Some things to do are to check that all the tire sizes match. if they do not you need to correct that. next is to measure the outside of each tire.... the diameter has to be pretty close on each axle. next is to roll each tire down the drive way.... if it wobbles instead of rolling straight one of the belts in the tire has shifted... replace it. next make sure you have the proper air pressure in each tire per axle

please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

My 23006ft dodge status is shimmering..no matter what speed I drive..what could be wrong with it?


Out of balance tires, or tread wear, or you hit something that has miss aligned your front steering system.

Vibration in front end while driving. steering wheel shaking. stops at higher speeds.


Have your tires checked for tread separation and your wheels checked for balance. Out of balance tires will go through harmonics such that at one speed it will vibrate a lot more than at another (higher or lower) speed.

I have a problem with disc brakes, 5-6days to destroy them and the car shakes ... why?


car shakes which is called shimmy shake,if brake pads been replaced wheels still shimmy, you have worn brake rotors with low and high spots,you could have bad wheel bearing, you have worn out tie rod ends and worn out ball joints,you could have tire out of balance,also you could need front end alignment.many things will cause wheels to do the shimmy shake.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee steering wheel shimmies back and forth so much at 45-50 mph when you hit a bump it feels like the wheels are going to fall off. Already put new shocks, steering damper and panard...


Check your ball joints. also, if the tires are somewhat worn many times they won't have enough rotating mass to overcome side harmonics and can shake but most oftern the joints are worn. No play is acceptable there.

Front wheels shimmy not all the time


Front tires may need balanced. Have the alignment checked. Try rotating the tires from front to rear.

Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book

not a big problem. It may be tie rod wearing. If you hear a click when turning it would be the ball joints. If it does not make clicking sound, then most likely tie rod ends or improper alignment

Front end shimmey on 2004 Maxima SE


It is possible that one of your new tires has what is called a slipped belt which is basically a faulty tire.

If they were able to successfully perform the front end alignment you can almost be sure that all of your ball joints, tie rod ends etc are ok as these really don't attribute to "shimmying" felt in the steering wheel.

The are several common causes of shaking felt in the steering wheel:
1. Out of balance wheel/tire combo
2. Slipped belt in a tire
3. Bent wheel

Your shop should be able to pinpoint the cause easily.

Take your car back to the shop that replaced your tires and tell them what you are experiencing. They can check your new tires again to make sure the belt on them did not slip.
