My 85 Daytona has a wobble at low speeds. It is fine when going 35+ MPH but at 15 to 20 it wobbles. I have changed wheels tires to see if this is the problem but is not. Car track straight. The tires are also new (under 500 miles on them).

Any thought to what this could be?

Brake Rotor?

Maybe a worn cv joint?

I would not suspect a brake part unless the wobble changes if the brake is applied or not. I'd bet on a CV joint.

Any recent service where an axle may have been over-extended or the inner joint may have separated and lost its needle bearings?
The right inner joint is a couple of inches from the hot catalyst and after a few years the grease will cook and harden.
The outer joint problems usually show up as a 'clatter' noise on parking lot turns as that is when they articulate the most.
Reman axle(s) may be the answer.

Looked at all the suggestions. I checked engine alignment. Was off by 1/16". That was not it. Went to get a wheel alignment and it was bad back tires. No more wobble.
