Steering wheel wobble
Hi, I will start with the bare facts of the matter:
I have a 2004 Nissan Almera (not a bad car by all accounts) however I have been offered a swap for a 2002 special edition Jimny, a lovely looking car in good condition, with bad shuddering on the brakes that turns out to be the rear drums.
He is giving me replacment ones, and has told me on the day we are meant to swap that it has a wheel wobble.
Now having stumbled across the dreaded "death wobble" as it commonly known on the internet, I am a little (or a lot, should I say) concerned. I am no stranger to spanners as I do all my own repairs; it's the cost I am thinking about, I don't want to swap and find out its going to cost a fortune to repair.
I have had a Suzuki Jimny a few years ago with no problem at all, yet I have only just heard of this problem, so to sum things up and the advice I am looking for is this: is it worth swapping even with this problem?
Like I said, I don't mind a little work. It's the cost that is the issue, and I really need a small 4x4 for practical reasons as well as wanting to play too.
I just cant make a decision as what to do, so any imput and advice would be appreciated.
