SOURCE: shaking/vibration in front end & steering wheel

Nor sure about the 2001 model, but on the 97 model, the track bar bolts to the frame on the driver's side. The bolts work loose. Dont merely look at it, go ahead and tighten them. There are two bolts facing upward, at the end lf the track bar. Then there are 3 nuts behind the driver's side front wheel that need to be tight. You dont have to take the wheel off so see them. I tightened all of mine and the death wobble nearly went away ....( 90%)....then I replaced the steering stabilizer ( damper). Hope your 2001 is just as easy !

SOURCE: Why is my steering wheel shaking when I drive over

If the rate of the shaking increases or decreases with your speed, it could be your wheel balance or a problem with a tire.

How to adjust toe on 2000 lincoln continental


adjust the tie rod ends to achieve toe-in/out adjustment. Measure across the wheels at the front of the steering tyre and then measure across the tyre at the rear of the steering tyre ( same height) and see what the difference is. Adjust the tie rod ends until the front measurement is smaller than the rear by about 1/8 inch . Lock up the lock nuts on the tie rod ends.

My morris steering wheel shakes when i'm driving it happens on and off at varios speeds over 30ks but disappears when turning to the left , is this caused by my wheel alignment, shocks or something...


Hi sounds like a steering tie rod is worn plus an out of balance wheel get a wheel alignment check and DYNAMIC balance if the tie rod end is worn it can fall off completely leaving you with no steering control. If have a tie rod problem you may also have King pin wear.
Very dangerous to keep driving In my opinion get it checked by a proper steering service centre not a tyre fitter.

Front end shakes,tie rod and upper ball joints have been replaced


Very little info for a fix. Tie rod and upper ball joints do not make a front end shake. Lower ball joints wear out before the uppers do.
Front end shakes at what speed, if you have a broken belt in one of your front tires you will notice it more at low speeds. Mud or snow stuck in wheel will make them vibrate at speed. Lug nuts tight since front end work? You need to give more info. Switch front tires with back tires. If shake is in steering wheel it more than likely is front end but if you feel it in your seat it is more than likely in the rear of the car.

Why is my car shaking if it reaches 100 kph?


Check tyre balance (see a tyre dealer)
also get check wheel alignment, front wheel bearing adjustment and that the tyres haven't got tread separation.
Then if not any of those show a problem, check tie rods and steering rack ends.

2000 HZJ79 landcruiser ute diesil frontend shakes at 80 km not wheel balance or damper what could it be ciol spring front end


First off, steering wobble usually starts threw front hubs so ya best is first jack the front up so wheels are off the ground, hold the tyre top and bottoms an try to push it in and out, if there is play there than you may need to
Simply replace wheel bearings etc or in my case just repack and set em an Make sure you do the inner bit 28mm nuts up firm,

Second option is get a high quality steering damper which also helps heaps when 4x4 ing,

Third option could very well be play on the tirod ends an this can be checked by havin te wheels off te ground as steering lock off and just gentler trying to twist the wheel side to side an if there is play than u will know that the slak is coming threw the rod ends before friction hits the steerin arms hence causing vibrations

Torque specs. for replacing tie rod end on dodge stratus, replacement rod came with slotted nut and cotter pin


Hello
Welcome!
The torque spec for the tyrod ends are 45 foot pounds.

• Unlock the steering wheel before jacking up the vehicle. This allows the Steering linkage to be moved for the best possible access to the ends' fasteners by grabbing one of the axle hubs
• Secure the vehicle on jackstands before removing the wheels.
• Buy name-brand tie-rod ends. Saving a few dollars on cheaply made parts isn't worth the risk.
• Mark the tie-rod ends' positions on their threaded adjusters before removing the old ends. This way, the new ends can be screwed in to approximately the same position as the old ones to get wheel allimint in the ballpark.
• Have the vehicle professionally aligned afterward, especially if the steering wheel isn't centered or the vehicle pulls one direction when attempting to drive straight.

Signs your haveing probloms with the tyrod ends

• Front-end shimmy, shake or vibration.
• Abnormal front-end noise.
• Hard steering.
•steering wheel doesn't return to center properly.
• Vehicle wanders.
• Steering feels unstable, loose or has excessive play.

2006 Pontiac G6 wheel vibration


Tie rod ends do not have bushings (ball and socket like your hip). If vibration begins at 50-55 but goes away at slightly higher speed, it could be caused by wheel balance. Once balance has been checked jack up each front wheel and shake them back and forth and check for any loose steering components. If reasonably tight, My guess is that you have a bad hub bearing. If you don't know how to change them, get a manual to guide you (chiltons or haynes are OK for this). Pretty much it is a bolt out bolt in procedure and not terribly difficult except that sometimes the hub is rusted in and is a bear to get out. Need any help with that, just ask.
Note...many bad hub bearings show no obvious defects...but can create a strong vibration...just determine which side is noisy and change it. Scrapyard parts are inexpensive and generally fairly reliable as replacements.
