great danger there. dont go fast.
can be tires out of balance (tire weighs feel off)
or wheel falling off (ever check the lugs)
tire bad. (bulged, delaminations , man killer tires, like Firestones)
tire rods balls, ready to fall off (more man killers)
ball joint ,ready to fail. and far far worse...
why not get the car serviced, have them check it out before.... bad happens.
noise and vibration or shaking on any machine means , doom is coming. in most cases,.
Recently ballanced ? If they are steal rims they could be one bent if you have your tires rotated and its not as bad then thats it if it shakes at high speeds like freeway speeds then your car may need alignment and all the joints in the front end replaced along with the wheel bearings too
A shop didnt find anything? You have a suspension problem Lets start at the tires is there any mud or crude that affect the balance of your tire? What about wheel bearing is there side to side movement even with the rear,How about the upper ball joint and lower ball joint . a warp drive axle can cause this . If you are certain of there inspection with the suspension the problem is the torque convertor. If that stays lock up whoa you will be shaking like big time
Your problem could be a few things: 1) your tires are out of balance, 2) your front end is worn out, 3) your wheel bearings are worn out. Try having the tires checked at a tire shop for out of balance, if they are good, then unfortunately you will have to take it to an alignment shop and they can tell you all that is worn out.
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.
What you have is called death wobble. Generally it is caused by one or several loose components in the steering. You need to have all mounts including where steering box is attached to the chassis checked. Often the problem is caused by either bad ball joints or track bar ends or mounts. Wheel stud torque is also important. if any brake, tire, or other front end work has recently been done, this may be the cause. One item often suggested by shops is the steering stabilizer. It is often damaged by the shaking but if replaced will not cure the problem and will be damaged again. If everything in the front end is carefully checked and verified as good, then as a last resort, have some additional positive caster added to the front end alignment. That often helps.
