Why does steering wheel shimmy from 48 to 55 mph and also jumps up and down frequently?


The most common issue is tires and you said that it was speed balanced? How long ago? By whom? When tires are balanced there are weights that are clamped to the rim. If the weights are loose and fall off, the balance does no good. The speed is another issue, tires are balanced for a certain speed and until you reach that speed, it is usually not in balance. Lastly it could be brake rotors or a CV joint or bearing that is bad.

My steering wheel shimmies at 40 mph only


All you need is a wheel balance. Either that or you have some mud or ice stuck in a rim, or it could be a bent rim.

Steering vibration while driving


If your tires are not balanced or you have a warped rim this will do this, especially at certain speeds you will notice it more, I would have your rims balanced first, and keep in mind if a rim is not able to be balanced it is warped.

I have a problem with my sharan it shaks betwin 40and50 mph, can u tell what's the problem


Sounds like a wheel balance problem. Take your vehicle to a tire store, and have them balanced and rotated.

1999 Jeep-violent shaking of steering wheel when braking at 55 mph and then stops when speed lowers to say 40 mph. Only on highway, not streets. When first happened, installed new rotors and brakes, but...


1. out of balance tire because it sounds speed spacific.
2. worst of all! Loose lug nuts or possibly loose spindle nut. (you will need to lift the wheel off the ground to tell)
3. worn linkages i.e. ball joints, steering linkage, anything that would allow play in the front wheels.
