    So I've this as well as many people on here do and no amount of balancing, road force balancing, ride matching, alignments, or new tires have been able to alleviate the problem. I have seen a couple posts on here about steering flutter and also the mention of adjusting the preload on the steering rack. I found this post for the lexus GS 400's that have the same problem and I'm thinking about giving it a try. Has anybody else tried this and what were the results?

    Here's the link I've found to some info :

    I have the same problem, I was told I have a wheel that is slightly out of shape..had to use alot of weight on it to get it to balance as well as a little extra air pressure. As soon as I loose a little air it comes back.

    So no one has adjusted the preload on their steering rack?
