1996 gmc grinds and shakes when turning sharp

Hello i just recently got a 96 gmc sierra ext cab 2wd truck and i noticed when i turn the wheel sharp to back up or turn while moving it sounds likes something is grinding and the steering wheel shakes, plus when i drive i get a bad vibration that gets worse as i speed up. At first i thought the front driver side tire was rubbing so i changed that and had all for tires re balanced and that didn't seem to solve the problem. What else could it be?

SOURCE: S430 Mercedes - Front end shaking at 55+

It sounds like you have either a broken steel belt in your tire or a worn out idler arm in your steering assembly. Other causes may be a bent wheel, a flat spot on the tire or worst case your brake rotor / wheel hub may be loose. If the rotor / wheel hub is loose you may have severly damaged wheel bearings. Good luck...

I have a 96 GMC Sierra Z71 and it shakes on and off like your going over multiple speed humps. What can cause this?


It could be several different things. If it does it only when applying the brakes I would say that your brakes rotors and drums need to be turned on a brake lathe. Other things to check are the tires either being out of balance or damaged. You may have a bent or damaged wheel. Check your front CV joints and axles. Check front wheel bearings. Check for slack in your pitman and idler arms. Check the ujoints and carrier bearing on your rear driveline.

Yes any TBI motor will work, You do have to switch your sensors, possibly motor mounts and balancer from the old motor. all other items should transfer.

Untill recently GM didn't change much of anything as far as bolt paterns You could bolt up a 350 from 20 years ago to your transmission and motor mounts. But that is not really what your wanting to do. The question is do you have a "vortec" or is it TBI. The vortec motor says vortec all over it (they were pretty proud of it I guess) The earlier TBI motor, at first glace look just like the old carburetor versions until you take of the air cleaner and find a throttle body instead of a carburetor. The two are not interchangeable as to the electronics, they are way diffract.

Front wheel shakes when turning sometime on my 01 gmc sierra


Give a check on your ball joints. If you jack up the truck where the front wheels are off the ground, put your hands on either side of the tire and try to move it, if it moves up/down, your ball joints are bad, if it moves side/side, your tie rod ends are bad.
