This is our 2nd corvette, last one was
a 90 coupe. This 96 has the same body
style. With top off, excessive shimmy
that shows up in steering wheel, no
matter what speed the car is going.
Have set tire pressure acording to mfg.
specs. 30 to 35 psi range. Had the
front tires balanced at 80 mph.
Still have the shimmy in steering wheel.
I've found no lose parts in front end
or any damage, with car having only
27,100 miles at time of purchase.
With top on there is no shimmy. Called
local Chevy dealer who has a service
rep. that knows corvette's, I suppose,
he said it is normal? The 90 coupe that
we had before, was fine with the top
off! Can anybody help?
