Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy
I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy 4x4 which now has a LOUD vibration from the front end and it does not lessen up at any speed. I can feel it in the steering as well as from the floor boards. When I go into a slight right curve, it seems to lessen up a bit, but when it's a sharper curve, I get a more pronounced vibration. I've checked the pressure in the tires and although once I got the tires to the right pressure, it did lessen it, but not much. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
A couple things here. 1.) You either have a tire out of balance. 2.) You need an alignment 3.) You have a tie rod getting ready to go. You can check the tie rod by jacking up one side and if you can wiggle the tire back and forth you have a bad inner tie rod. If you can wiggle the tire (hands at 12 and 6) and wiggle the tire in and out you have bad ball joints. The first two you will need to take it in to a shop and have them check your tires and alignment. Also you may want to have the shop check your wheel bearings. I hope this gives you some direction. Thanks for using FixYa!
