Sometimes the front two wheel shaking strongly when i drive normaly without break and when i turn the steering right or lift the shaking go .
before in my jeep grand cherokee 1996 the same problem was happen . the reason was the steering stabilizer ( it's about an arm down the front to control the balance between the two front wheel ) need to change .
but i didn't know what need to change in my pathfinder 1998 .
thank you sooooo much if you help me
I have a 1994 explorer that did the same thing and what I had to do is change the radius arm bushings as well as ball joints and tie rod ends - this seemed to fix it, however yours may be a little different but that is where I would start

some times you will get a bouncing in wheel ,nose dive in front end when stopping or hard breaking, did you try jacking up car so wheel is just off ground ,put a bar under tire and lift up observe wheel movement ,then do other wheels , if it is a strut the wheel will move up and down freely , look for fluid leaking around strut body ,5000 miles is not much of a factor things do break.the other is get the front end off the ground both wheels,SAFELY !!!!!! WITH THE CAR SHUT OFF WHEELS BLOCKED, have one person turn wheel while you observe it , look for anything wrong grab the wheel and try to move left to right (a small ) motion observe what happens ,is there wiggle ? with out moving steering wheel. if not sure of any of these ,PLEASE take it to a mechanic .hope this helps good luck.

I suggest that you check your front CV joints. It is common for the boots to tear, allowing the grease to leak out. Lack of lubrication, dirt and moisture destroys the joint. You can purchase a remanufactured shaft ready to install at some part stores. I have a '93 Grand Cherokee with 220,000 miles, and over its life, I have replaced both sides twice. Good luck!
If the front wheel shakes only when you apply the brakes, the most likely cause is a warped brake rotor. The rotor can be "turned" to make it flat and true again, but it will most likely warp again since it will be thinner and it gets hot when you apply the brakes. I normaly replace them and they are about $35.00.
Fords are known for having Ball joint issues. they can cause noise if they are extremely loose. Sway bar links also can break causing a clunking too. I'd take it to a shop and have them do a front end shake down. 1/2 hour labor rate.
if your tires are ballanced then you need tie rod ends or ball joints jack up one wheel and **** tire left and right and see where the play is coming from even if you can replace the worn parts you will still have to get a front end allignment
