    Front wheel shimy

    I have some front wheel shimy on my 355 Fiero replica.Could it be the new 1 inch spacers I used?They are not hub centric and I assume that is the issue?

    Possibility, they offer hub and wheel centric for a reason. Verify your wheels are in balanced, check ball joints and etc.

    Using spacers that are not hub centric will result in shaking

    This outfit made mine. Hub and wheel centric if you decide to replace them.

    Reasonable pricing and look nice.

    Okay, I thought I knew a little about suspensions but I have never heard the terms "hub centric" and "wheel centric". What does that mean?

    It is the protrusion that aligns everything on center. Usually about 2.5" in diameter, the rotor is centered and the wheel is centered on it so the wheel studs are not doing all the work.
