Car: 2007 Pontiac G6 (3.5L engine)
Problem: Front-end vibration
I feel the vibrations primarily in the steering wheel. However, I also slightly feel it in my foot resting on the gas pedal and floor and ever so slightly in my seat.
The vibrations start around 20-30mph but continue through at least 80mph
I feel it while going straight and also while turning.
There is no sound (humming, banging, etc); just the feeling of vibration.
Braking doesn't seem to worsen or fix the issue.
What could be causing this?
I just replaced the wheel hub/bearing on my front right wheel.
I've quadruple checked the lugnuts -- they're tight on both front wheels.
I think my front right brake caliper is stuck, but I do not think this is the source of my vibration because the pads are not smoking or burning, so could it really be dragging that badly??
tires appear to be in good shape with relatively even wear. (Nothing suspect).
Since the vibration is constant at most speeds, it seems unlikely to be a wheel balance issue.
I don't think it's a wheel hub issue because I also don't hear the growling/humming sound I heard when the old one went bad.
- However, the vibration only arose after my work on the right wheel hub, so I wonder if I screwed something up??? (Seemed to simple to screw up).
CV joint also seems unlikely due to a lack of "clicking" on sharp turns.
