Vibration In Left front

Hey guys,

I'm having an issue when I get up to speed in my focus. At anything above 70kph the car vibrates, I can feel it threw the steering wheel and pedals. Also in the passenger seat it feels as if you have a massager running under your feet. If I slow the cars speed to below 70kph the vibration becomes unnoticeable and ehen the car makes a turn at speed (70-80kph) the vibration again disappears. I assumed the wheel was rubbing but can find no evidence of this. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Colin

its probably the tires, i have some aftermarket tires and when i got them rotated for the first time the steering wheel was shaking madly. bottomline, the dealership told me that it was a manufacturing problem, "bad ride quality", due to a bad batch of tires, check the warranty, if not covered see if the back ones are any better.

most of the time that speed is too low to feel a tire balance.

and you won't feel a front tire imbalance through the floor board

check your axle
