I have a 07 LSV and I am getting a lot of vibration in the steering. Anyone know why this is happening? I don't think my steering cable is bad, but I do know that I have a chipped OJ prop, but it was never this bad before. Getting a new ACME prop before summer.

check your alignment , see if there is any lateral/horizontal play in your prop shaft. Your prop is out of balance...like a car tire ,things don't get better with time

Doesn't take much ,a chip/ding bent blade,you name it . Sounds mostly like a prop issue.Alignment could be out as well from the above as well.

I hope it's just your prop. You'll know soon enough. Sometimes a strike can do more than just nick a prop. Sometimes it's just alignment, but there could be damage to the shaft or just a slight bend in the strut. If you notice it after the new prop you will have to get it checked out.
