RE: steering oscillation 90-120 Kph
I agree with Aleksander's diagnosing procedure. Another thing it
might be is the tire itself. It could have a high lateral force or
lateral first harmonic non-uniformity. Try to target which tire is
suspect and replace it. The speed range that the distrubance
happens would lead me to believe that it's a lateral harmonic
problem if this has been happening since the tires were new.
