That could be an alignment issue, a brake caliper issue, a broken tie rod. Any number of things. I would suggest getting it to a service center of some sort. CHEERS

I have a 2008 Infinity QX-56 and it shakes terribly when I apply the brakes when driving at highway speeds. It also feels like the suspension is bad when you go over a bump or hit a pot-hole.


Warped brake rotor usually cause high vibration at high speeds. But you can also feel it at lower speeds. But bad ball joints and tie rod end will cause vibration at high speeds. Ball joints will pop at pot holes, sometimes. Tie rods can be felt in the steering wheel at a stop. Move the wheel slightly to the left and right, you can feel/hear a tap as you turn it.

My steering wheel on Merc C280 1995 model. While driving I can move the steering wheel slightly left to right, but the car remains straight. Then the car will veere right and then left slightly without me...


Check steering wheel nut is tight, sometimes it may run loose. If it is tighten to specs and is still happening, splines may be worn on steering wheel.

My 03 Monte Carlo ss swayed left up right when it rains, when not wet out i have no swaying issues


With the exception of too much power and bald tires on takeoff, there is little to affect straight line performance once you are underway and rolling. If the car is pulling to the left read the following.

The exceptions to this are the traction control system and the ABS braking system. The wheels in particular have controls which count the revolutions of each wheel and make adjustments.

Either system uses the brakes to synchronize the spins of the wheels from side to side. The front brakes would be most likely cause the greatest pull to one side or the other. If the sensors are getting wet and shorting, then it could cause the loss of a spin sensor getting its information to the master controls. This does not mean the rear wheels can not tug at the brakes and cause the car to veer to one side, but it is less prominent.

You need someone to examine both the ABS and the Traction Control systems. Many have scanning machines to evaluate problems. Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance autoparts can scan for FREE. But there are difference in the scanners and only the most expensive will do these functions.

Most likely the brakes on the left front will be more worn from dragging due to the brake being applied automatically.

If you mean to say the car wanders left to right when wet, then tire condition and worn suspension parts can show up when ground friction is reduced. This would be a little like hydroplaning and is caused by thin threads and loose suspension. When dry, one tire holds the direction you point to and keeps the other tire in line, but when wet the two sides battle for direction. Your good side loses its dominant grip.

You probably should try to get a scan from one of the autopart stores and tell them what you want checked. The ABS and the Traction Control as they may not have the better scanner.

An Alignment shop which can offer full services(some can't) would inspect all the joints, tires and brakes. Some give estimates in advance of repairs.

Pulls sharply to the left when brakes are applied.


Front disc brake calipers are hanging up or a faulty suspension or steering part.

When I press on the brakes, I feel a pulse sensation and my 05 corolla doesn't stop right away in cold weather. The car kind of veers to the left sometimes. Do I need to replace the pads, rotors or both?


You need to replace the front pads and resurface or replace the rotors. Also check your slides for the calipers and make sure they are clean and well lubed when yo reassemble the brakes. If the slight pull still occurs either nthe flex hose or caliper is starting to get weak. But I think for now doing the front pads and rotors will solve your problems.

Steering veers to the left?


Drive slowly down the middle of a straight road, let the steering wheel go and apply the brakes. If the car wants to turn by itself check your ball joints and shocks. If the car remains straight you may have an irregular wearing tire which causes it wonder at higher speeds.
I hope this helps

Brake noise from rear drivers disk brake when turning


sounds like the front brakes need replacing, that what the squeal is. They are made to do that so you know when to replace them

Noise and vibration above 50 mph


Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.

Shaking in the front end


Usually shaking of the steering wheel brought on by going over a 'bump' is caused by a suspension component problem. Since u just had the brakes done (no history of this type problem before?), I am wondering if possibly something was not tightened properly during the repair (this would have the same effect of a worn component). I would bring it back (carefully) to the service facility, and ask them to check the front suspension components, and explain what happened while driving.
U could check a couple of things yourself, if u want. Jack up one side of front of vehicle, place on safety stand, grab tire at 3 oclock and 9 o'clock positions, try forcing the tire as if u wanted to turn the wheel to the right, and then left., U should not have any 'play' in the wheel. Next, grab the tire at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock position, try to force the tire in and out . There should be no 'play'. Repeat on the other front tire, if you have movement when grabbing and trying to move the tire, u need ball joints or tie rods. A slight bump in the road should not result in what u describe unless something is seriously wrong. Have this checked asap, as this is not safe. Let me know what u find.
