Looking at what could cause the rear of the car to wiggle side to side when accelerating from 0 to 25 mph? the wheels do not look like they are wobbling when driving down the road! tire belts bad?


Tires...rear suspension...rear alignment - in that order. I had a car with a really bad rear alignment that hop sideways every time you went over a bump in the road.

1998 voyager front tires wobble back and forth when jacked up. Is it tie rod or ball bearing?


If it wobbles with your hands at 9 and 3, its a tie rod end.
If it wobbles with your hands at 12 and 6, its a wheel bearing.

The driver rear tire wables when driving


I assume that the wobble is side to side and not up and down. The most benign cause of wheel wobble is a bent tire rim; but since you've tried another wheel and still get the wobble, the cause could be a bent housing, bad bearing, a number of things. In any case, if you don't get it fixed, a castastrophic failure is likely to happen. The rear axle is semi-floating; the axle and wheel are held on only by the pressed-on bearing and a small circlip. See a mechanic ASAP.

Does a 2002 taurus have wheel barrings


Possibilities are:
  1. Bad wheel bearing
  2. Bad tie rod
  3. Bad ball joint
  4. Bad strut
  5. Loose lug nuts
Most cases it's a wheel bearing but since you're getting a loud noise too, it could very well be a bad ball joint or tie rod end.

When applying brakes - I get a wheel wobble, o.k. when driving normally no wheel wobble. had realignment done about 4 months ago. also when driving on rough or uneven road surface seems like my shock...


it could be the shocks but due to wheel wobble i would say its more to do with worn bushings on the suspension arms etc.... best way to check is to jack up each front corner of the car at a time and shake the wheel see if it has movement side to side or front to rear if so i would reccomend getting it looked at or replacing the bushings :) hoep this helps

Steering wheel wobbles when driving slowly and in a straight line


you need to have your tires checked for a slipped belt, also if you get a shake in the steering wheel when you apply the brake you need to have the brake rotors re-surfaced or replaced.

2001 hyundai santafe very wobbly wheel


If you've hit a pot hole hard then the wheel could simply be buckled. Remove the wheel and place it flat on the ground if it wobbles on the ground problem solved: buckled wheel!
