I noticed a vibration problem in my 86 SE frame (4 speed Muncie) after I returned from Daytona early this week. Between 10 and 20 to 25 MPH, I notice a distinct vibration and the car seems to shudder from side to side a bit. The problem improves significantly at higher speeds but is still noticable. I can think of several things that could cause this type of problem, but wanted to post and see if anyone else has an idea. Could be engine mounts, but I had someone rev the engine while the car was in the driveway and saw no significant movement. I will put the car up in the air soon and try to get a look at the mounts to see if everything is ok.
Other possible causes that crossed my mind are damaged suspension component, lost wheel weight causing vibration problem, or a bad radial tire? Can anyone come up with any other potential problems or a simple way to diagnose the actual cause of the vibration?
