Re: Steering Wheel Shudder


    My brother had a similar problem a while back with his Audi. It
turned out to be tie rod ends.  It would only do it at certain speeds and
seemed to get worse at higher speeds.  Try jacking up a front wheel until
the tire clears and then push and pull on the wheel to see if there is
any play.  Chances are that is your problem.  Good luck.
