2000 Pontiac Sunfire that Shakes Violently around 45-50 MPH

I drive a 2000 sunfire and around 45-50 mph the whole car starts to shake violently.. I feel like its in the front tires but my g/f seems to think its in the rear tires.. This problem just started yesterday, any Ideas? Also, I think there is a shock on the rear passenger side that needs to be replaced could that be the problem?

Check the ball joints and cv axles this could cause the car to shake violently and most tire stores will check them for you for free.

2000 expedition shakes violently when hitting the right kind of bump in the road at 55-80 mph everything in the front end is good what could this be ?


Jeeps have this problem a lot, they call it the death wobble! On the ford it depends on if you have a 2 or 4 wheel drive vehicle, 2 wheel drive have your alignment checked, I've been fooled by them, and if it's a 4x4 you most likely have a bad steering stabilizer shock..

It sounds like one of your rotors may be warped. Depending on the condition of the rotors, you can have them machined true again. If they are too worn/bad, they'd need replaced.
