Default vibration

we have a toyota camry 2.00 ltr auto that has a vibration that is noticeable
under acceleration at around 50-60 mph and has a very slight wobble in the
steering noticeable at low speed, 5 mph. the wheels have been balanced and
alignment has been checked. anybody have any thoughts on this would be
appreciated.

I would wonder if your car possibly could have belt seperation in one of
the front tyres. This should have shown up during balancing, but if the
guy who did the work was really busy , as they usually are, may not have
noticed. And a tyre with a seperation can balance okay. If it were my car
I would try putting the fronts to the rear and bring the rears up and see
if it makes any difference.

txs mate, the tyres have been replaced, i was wondering if it might not be
somethinh that has been bent or if the slight shimmy at low speed may
indicate a problem with the steering, your thoughts are appreciated.
cheers phil

I would have the motor mounts and the half-shafts checked.

Aye,....get underneath (safely) and see if there is any sideways movement in
the drive-shafts. A slight amount is OK,..but a 1/4" or more is not. If
there is movement, try to discern where it is.

Worn CVs can set up a "thrum-thrum" noise at that speed,..sometimes with a
slight vibration..
