This is a temporary fix for vehicles with drum brakes only. jack the vehicle on the side that has "frozen". place a jack stand under a sturdy part near area to be worked on. Remove lugnuts and wheel and set aside. find a 20oz ball peen hammer and give the side of the drum a few whacks. that may have loosened the drum from the shoes enough to turn the axle. This is only to get you to a service station or in your garage to do a more thorough inspection. Any more ?s feel free to ask. Brad

Rear Tires: Balding


if it has independent rear suspension then have the suspension rubbers checked and replace if necessary. Next for all wheel alignments it is essential that the rear end is aligned first to stop this tyre wear before the front wheels are aligned . IF you have leaf springs at the rear check for axle alignment and broken centre bolts or worn rubbers at the centre bolt mounts.

Vibration at high speeds in stering wheel comes and goes


Could be a tire or wheel problem even tho you have new tires.
If the tires were balanced on a machine, the machine spins the wheels at around 30 mph. That is good enough for most cars and most normal speeds.
You could move the front tires to the rear and see if the vibration moves to the seats.

Vibration in rear of driveline subaru liberty wgn 91


You didn't say anything about tires and wheels, have you rotated the tires to see if the problem moves to the front of the car ?
If the car is 20+ years old, the mounts for the transaxle could be worn enough to cause a vibration. And one of the axles/driveshaft could be bent.

I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler with uneven front tire wear. I have had them about 2-years. Moving front to back along the interior lugs of Goodyear Wrangler MTS tires there are lugs that are more worn than...


You didn't mention if you ever rotated the tires. I suggest you get them re-balanced and put the fronts on the rear. I recommend putting them front to back without crossing them. There's been an argument about that for many years and I still believe that crossing will cause belts to shift inside the tire and that can cause it to fail if you reverse the rolling rotation, especially if no rotation has been done for a long time. (rotate about once a year) It may also be a good idea to replace your front shock absorbers. Unless you live somewhere it gets very hot, I'd also run your tire pressure at 35psi. If you normally run it lower, it may feel a bit hard at first but it's easy to get used to and the tires will last longer.

I have a 1993 Volvo I purchased new almost 17


Could be tire noise, could be rear wheel bearing, differential (if rear wheel driven), or could be something associated with the brake.

Try swapping the tire with another tire. If the noise moves with the tire, it's the tire. If it stays, it's brakes (unlikely for the noise you mention), rear wheel bearing, or rear differential (lack of oil). Will probably need to have a mechanic to identify and repair.
