Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

My Silverado front end wobbles at any speed, not affected braking

My 2004 Silverado 1500 has a front end wobble. With no brakes being applied. What are the possible causes? I'm thinking tire inflation or a front end alignment. This has been going on for a month or so. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thanks...

Todd

Couple of checks , mud in front rims will give you a wobble. Front tire cord seperation or loose wheel nuts. , Wore out tie rod end, front wheel bearing play, or a weight has fallen off the rim and it needs balancing. If it is vibrating your steering wheel, have the front end looked at right away.

When driving around at any speed on highway my car feels like gliding It feels like I'm going to lose control and sometimes when I brake coming down hill the front end shakes violently. then will stop


This is an indication of a strut issue. The shocks dampen the spring in the strut assembly. IF you have loose fastening components or bushings or a bad shock in the strut you can get a violent shudder when you apply brakes on a down hill direction.

ABS & brake Wobble in Cherokee front end


I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)

Jeep with lift kit installed shakes and shimmies when speed is over 55 mph especially when brakes are applied or hit a bump.


The notorious "Death Wobble". You need to go out and buy 2 stabilizer links for the front end. They look like glorifed shock absorbers. One end attachs to the frame and the other to the drag link. You need 2, don't bother trying to cheap out with 1. There's a reason why they call it "Death Wobble"

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.

My car front end wobbles when braking and at higher speed


did you have the front brake rotors machined, they are warped. either replace the brake rotors or have then machined, I prefer just replacing them as they are fairly cheap.
