Steering wheel shake

Hi. I have a 58 plate 1.9 with 85k 159 SW which is fab but there is a side to side shake when accelerating between 40 and 50 mph especially if it is uphill with slight left hand lock. If I cruise slowly through 40 to 50 it does not happen.... I have had a new bottom wishbone fitted to the near side and an upper wishbone and driveshaft fitted to the off side but the shake is still there. I think it is also there slightly when accelerating from about 5 to 10 mph also. Is it possibly torque related?? But I'm guessing. Thanks. Ceri

easy thing to start with is check to see if any wheel weights have come off, that would cause vibration through the steering.

Check for a buckled wheel.
