Default RE: wobbly wheel

My neighbor's Earthquake had a wobbly wheel and the problem ended up being a pin that had been pushed out one side of the axle. If you look at part BS903-013 in the diagram below, the pin is the one that sits inside the steering knuckle. Try taking the wheel off and pulling the axle through the back side and make sure everything is still assembled correctly. On the Earthquake style hubs, it's easy for this pin to slide out when you take the wheel off if you aren't careful.
