You seem to have more than one problem, first of all the balding tire you have a negative camber problem that can be adjusted by getting a wheel alignment done. The shaking problem while applying brake could mean that you have bad/warped front rotors. It can also mean bad Tie rods. Lastly it can mean that the front tires needs to be high speed balanced. Good Luck

1994 chevy silverado front shakes when brake is applied


If you put new rotors you need new brakes as well the other thing to check is the inner and outer tie rods to do that get the front tires off the ground grab the front and back of the tire on the tread have someone look at the inner and outer tie rods as you move the tire back and forth if the tie rod does not move it is wore out you can also look at the sway bar pins and make sure that they are not broken

FRT END SHAKES AT ALL SPEEDS


If steering wheel shakes bad tire on front. If whole car shakes bad tire on rear. Or tires could be out of balance. If steering wheel shakes when brakes applied, front rotors are warped.

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced


You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

Fornt end shakes when going down the road, gets worse whrn the brakes are applied


If the steering wheel shakes while applying the brakes, you have warped brake rotors, and they need to be replaced. A shake all of the time may also be another issue, as in tires out of round, out of balance, or bad tie rod ends.

When i drive it it shakes really bad it has new tires and have hade them balensed severl times


The front end of the vehicle has several parts that cause the front end to shake. Have you had the front end checked for bad tie rod ends, That is the most common problem.Another thing when does it shake? If it shakes while applying the brakes it could be the rotors need to be turned or it could be both the tie rod ends or the rotors.

Should there be a snap ring holding rotors in place on a 1999 dodge stratus?I get front end shaking at certain speeds.


Have the front end checked by a mechanic. The problem could be wheel balancing, front end alignment, broken tire belt or a number of related things. The rotors are held in place by the wheel lug nuts. Good luck!

Wheel shaking?


There are many things that can cause front end vibrations, I will give you a list and hopefully the information provided will allow you to narrow it down. Usaully front end shake is caused by a tire that either has a shifted belt in the tire or the tire weights could have falled off and the tire and wheel must be rebalanced, another reason for shake is if the shake occurs when applying the brakes it is a warped rotor and the brakes must be replace in the front end along with new rotor installed, the last thing that it could be is a loose or worn out front end part perhaps a tierod end. If i was you I would try rotating the tires from the front to the back and see if the shaking goes away if it does it is most likely a bad tire (shifted belt) or the tire needs to be rebalanced at a auto garage. after checking that first then jack up the front and grab the wheel and move it back and forth up the down to check for play or loosness, as I said if the shaking occurs while applying the brakes replace the brakes and rotors.

Replaced left front caliper and both front rotors. front of car shakes when I apply the brakes but stops when I push harder. Shakes again if I have to slam on the brakes


you may need to bleed the brakes and clean the rotors of any brake fluid. usually tires get bad if u had this problem before. i mean rotate the tires see if this stops the shaking.
