    Problem: disappearing and appearing body and steering wheel vibrations, most strongly felt above 110km / h to 140km / h
    Tires checked and balanced, the same is the case with another set. In addition, if the cause were tires rather vibrations would occur all the time. There is nothing worrying about suspension. Geometry also set.
    It is possible that this is an internal joint, the question is how to determine that it really needs to be replaced? And if so, how to determine which one?
    Automatic gearbox.

    Do you feel these vibrations at different speeds or only in the range 110-140km / h?

    A set of tires? Did someone check the rims? Have you changed the front wheels for the rear?
    I had rims, eighth, and oval. One was felt at about 80-90, the other above 110km / h.
    It turned out by accident, the gummy man had trouble balancing the wheels, which did the trick, but this one told me about the rims .

    I had the same situation in Astra and it was a warped brake disc.

    Hello, was the problem solved?
    What was the reason?
    I have been struggling with the same problem for a year now and no mechanic can find out what is the cause.
    The suspension is proven to be stiff and functional
    Tires changed with rims
    The problem probably began after changing the steering gear, although the mechanics say that this one is in working order

    Start by checking the brake discs, is the brake caliper working as it should? Not holding?
    If the brake system is ok, it may be an internal joint, it works well on a raised car, you should see something.
    Possibly, the converter may fail.

    The inner hinge is made on one side. Acceleration loads. You can change the right one with the left one, there are no such forces when braking with the engine. Mostly as internal joints usury is telepiece when accelerating. As for vibrations, the cushions on the gearbox side under the engine, the rims with the wheels on the lift, twist or beating. Possibly replace the wheels.

    Discs, calipers checked and everything is ok, so either joints / half axles or a mangle (it was regenerated right after buying the car)
    The worst thing is that for a year and a half, nothing has changed but these vibrations drive you crazy (they are only between 110 and 140 km / h)
