1992 Accord - Car shimmy when braking

Not all the time, once every few days, when I apply the brakes I will get a shimmy where whole car will shake as I apply the brakes. This is not a wheel balance problem. Does this car have a steering stabilizer

My 2004 cadillac deville is shaking in a low idle why is that


Does it occur when you apply the brakes? A warped rotor will cause a shake or shutter (primarily felt in the steering wheel and brake pedal) when the brake are applied. Most shops no longer resurface brake rotors any longer because of the reduced prices for a new replacement rotor, but resurfacing a rotor will bring the rotor true (even no wobble) and take away any brake shimmy or shaking.

I have a problem with disc brakes, 5-6days to destroy them and the car shakes ... why?


car shakes which is called shimmy shake,if brake pads been replaced wheels still shimmy, you have worn brake rotors with low and high spots,you could have bad wheel bearing, you have worn out tie rod ends and worn out ball joints,you could have tire out of balance,also you could need front end alignment.many things will cause wheels to do the shimmy shake.

Alot of play in right tierod and bad shimmy when brakes are applied


tierod could cause shake w/braking.replace tierod and do alignment, if it still shakes when braking then brake rotors are warpped.you machine rotors depending on thickness of rotor or how far off they are,if rotors are unturnable then replace.

Front brake shimmy


I would try replacing the rotors altogether.If after resurfacing them your getting .010 runout on them in a few days, those rotors are getting soft.
Also, check the rotor mating surfaces, ie, where the rotor touches the hub when installed, and make sure it is clean and smooth. Any rust or brake dust buildup on the hub will prevent the rotor from sitting flush to the hub. I would also recommend replacing the brake pads, if you do the rotors, as the pads could have worn unevenly due to the rotors being warped.

Shake and shimmey


From what you say you are experiencing, the bush wear should be quite noticeable on inspection.
Possibly too.... the problem may also be the brake discs, giving you a judder ?
Good Luck !

I have a shimmy in mySteering wheel not all the time it comes on randomly.


In absence of more information, this is usually an symptom of warped brake rotors. A rotor can build up enough heat in a hard stop to be bendable especially with the high hydrolic pressure a brake pad can bring to bear. Simply, If you keep the brake pedal depressed hard after a hard/long stop it can warp the rotor. (NOTE: at a hard stop, as soon as possible let the car creep forward a few inches at a time so the brake pad won't be on any one spot too long, plus keep light brake pressure --only enough to keep the car from rolling). The warped rotor causes the brake pad and caliper to float too far from the rotor and you won't feel the shimmy until you apply brakes. Under brake pedal pressure each time the wheel rotates under brake pressure the rotor and caliper will rapidly vibrate a few millimeters to each side giving the sensation of a shimmy in the sterring wheel. Most of the time this can be corrected by having the rotors resurfaced( aka Turned)

Out of balance or out of round tires can also cause a shimmy but should occur at a given speed range. Warpped rotor shimmy occurs during deceleration.
