Hi all KK Owners,
About two weeks ago I put my KK 2011 to good use and passed with flying colors.
However, while driving around I hit a small tree stump bending the sub frame (driver side) which is now replaced with a brand new one.
Since this and while driving at the same speed on smooth road highway I can feel the front passengers side wheel vibrate which is flowing into the steering wheel. The vibration gets loud for about 3-4 seconds, goes away for 3-4 sec, then loud for 3-4 sec and so on it's like the wheel is out of balance, but
I have a friend who is a qualified mechanic with his own work shop and not even he can work it out.
These are the things we have tried,
We have put brand new Cooper A/T3 All-Terrain tires, which are balanced and aligned after the sub frame was repair.
We have rotated the tires.
We have removed the rear drive shaft, test driven and still there.
Done an inspection on the CV joint, ball joints all good.
We have checked the bearings, by hoisting it up spinning the wheels and giving them a shake and there is no noise there, which has been confirmed by a second mechanic.
We have checked the drive shaft for any missing weights, they are all still there.
Next week we are going to hook up some microphones to the under body and see if we can pin point the problem.
If you can suggest anything that might cause this type noise it would help.
