06 acura steering wheel shimmering at any speed


Shimmering? You mean shaking? Your front wheels need balancing or your rim is bent. Did you hit a kerb during the winter? Take it into a tire place.

My 23006ft dodge status is shimmering..no matter what speed I drive..what could be wrong with it?


Out of balance tires, or tread wear, or you hit something that has miss aligned your front steering system.

Vibration from front end


Have you checked your tires for uneven wear, bulges? Next would be to check wheel balance and alignment. Finally bushings on steering.

I have found that worn tires sound like bad wheel bearings and can create front end shimmer.

I hope that this helps.

Shaking at low speed


Does it shake all the time, or only when you use the brakes ?
A slow speed shake without using the brakes is most often a bad tire. The alignment only affects how the car steers.

There is a knocking in my driver side front tire,It feels like its going to break off but I dont see anything broke but when I hit the smallest bump or hole it sounds and feels like its going to snap. I...


Dodge is known for using rubber bushings in everything. They don't squeak like the poly ones do but they do rot after 10 or 15 years and cause clunking noises like you described. More than likely your clunking is coming from a tie rod which is what connects your steering wheel to your tires. Crawl under the truck near the wheel and look for the steel bar that hooks up to the back of it. Have a friend turn the wheel back and forth, or grab the bar and give it a hard shake. If there is any play, the bushing is shot. You can replace the tie rod ends yourself using the old ones to compare but it will still need an alignment, so I usually let a shop do it. New poly bushings will cost a little more but you will never have to replace them again. A good alignment shop should charge less than $200

How often should I get my tires rotated? balanced? aligned?


You should rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or when you notice uneven tread wear.You should balance your tires when you buy new ones or see uneven tread wear.You should align your car when you know you hit a pothole,feel vibration.If you are unsure you should ask a certified mechanic.

Very dull steering feel, wheel stays turned even as i slowly rev


Camber and caster settings are off. Have 4 wheel alignment done by a good shop and save your nice tires. Out of alignment will make steering feel heavy and wear tires fast!

When i began to break it feels like I am not going to stop. It shakes so bad it thrusts you all over. I have had 4 wheel alignment, new tires, replaced ball joints and the breaks.


replace front rotors and pads with new napa parts only that should fix the brake issue and make sure you bleed the brakes.

Rear wheel alignment


first of all firestone are rip off artist. you got suckered. next there are struts on the back and yes you should align them however it has more to do with how the tire wears than a steering issue. with only 12,000 miles I seriously doubt there would have been a problem. my solution would have been if one of the front tires was bad i would have replaced it then took the 2 back tires and put them on front and the new tire and other front tire on the back and no alignment would have been needed unless your girlfriend would have complained about it tracking one way or the other. feel free to click on my user tab anytime you need help.... please rate this.........thanks
