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

When breaking, my break pedal begins to pulsate when stopping. Also, the steering wheel begins to shake when breaking.


Usually a sign one of the front brake rotors is out of round. It could also be something wrong with the abs but I doubt it.

Please any suggestion ? 98' V8 5.2 ; Won't turn after highway run ! Either left or right,cranky noise , shaking ,strong vibration from the front wheels.BUT; when is cooling down -after 30 min.


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!

Stering wheel shakes at 30 to 40 miles an hour


Put your spare tire on one side of the front. Drive it, if it does not help, replace the spare and then try removing the other front tire. Drive it and see if it helped.

The tire that caused the vibration probably threw a weight or has a broken belt. Have that tire checked and repaired, then have the Tire shop put the spare back in the trunk.

If it is not a tire problem check your tierod ends. They connect both front wheels and if there is a lot of play, you can get shake and wobble from the slack in the frontend.

Sometimes front Rotors can cause a shake when you hit the brakes. If the car shakes without pressing the brakes, then its the tires or frontend.

Shaking front wheel when braking. Mecury Sable 2001 front wheel drive


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.

Driver side wheel shakes often. I changed brakes and rotors and problem continues. What is the problem.


I would call this 1 of 3 possible problems.....

This first could be a bad or unbalanced tire. Sometimes the multiply ties we use on cars separate between layers, this causes an un-natural bulge that can not always be seen, but certainly can be felt while driving. This is called ply separation. An unbalanced tire, which could be caused by a wheel weight falling off, or a shift in weight that could be cause by something like an impact break or the ply separation, would also cause a wobble that varies at different speeds. The best way to check it out without a shop visit, is to take the wheel off and just inspect it, make sure everything is smooth and even.

Secondly, a wheel bearing could cause a wobble as well. The self test for this is to jack the car up, leave the tire on and wiggle it. It should feel tight all the way around and not move up to down, or side to side. A way to test this unit while driving, which is not always accurate 100% but will give you a clue as to where to look first is drive in an area free from other traffic, when it starts to wobble, turn to both the left and right without touching the break. If the wobble goes away it is likely the cause.

Thirdly the ball joint could also cause a slight wobble. To check this, I usually jack the car up, do the same wobble test as described above, then remove the tire and inspect the joint. A good joint will have absolutely no tears in the boots. It should also feel solid at you try to move the other components that surround them.

Good Luck, we are here if you need anything further.

Clunky noise sounds from front end on 98 ford expedtion 4 wheel drive not always there just had new tranfer case put in.Not able to tell when he does sometimes and lower speeds or just when acclerating....


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.
