Steering wheel and tire issue


Have a front end suspension check done to eliminate any worm ball joints -shockies- worn suspension rubbers-- steering problems. If ok have a wheel alignment done and have the rear end aligned first as it affects the front alignment. The violent wobble is castor wobble and indicates negative castor possible from sagging suspension springs. The camber is out at that results in the car following every dip in the road. The camber has to work in conjunction with the toe-in measurement and if the 2 are not correct then you will have problems.

I would get a second opinion. Apparently the tire guy may have got the alignment right, but didn't check for loose suspension or steering parts that will cause your problem. Have your inner and outer tie rods checked for wear and looseness. Also the suspension's ball joints.

As im pressing on the break from going about 45 mph the steering wheel shake as do the whole car could it need an allignment


that seems like you have a warpped rotor. If you need an alignment your car will veer to one side of the road or the other when you let go of the steering wheel at those speeds. Another way to test your front brakes for braking problems is to let loose of the steering wheel at about 35 miles per hour and press the brake quite firmly. If your car really veers right or left then, you know your problem is in the brakes. As a note, about 70% of your braking power comes from front rotors. But the shaking you are describing sounds like you could use a brake job. Pads and rotors are very inexpensive to purchase and rotors these days are not worth having turned...just buy new ones. If you are somewhat mechinically inclined, you can do a complete pad and rotor job for about 150 bucks saving yourself hundreds of dollars vs. having someone do it for you. Please let me know how everything turns out.

Poor control...swaying


Hi,

It could be your wheel alignment which usually causes the veering like you described. Have it checked for Alignment - not expensive and also good for even wear of the tires.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate my solution,

Thanks.
