1970 ford f250 shakes real bad when I let off the gas. Any ideas I'm stumped

it depends what shakes ? if it only dose it when your slowing right down without braking then it could be an engine mount. if your braking it could be many things from warped disks to track rod ends/ball joints/loose wheel bearings. try and trace the shake. front right-left/steering wheel/back right -left.checks to do are,jack car up and hold the top and bottom of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement/hold the sides of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement ( on all wheels ) grab engine and shake it while looking at both sides ( checking engine mounts ) shaking can be caused by a number of things even bad shockers. good luck

Car shakes badly

Front rotors are warped, you need to have them resurfaced, or get new ones and id suggest replacing the brake pads.

The front shakes when I step on the brakes. I have replaced the both rotors and brake pads and the problem still exist. What can I do next to resolve the problem? Thanks for your help

sounds like your brake caliper . but it might be your tires out of balance. to check caliper when you hit brakes it will pull to the left or right badly

When i drive down the street my steering wheel shakes very bad to the left and the right, then the whole car shakes what can it be? what will make my truck shake like that and what can i do?

Tires could be out of balance. If it is 4 wheel drive you might check to ensure you are not partially engaged or have other mechanical problem. Also try hitting the brakes when it statrs to shake and see if it stops. I would also check the wheel bearings.

My car shakes and jerks to the right. I think i need an alignment. Could bald tires make a car shake and ****?

No, bald tyres can only make the car skid to their side not shake or **** it. It could be brake adjustment gone out too.

1998 Camry steering wheel shakes when braking and over 50mph

if you hit the brakes and it shakes its your rotors, they're probably warped. Having them turned (polished) won't fix it. You'll have to replace them. As for the shaking at over 50, if you're not touching the brakes, you'll probably just need to have your tires balanced. Maybe jack up you car an check the ball joints and tie rod ends (keep the tire on and see if there is play, either up and down (ball joints) and left and right (tie rods)). Hope this helps.

Car Shakes

Certainly sounds like a partially, or seized caliper hanging up, which has warped rotor. What exactly did they replace at brake job, do you know? Either way they need to be rechecked.
