I have a 2003 oldsmobile Alero replace the wheel bearing,still had the same problem , shake really bad 30mph.


Most likely cause: Tire out of balance. Take it to Big 10 or similar and have tire balance checked.

Also consider upper & lower ball joints and tie-rod ends. If these are loose or worn, they will cause premature tire wear which will result in tire bounce that balancing cannot correct.

Get it checked out and let us know results.

after 55 mls. speed my car start shaking, I changed the rack and pinion but the problem still, do I have to alignment it after that change? thanks


you certainly do need to do an alignment after changing a rack, but that will not help a vibration issue. vibrations can be caused from a bent or out of round wheel, out of round tire, out of balance tire, shifted belt in a tire, unbalanced brake rotors, or worn bushings. good luck!

why my 1992 honda accord shakes above 60 mph


there are a few things that are more likely than others .. first tire balance .. if a tire loses a balancing weight or gets its rim dented or if the tire is simply worn .. then you need to rebalance the wheels .. this should be done every year or so anyhow .. a broken cord or belt in a tire will also show up when they try to balance as will a bent rim .. this will tend to shake the car above 50 mph .. thats also not a safe condition since the tire could fail unexpectedly .. you might observe a tires tread wiggling when observed moving from another car or on a rack when you spin the tire .... tires are most likely the trouble but a worn out CV joint will also shake at certain speeds .. usually this shows up at low speeds or as excessive slack in the drive system .. warped rotors are a frequent source of vibration . but usually the problem is most noticable as brakes are applied .. the best bet is to have the tires balanced and inspected .. that will give you lots of information .. one more thing you dont see as much anymore is wheel vibration at higher speeds caused by worn ball joints or tie rod ends .. the wheels will actually oscillate above a critical speed . you will often see cupping on the front tire treads if this happens .. that cupping problem can also be observed when the tires are balanced .. the tie rod ends can be checked with the wheel off the ground .. shake the tire left to right .. excessive slack would mean worn tie rod ends ...
