Did complete brake job this weekend, caliper was seized. Wobble is gone.....

I have never known that when a caliper is seized that it would create a steering wobble at certain speeds.

Seems like it can happen for a lot of reasons. I did put in a new steering stabalizer, it is an even smoother ride!
