My front driveshaft spline / slip was the culprit when I had the angry birds .

That was a good link DL. I sprayed my driveshaft U joints with PB and let soak in and the noises are gone. Gonna spray those bolts a few times a day and change out u joints over weekend.

Found another link to share about anything shimmy or wobble related. If you read this and follow all steps and still have a shimmy or wobble, it might be time to trade for a Prius. Mainly wanted this link on my page for future reference.

All this info and i still have a recurring shimmy. Starting to drive myself crazy. Alignment shop, checked everything out again, (i bought a 6month package last time), everything looks good on paper. DW/shimmy is depressing!

Check your wheel balance. I'm willing to bet that you lost a weight or two. It doesn't take much.

Been dealing with occasional shimmy for a while. Ordered set of front control arms from metal cloak and currie steering setup. Also longer brakes lines for front and a OME steering damper. Glad the wheel bearing i put in had warranty, cause i replaced those again as well. Should be running strait by end of next week. Cant wait to post flex pics!

Installed the currie correctlink and that fixed my problems. Now the control arms are just a bonus!

CA's look awesome you'll definitely enjoy them

Soo jealous of that stroker - any chance you have an audio clip of it?

Haha, stroker spun all its bearings. I bought a crate motor. Got about 5k miles on my crate....that how long ive been putting of my stroker project. It will be my project for this winter. The 300ish HP was awesome for about a week. Gonna have a pro help with final assembly next time. Learned a lot during the project. KEEP EVERYTHING SPOTLESS CLEAN!

Free revving a motor (burn outs ) let alone a new motor could be a good indicator as to why the bearings spun.
