Your rotor either need to be turned or replaced.also have your brake pads checked.

When going down a mountain and hitting the brakes to slow down, the steering wheel shakes back and forth. I had the front end aligned, wheels balanced, and new front tires.


Sounds like warped rotors, If you hit a large puddle of water with hot rotors this
can happen or if you use excessive brake. Best to have the rotors turned and new
pads installed. (I use organic pads to reduce rotor wear but many shops do not
like to use them) The organic pads are softer and wear out sooner but you really want
to have the brake system serviced annually under ideal circumstances.
Hope this is useful.

I have a 1994 chevey exstended cab 4 wheel drive it has a vibration in front it seems kije uts there when i accelerate then it kinda goes away but then when i brake and slow down it vibrates worst


sounds like you have a warpped brake rotor, bad ball joint, or a bad tire. I would recommed taking the truck to a tire shop and have them shake down the front end that will tell you if its a tire or ball joint

When i drive it it shakes really bad it has new tires and have hade them balensed severl times


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.

My express van shakes vigorously at about 45 to 50 mph. I have to slam on the brakes and slow down for it to stop, my friend has one that does the same thing..


I highly recommend a front end alignment, and tire balancing. While it's being checked out, they can tell you if the front shock/struts are worn as well.
Alignment is most likely the culprit..

Exact same thing happened to me. On my 03 taurus and 03 Windstar. It ended up be worn inner tie rod ends. Would reccommend an inspection of bushings, tie rods etc.

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...

Front end shakes when slowing down brakes and rotors are good. When not pushing brake it rides fine.


did you check your brake rotor for warpage. even a .010 warp on the rotor will be felt in the steering when aplying the brakes. use a dial indicator to check the warping

Shaking while braking at speeds 40 mph +


Anti-lock brakes mean the car shakes when the brake is applied. Try pumping the brakes.
