Safety inspected? Wheels would have been off, perhaps not on tight, be very cautious!! Check all wheel nuts & contact the guys who did inspection right a way.

Steering vibrates at any speed wheels have been balanced what could it be. when putin nuetral at at any speed the vibration stops .


Out of balance wheels, shifted belts on the tires, loose steering parts can cause a shimmy while driving. Also, if the rotors are warped and the pads are stuck on the slides it will give you a brake pulsation that can be felt constantly even when you're not on the brakes.

Ive got a 06 grand caravan that shimmies and pulls hard to the right. Any guesses as to what might be the cause. Broken axel?tie rod bushing ?


There are a number of different things that could cause that problem, a bad tire, a lower or upper control are bushing, a worn out inner or outer tire rod end l, a bad wheel bering. To figure out exactly where the problem is you need to visually and physically inspect each side of the suspension by having someone move the steering wheel back and forth while you observe both sides from underneath the front of the vehicle. From there you should be able to see what is moving when it shouldn't be or not moving when it should. Also inspect your brake rotors. You may simply need new rotors and brake pads.

Do Ball Joints have to be inspected? Replaced? How Often?


here is how to inspect, refer to general picture, using lever under wheel pull up on lever if movement is noticed at joint they need replacing, can feel movement if you leave your other hand on wheel at top. jack must be placed in under arm for one ball joint to be checked and then under crossmember for other. usually check when suspension problem/steering problem is noticable or bad tyre wear, looseness feel in steering(slop) when shimmy steering wheel one way and then the other.

If your tires were not properly balanced then it will cause that. Also, if your rotors are warped then icould cause this to happen. YOu would also notice it when braking if rotors are warped.

Since you can make it better by unloading the tire a little I would suspect a wheel bearing. You also may just have a bad ball joint. Also if the tires were just rotated and you developed the problem you may have a defective tire.
