I got new tires and brought them back 3 times to get re-balanced cuz i thought for sure that was the problem but it never fixed it. I have been just living with it due to lack of funds but now i have the money to fix it.
There were dents all over the car when i bought it (they have since been fixed). Also, i know she had at least one bad wreck in it because right before i bought it she ran over a guard rail in the snow because she thought it was just a snow bank. She ripped a front ball joint out with that one.
So really it could be anything, i have no idea what else she did to the car. Mechanically everything else is great except this wobble, it is getting on my nerves.
Have you put the car up on jackstands and rotated the wheels under power? Have you visually checked for the wobble? Have you removed the RR wheel and used a stack of washers under at least two lug bolts to hold the rotor on the hub and measured runout? Have you pulled the rotor and thoroughly cleaned the hub/rotor interface (although this is generally done once you've determined excessive runout. Problems can often happen when you remove a wheel and the rotor turns on the hub and gets cocked on a bit of rubbish between the hub and rotor.)
Until you have done this and reported back, anything anyone can tell you is pure speculation, especially with a car with previous collision damage.
That being said, there are wheel balancers and wheel balancers. Just because someone says they balanced your wheel(s) doesn't mean it's adequate for one particular car. You generally get what you pay for with wheel/tire maintenance…a road force balance can tell you a lot.
But I would do some work with the car on jackstands first….get a good dial indicator and magnetic stand and use it if your Mark 1 eyeball cannot detect a problem.
