Car shimmies at 45 mph


have a front suspension check done and replace any worn ball joints and other failed parts . Check tyres for bulges in the side walls and belt separation . Have a wheel alignment done as this problem is a Castor wobble from negative castor settings. If a 4WD vehicle with a shocky on the tie rod bar have it replaced as it is not opertaional

My steering wheel shimmies at 40 mph only


All you need is a wheel balance. Either that or you have some mud or ice stuck in a rim, or it could be a bent rim.

Check the condition of your tires and suspension. this problem is usually caused by bad component or alignment. Special attention is given to camber and caster.

Right front shimmy at low speeds, 25 to 40 mph. Replaced front wheel brake pads but was not able to remove the right rotor from hub although it was loose from lug bolts. Steering slightly left and right...


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.

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.

Still have Shimmy at around 75 MPH. No slow speed shimmy or shimmy during braking. Just replaced the Front Tension Strut bushings with the Powerflex polyurethane ones. What else could be contributing...


Balance your wheels at a good shop. Have the tires checked for out of round/side wear. Are there any sidewall bubbles?

You could have a problem with the wheels themselves...but it is rare.
