Wow, sounds like a good one, my only suggestion would be, try changing or machining the brake rotor and double checking to make sure all the caliper hardware is torqued up tight. Possibly a tire? Try switching side to side.

SOURCE: Vibration and noise from front end while driving

Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.

have the rotors machined, shaking when braking is an indication of a warped rotor or drum, even though it may look ok, the rotor can still be warped, it would be a good idea to have the rotors/drums machined and new pads installed if the old ones are 4-5/32'nds or lower. that should take care of your shaking when braking issue

SOURCE: humming noise coming from left front tire, just started two days!

If the tires are wearing normal then its not the ball joint. If it worse while turning one way and quieter turning the other way it a wheel bearing. A ball joint does'nt make a constant noise.

Excessive steering wheel shaking


Most common indicators are. Wheel alignment ( not enough Castor adjustment) worn tie rod end/s Incorrect size tyres ( you have to have the rim sizes the same on both sides ) even though you noticed a difference Loose steering box / rack or worn rack mount rubbers Probably the noise under the floor as the rack is bashed up and down from the wobble. What you describe is castor wobble and some makers recommend 0 castor when in fact the setting should be 1/2 to 1 1/2 degree positive.

2004 yukon denali shakes a little in the front end at speeds 45 to 50 mph..almost feels like driving on a flat tire..what could be the prob?


the front wheels may need balancing or it could be a loose or worn tie rod end or other loose component on the front end, you will need get under the vehicle & have a good look & give the steering components & anything else a good shake to see if you can see anything loose or worn.........hope this helps......cheers.

S430 Mercedes - Front end shaking at 55+


It sounds like you have either a broken steel belt in your tire or a worn out idler arm in your steering assembly. Other causes may be a bent wheel, a flat spot on the tire or worst case your brake rotor / wheel hub may be loose. If the rotor / wheel hub is loose you may have severly damaged wheel bearings. Good luck...

Car steering


There could be numerous problems going wrong. Your car is rear wheel drive so it could very well be a bad wheel bearing. If it is extremely loose it can cause a shake in your steering wheel. You may want to check on the condition of your tires and rims especially the left front. A bad tire can cause a shake and pull. If you know how to use your car jack you can try jacking the vehicle up, and put both hands on your front wheel and move it manually to see if there is looseness. Most shops only charge about 1/2 hour to shake down the front end. BMW parts are expensive so be prepared!
