Vibration after Front 10mm H&R spacer.

So i had 5mm Match shnell spacers up front and had no issues with vibrations. I recently got H&R 10MM spacers and the steering wheel vibrates around 65+mph. Is there any reason as to what is causing this? Is it normal? Thanks in advance guys.

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...

Moving the wheels out puts additional loads on the bearings and can affect the alignment. Neither one is particularly good for the vehicle. The thing was designed for a particular track, and changing it can create problems. You may need to get the front end realigned or the tires rebalanced. If the spacers are not perfect, they also may not center properly, throwing balance off.
