Hello everyone 

This is my first post here and i hope you can help me with my problem.

I own suzuki jimny 2018 1.3 MT black raptor lift kit  225/r15 tyres .
Am suffering from a wobble at 80-85 km/hr even after i put the shims i still have the wobble sometimes i feel like its going to catch the death wobble .

I lift the car from the ground and checked the king pin bearing for both front tyres and it seems good they are not wobbling with and without braking .

any help or advice ?

Welcome to the forum. The lift kit that you have is how tall and does it have any form of castor correction? Also does it have a steering damper fitted? The thing is that once you start fitting bigger tyres and taller suspension the tendency of the suspension/steering as a whole system is to become increasingly prone to wobble even if everything is in good condition.

One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.

Hi lambet.
There is no castor correction and am not sure if it 2 or 3 inch kit.

I installed the stock shocks and coil springs and the problem remain the same .
I made 2 times wheel balance and alignment the wobble will decrease but will not go but later it will come back the same wobble .

Now it need also alignment after replacing the new axle tube because i already bent the the old axle tube so far :( .

When i steer to left it not turn full 2 turns and for the right it turn 2 and alittle more .

When i see the car from the out side i feel like the left tyre is a little bent to insinde from the upper part but for the right tyre its standing straight no bent to inside.

I know its a complicated problem but am trying hard to figure out what cause these problems and am looking for your help and advice .
