I hit a bump in the road and now the truck pulls real bad to the right and the steering wheel shakes real bad at low speed and when I hit the brakes? 2000 gmc sonoma


check your wheel is on nice and tight. check that the yore has no bulges or damage to all sides.
If everything appears okay take it to a suspension/steering specialist for a look ....sounds like you may have suffered suspension damage.
Who is responsible for the maintenance of that road? I would consider contacting them for an inquiry about possible compensation for the cost of repair, they always fix the road pretty quickly after such inquiries!!!!!
Taking a photo of the offending bump might be advisable

When you drive 45 mph and above the front end shakes real bad


very good chance you will need tie rod ends, is there squeaking during turns? (ball joints) hit a bump at higher speeds and the car sways left and right? any other symptoms?

The steering seems to wonder in low speeds especially when you hit a bump or the middle white line


Your front end alignment is out. It could be something as simple as a toe setting that needs adjusting. It could also be caused by worn or damaged front suspension parts. And, you can't rule out low tire pressure. One extremely low tire,esspecially if it is a rear tire will cause the car to wander. If the steering is pulling to the right or left, it could have a bad radial tire. If a radial tire goes bad, it loses it's grip, causing the car to pull toward the good tire. Unless it's on the rear, in which case you would not feel it pulling, rather it would be more like the rear was slipping or "fish-tailiang". If the problem came on suddenly, and you haven't hit any curbs or huge potholes, I would think it is a low tire. If you don't find a low tire, then you need to get to a front end alignment shop. Make sure they inspect the suspension for worn or damaged parts.

I have a 1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I get vibration in the front suspension while driving at 60 MPH or hit a bump in the road. I need to slow down to stop the vibration of shaking. Has anyone had this...


you are getting an oscillation .you need to put the front tires on the back and try it again as it could be bad tires.
if it is still the same,put the vehicle on a hoist and check the tire/rim play side to side and up and down.
turn the wheel and check for bearing noise.
common things are wheel balancing,tires,tie rod ends,worn axles and bearings.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

95 ef ford sedan suspension problem


What was said about the wear of the front end part when the alignment was given? I could be wrong but, I would say, Not likely for the tie rod ends and definately not the shocks for knocking sounds.. It sounds more like bad ball joints poping, although the idler arm and tye rod ends could be worn also .

I hit a bump on the right front side and it makes a roaring type noise and shimmies a bit .. can feel it under my left foot. also at times it will make that soud when i make a right hand turn... it is ...


Sounds like your left front wheel bearing is going bad. When you make a right turn, or compress the right front suspension over a bump, it forces the car to roll to the left. This loads the suspension on the left side, which will exaggerate a wheel bearing problem. Are you hearing the noise at all when travelling on the highway in a straight line? If so, it'd be either a grinding sound or a hollow humming noise. If you aren't, it may be that the bearing is just starting to go bad.

A quick test to see if the bearing is bad is to jack the car up at that corner, grab the wheel at the top and bottom, and shake it hard - if there is any movement or looseness, your bearing is shot. If there is none, it doesn't mean the bearing is fine, but it could be that it's just starting to go bad (which would be why you only hear it in turns and bumps, but not straight-line yet).
