Question about Cars & Trucks
You need to get this checked out immediately. You are most likely looking for worn out tie rod ends, ball joints and the rest of the steering assembly depending on what you are driving. It is also likely to be a combination of bad parts so make sure shocks or struts and control arm bushings are checked as well.
If you are driving a jacked up truck with 33" or bigger tires it could also be the infamous "death wobble". There's a reason they call it that and you will need to get stabilizers attached to the drag link to eliminate it. They look like long shock absorbers and mount between the frame and the drag link. Hope this helps.

This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!

I had a truck at work that did the same thing. Only if you hit a pothole. In my case the front tires were way out of balance. Hope it's something that simple.

Yep tie rod ends both control arms and a frame bushings. If you had time and could send some pictures I could be more presise and could give you a detaild ideal on how to test the entire front end, but you do not seem to want a lot of help as this would require me to give you two hours of instruction and testing parts that you are not aware of..

sounds like a wheel bearing or ball joint do you hear any grinding as well as check to ensure all the lug nuts are tight and someone has not tried to steal your tires yes definitely suspension
