Is this a major problem.

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

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

I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. My front end began rattling back and forth very badly when I would hit approximately 50mph but the problem would alleviate itself when i braked, then eased over...


I have to admit this does sound like a tire issue, but if rotating them doesn't help then you may need 4 tires. I also believe there is something els the matter causing the tires to wear like this. either the ball joints or suspension. Since the problem went away with two newer tires for awile tells me new tires fixed the problem but it came back due to sometnig worn out and causing the issue. Before getting new tires have your mechanic garuntee there is no other hidden isse in the suspension causing the break down of your tires.

My jeep wrangler shakes at 55 mph


lol Make sure you wash the inside of your rims after you go playing in the mud. a small amount of dried mud will make your wheel shake at a high speed. It will unbalance your wheel.

2001 Jeep wrangler, at 45-50 mph, the front end and steering wheel shakes real bad.


I would start by first making sure you dont have a bent rim. Check the tires for any bubbles in the sidewall or any deformation in the tire as this would suggest a broken cord inside the tire. If that checks out, get the tires balanced and see if that solves the problem.

I have a 2002 jeep wrangler that seems to start shaking at 60mph below or over ok. It is not major but noticeable. Where do I start looking? Thanks Dan


Grab hold off the prop-shaft to see if it is quite solid, it could be a worn UJ. Check the balance weight on the same shaft to ensure it hasn't slipped forward or backwards on the shaft.
Then get wheels checked, they could need re-balancing.

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

Check front end again for any side play (small amounts at different locations can add up. Also check that steering box is not loose on frame.Check all bushings as well. If all else fails, if caster is adjustable have another degree or two put in. (positive)

1995 jeep shimmys and steering wheel shakes


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
