My nose wheel had a bad shimmy and it only seem to get worse the faster I taxied. At my last condition inspection I completely removed the nose wheel bracket and nose wheel axle assembly and cleaned everything up. Then regreased everything and tightened to specs.

Big difference! I wonít say the shimmy is gone completely but itís definitely much better and I have to taxi at a fast speed to get it. Good luck!
