Hi, This is my first post in this section in hope someone could help.

Just bought a vitara jlx se lwb 1994. Whilst driving i get a bit of steering wheel wobble but not constant, usually around 40 mph. I have not ruled out wheel balancing yet.

My other problem is at low speed. If i am manouvering say to park up, when turning the steering, it sort of groans, almost sounding like something is rubbing within the steering rack, if that makes sense.

I have checked the fluid for the power steering and all is well. This is the first time i have owned a 4x4 so new to it all. It cost me £200 and it's superb to drive apart from the above problems.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Paul
