago. It would start shaking occasionally for a minute or two, then I could usually accelerate through it and the shaking would stop. The check engine light would flash when the car was shaking. On advice from friends and due to some engine codes...
