    Default shimmy ?

    i've got a shimmy when driving between 55-60mph. It's on the front right side, only in that speed range and gets serious if i apply the brakes in that speed range.

    ideas?

    If you are sure it is from the rt front, try moving that tire to the rear or lt front and see if the problem moves. If the problem does not move I would think the rotor on that wheel is bad. Possibly sticking caliper that haas warpped the rotor.
    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    Could also be unit bearing or ball joints going out.
