Wobble front end

Hey everyone

There seems to be ALOT of wobble in the front end of the vehicle, and it's to the point where I could wobble right out of the seat. It's hard to keep the vehicle in line as it veers to the right or left.

Can you help..?

Jack one tire up at a time, from the control arm, so the tire is not dangling ro the spring does not extend, then grab the tire with one hand on top and one on the bottom, and wiggle it, if it moves you have a bad ball joint, then grab it with one hand on each side and move it back and forth if it moves you have a bad tie rod end.

91 accord lx front wheels srem to wobble when hitting bumps in thr road


A loose front end is no joke. Ignoring the problem can cause premature / uneven tire wear and other costly repairs or accident due to catastrophic failure when least expected.

Typically, front end pivoting points used for steering - called "ball joints" - wear out providing similar sensations as you describe. This is not really a DIY type of repair - and should be brought to a trusted mechanic for a proper diagnosis and repair.

What causes a wobble in the front end


Could be front end alignment , or tie rod ends....need to just have it driven and diagnosed by garage( preferably GMC ) there is a noise that comes from steering column that is sometimes mistaken to be associated with wobble....altogether a different problem....just pay to have vehicle put on lift and looked at. Should only charge small fee to diagnosis. Good luck, let us know!

Steering wheel wobbles when driving slowly and in a straight line


you need to have your tires checked for a slipped belt, also if you get a shake in the steering wheel when you apply the brake you need to have the brake rotors re-surfaced or replaced.

I had the same problem; I had to replace the steering stabilizer and the track bar. There is a technician's service bulletin out about this problem; happens alot with Jeeps. Use aftermarket parts. It's called the "Death Wobble" and you can lose control of the vehicle very easily.

When a steering stabilizer goes bad, it will produce the exact wobble you have described. The one where you NEED to slow down to stop it, and then its fine. Its called "Death Wobble" in the car/truck enthusiast world.

Have you checked that? Typically called a steering stabilizer / steering dampener.

Good luck!

97 CRV wobble on exceleration in front end


Check for: bent rim, out of round tire, bent CV axle
Check by jacking up front end and lowering lower control arms onto two jack stands. Then start vehicle and carefully shift into drive. Look closely at the front tires and axles while rotating for any visible wobble.

Front end wobble


An easily overlooked problem that can have these symptoms is low tire pressure. Examine your tire for excessive wear or a flat spot. Check your tire pressures. If all this seems fine, rotate your tires to see if that helps the problem. If so, replace the suspect tire.

2000 Hyundai Sonata front end wobbles.


put the front tires on the back and see if it changes.
alot of times,if the suspension is defective it wears the tires uneven ,out of round.
check and make sure the wheel nuts are tight and torqued properly.
alot of techs use just the gun,and not a torque stick and overtighten the wheel nuts.

Possible wheel bearing failure, ball joint failure or tie rod end failure. Does the wobble seem to be when tire is moved toward center of vehicle on top and bottom or front and back??
