Q: question about inbalance

asked by on

how do you solve the inbalance rear axel

My car has 86000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

On your vehicle, imbalance in the rear is due to rear tire and wheel imbalance although there is always a possibility that a tire in the rear position has excessive "radial force variation" which defect will cause vibration no matter how well balanced the wheel/tire assembly is. Looseness in the suspension and/or wheel bearing problems can also cause, or contribute to vibration. If the tires are in good shape and have no irregular wear, to solve imbalance in the rear the very first thing that is attempted is to have the tire/wheel assemblies carefully re-balanced. If the tires are damaged or have irregular wear, to diagnose or resolve an imbalance problem you will often have to start with new tires though because tires themselves are often the source of the imbalance problem. With new tires and undamaged wheels, all properly balanced, any remaining vibration or imbalance problem in a car of your design will be suspension related. If you desire an inspection, diagnostic and repair in order to get this problem resolved, simply request a suspension inspection - rear and the responding certified mechanic will get this problem resolved for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
