Steering weehl vibrationn on toyota hzj78

My hzj 78 does sometimes very strange things. when road is some kind of uneven the steering starts shaking real bad and the front wheels are both flapping in some kind of resonance that I have to stop the car. Then I can go on again. It never does it on dirt roads only on bitumen rods and It nerver does it in 4WD hubs engaged. Some one told me that the tyrs are doing that, but I already rplaced them and it was good for a certain time but now, tyres running 15000 it starts again shaking. What is that? Suspension, shock absorbers. Can you plesase give me an idea! Thank you

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: 2006 Ford Ranger vibration on steering wheel and noise @ 110 Km/h

Check the idler arm and pittman arm, then the tie rod ends for ANY play. The pittman arm is the one on the steering gearbox that connects to the tie rod, and the idler arm is the one that connects from the tie rod to the frame. Replacing the parts is a pretty inexpensive and straightforward job, but you will need to have the wheels re-aligned afterwards.

SOURCE: Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.

Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.

Too much play in the steering wheel. What could be the problem ?


This is a worry for your safety - I think from your description that the ball joint on the steering rack end is coming undone, possibly with a split steering rack rubber boot as well.

Have it seen to ASAP, as this vital part holds your steering together.

When I drive and reach the speed of about 60 mph, the steering wheel shakes a little. Does the wheel bearing or struts need to be changed?


I would start by having the tires carefully inspected and balanced if needed. A tire that has a broken internal steel cord can develop a lump or wave in the tread face which will cause the steering wheel to shake as the vehicle speed increases. Usually a tire that is developing such a problem is very close to failing completely [flat or blow-out] so have them checked as soon as possible. An out of balance tire usually just causes a general vibration or shake but can cause bigger problems depending on how out of balance they might be. Worn tie rod ends or other suspension components can cause a similar shake so have those items checked at the same time. Worn struts usually won't cause the shake you are describing but can cause the car to handle quite poorly and bounce excessively on bumpy roads. Wheel bearings often [but not always] make a grumbling/growling kind of noise as they start to go bad but usually won't cause a shake. A good inspection should quickly pinpoint the cause of the problem

Going over bumps or bump roads, stearing shakes,pulls, at any speed fine after 15 min park


Please have a check at your steering rack and your shocks.

But I have a strong belief it could be your steering rack.
