Got a very annoying problem.

My 9-3 front end vibrates/wobbles when turning LEFT and when I'm accelerating past 40mph, when I'm turning right I dont get the wobble

I thought it might have been a CV joint/Tri pod bearing but I've had the whole passenger side driveshaft replaced and its still there.

I have been told that there is "excessive" play when the driveshafts are connected?

So after reading other peoples issues I'm assuming it could be a diff bush or bearing? The gearbox doesnt leak any oil.

Has anybody got any suggestions? I've been told by a few people that it could be a wheel problem, but with it only happening when turning left/going over a certain speed I'm thinking its more of a mechanical problem?

Any help/info appreciated.

I have the same issue and a repair shop is telling me it is the motor mounts, they want to repace all three motor mounts.

Dave, any more work to eliminate your wobble. I had the shop replace motor mounts for me and it was better. got worse again and I see that they did a poor job and the rubber shims fell out! I will redo this and see if the wobble stays away.
