1997 Mazda 626 while turning I'm getting a vibration ( like a thumping sound) in the front end. I also pick up a heavy vibration starting about 55-60 . I have replaced the left cv shaft, wheel bearing and...


no not typically. Have you checked out the tires closely for any signs of tread separation on the tires? That could be associated with the vibration above 55.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I leave in the morning their is a vibration in the front tires that lasts about 10-20 seconds.It feels like the tires are skipping


If it's a vibration, it might be a brake pad staying in contact with the disk. Normally the pads push away when the car starts moving. (A normal condition called "runout") Try stopping your Jeep tonite by using only rear brakes. (hand brake) Don't step on the brake pedal at all. Then see if it does it in the morning. Don't step on the brake pedal in the morning till the test 20 sec's is over.

If the problem is a thump thump sound it's probably a tire flat spot from setting. Have the tires just been replaced? Could be a softer tirs material.

I have a 1996 dodge ram 3500 4x4 with a v10 as soon as u get up around 20 or so mph the steering will start shaking badly


This sounds like a separated tire , rub your hand
around the complete surface of both front tires ,
looking for an outward bulge .
I believe this is the problem.
A tire shop can put it on the rack and spin it .
It should stand out .
Most vibrations under 40 mph are directly related to
the tire , above that is tire balance.

Front end vibration at 40 mph and rubbing sound


Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.

Shakes at 60 mphexplorer xlt


Tires would be the 1st place to check. If you seem to feel it more in your legs then it is likely the front, if felt more in seat bottom then could be a rear tire. Depending on how severe the vibration is there could be a tire developing a tread seperation and should be checked right away. A simple balance of the tire and wheel assemblies may be all that required also but when on a balancer they should be able to tell if the tire has a more severe problem.
Driveline components could cause vibrations also however if the above sounds like it fits then check that 1st.

At what speed do you feel the shake and does it only happen when you apply the brakes?
