Have a Columbia 400 with a nose wheel shimmy. It is very light below 20kts and increases to moderate between 25 and 28kts. After 30kts it stops. Tire is balanced, bearings are good, strut is serviced and I'm out of ideas on what to do to stop this shimmy.

Any thoughts are much appreciated! Thanks!

There's a lot of discussion on nose wheel shimmy over on . When you did the strut service, what kind of strut oil did you use? ... mmy#p41897 (You have to join the forum to read).
