Steering wheel shake?
Yesterday I replaced my front brake pads on my 2010 Subaru Impreza. Today when I got on the highway i noticed that at about 60-65 mph my steering wheel starts shaking. So I pulled off into a parking lot and tightened down the lugnuts a little bit more but it kept doing it on the way home. This doesn't happen when applying the brakes and it does not pull to one side when I apply the brakes. What should I try?
Was it shaking before the brake work? If not, did you just the pads? I always recommend replacing the rotors too. Recheck your work, but I think rotors will be your issue. Also check the balance of the tires and condition of the tires themselves and alignment. But the lugs were loose? Always tighten the lugs down with a torque wrench, 80-100ft-lbs. that way you know they are tight enough.
Usually at high speeds, if ur not applying the brakes, and it vibrates its the tires not balanced properly or something wrong with them. Did u switch the tires? This too can sometimes cause it. As a side question did u do tighten the bearings properly, with not to much play?
