Re: front end shakes and viberates,like tires wobbily
You should have it checked by a tecnician. Most of them will check it for free providing you have it repaire by them. There are numerous problems that can be present. example. Upper or lower ball joints, wheel alignment, control arms center link. This should be done in a shop so you have a warranty. Don't forget this problem is a safty issue for the driver and passengers. I hope this helps.

Ty, first off, do you feel the vibration in the steering wheel? Is it in the steering wheel & front end? I will assume that the tires were inspected and determined to be ok. Sometimes, the shop may have a rookie do the basic inspection and then have an experienced tech come in if there seems to be an issue. The problem with this is that the ford suspension needs to be "loaded" in order to properly inspect for loose components. That means that they would have to either jack the front suspension on an alignment rack from the control arms or use a jack stand under the control arm.. If the vibration is only in the front end and tires are good. It sounds like there may be an issue with a ball joint or control arm bushing. Something along those lines.. More info needed.
When does it shake? Low speed, off brake... Bad tires. High speed off brake... Balance tires. High speed on brakes... Rotors. Trucks and AWD can be transfer case, diff, ujoints, out of balance driveshaft and tires. Have your car lifted and walk around it, always check tires, ballpoints, tie rode ends
it sounds like the front tires need balancing.if you drive the truck slowly(creeping down the road at about 5mph)and lightly holding the steering wheel do you feel the steering wheel moving back and forth.this could indicate a bad belt in a tire where as a wheel imbalance won`t show up at this low of a speed,but a bad belt will.also have the front end checked for worn front end components and wheel bearings,this can cause a bad shake too.
Well the frist thing to do is have the front end checked it may have worn parts, like a tie rod end or a balljoint. another thing it may be is a bad tire ive seen a bad tire do this also, a tire with a bad belt would also cause this so check tires for out of round
The front end of the vehicle has several parts that cause the front end to shake. Have you had the front end checked for bad tie rod ends, That is the most common problem.Another thing when does it shake? If it shakes while applying the brakes it could be the rotors need to be turned or it could be both the tie rod ends or the rotors.
There are many things that can cause front end vibrations, I will give you a list and hopefully the information provided will allow you to narrow it down. Usaully front end shake is caused by a tire that either has a shifted belt in the tire or the tire weights could have falled off and the tire and wheel must be rebalanced, another reason for shake is if the shake occurs when applying the brakes it is a warped rotor and the brakes must be replace in the front end along with new rotor installed, the last thing that it could be is a loose or worn out front end part perhaps a tierod end. If i was you I would try rotating the tires from the front to the back and see if the shaking goes away if it does it is most likely a bad tire (shifted belt) or the tire needs to be rebalanced at a auto garage. after checking that first then jack up the front and grab the wheel and move it back and forth up the down to check for play or loosness, as I said if the shaking occurs while applying the brakes replace the brakes and rotors.
try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.
