    wheel bearing, tie rod are new. All the wheel are all the same trademark and size and just 24 hours new.

    It feels like power steering gear box needs some kind of adjustment.

    How about the pitman arm and the idler arm? Is there slop in the gear box? Jack the front of the vehicle up with both front tires off the ground with the steering wheel locked in position. Then have someone try to force tire to turn right and left. if it wiggles quite a bit left and right look at the pitman arm and the idler arm to see if they are the problem and also look to see how much the gear box shaft is moving when you perform the test. There has to be a part that was missed when they did the front end work

    you might want to get a second opinion on the repairs for the front. It sounds to me that you either have a bad wheel bearing or balljoint or even tye rod. My guess wheel bearing though. Is the tires the same or are they mismatched?

When driveing it will wonderover the road


It is going to need a tire balance, rotation and an alignment. You may not be able to do the alignment if the ball joints and tie rods need to be replaced.

The rear tires are not lined up stright


Hello, If this is a front wheel drive vehicle, the rear wheels may be adjustable and need alignment. You would ask for a 4 wheel alignment at a Repair facility. You need the same tools and alignment rack that normally handles front-end alignment.

Next, there is also a suspension system that allows the rear wheels to tip the wheels in order to stabilize the added weight you may be carrying. Sometimes when you lift the rear wheels off the ground it takes several miles of driving before the suspension recovers and makes the wheel straight again.

Sometimes you can get free estimates for Repair work on alignment work. You need to take it in because even if you replace parts that are worn, you should get a new alignment.

My front tire on my BMW shakes so bad when I'm


many causes.

loose lug nuts
wheel out of balance; weight fell off
bent wheel
incorrect tire pressure; over pressure can damage the tire
faulty tire;out of round, tread separation, etc
loose wheel bearing
worn shock absorber
worn steering / suspension component; bushing, tie rod end, ball joint, etc
alignment issue

You can rotate the tires, front to back to see if the problem follows the wheels or is a front end only problem.

I have a 1999 blazer zr2 with the 4.3 vortec OK now hears the problem to day when i was driveing in the snow i had to use the 4wd so i stopped and hit the 4wd button and it clicked and sounded like it...


Sound crazy, but alot recommendations say thet when you pass from Hi to Lo must insure that you have foot on the brake pedal.

Loss of vacuum engages the front hubs; other for no 4 wheel drive and no indicator light. Go home pulled all the fuses that had to do with the 4 wheel drive system, put them back in and 4 wheel seems to work fine now. And no there were no blown fuses.

I recently had same case and it was a bad electric motor on the transfer case (31000 miles). The 4x4 light wouldn't even light up or engage so I would lean towards it being something different on your end.
Also, could be the actuator pin or w/e the little plastic piece is that engages the 4LO might be broke, or maybe a couple of other things.

Keep us updated.

I have a 2005 trail blazer and my truck shakes when I get over 60


Could be many many things, from an alignment, to tire balancing to suspension or driveline problems. If you're feeling it shake in the steering wheel while driving, that eleminates driveline problems and you can focus on the other issues.

Steering wheel pulls when turning on a curve and my tires are wearing down because of this


check the air pressure and make sure all tires have the same psi in them. If they do, take it in for a front end alignment or a 4 wheel alignment.

When i have my 4 wheel drive engaged making turns


If you are in 4WD, and not on a slippery surface, the tires may be having an effect called "scrubbing" where the tire on the outside of the turn is not rotating at the same rpms as the tire on the inside of the curve. I have noticed this on my jeep wrangler in 4wd.

Using 4wd on dry or non-slippery surfaces can cause this problem, and also will cause excessive tire wear.

Try the same manuever on a gravel road or a ice patch (it's been in 90s here in Texas, so good luck on that one) and see if it is improved.

Also, would probably expect a little more effort to steer when in 4wd because the universal joints or CV joints are not in perfect alignment during a turn.
