When does it shake? Low speed, off brake... Bad tires. High speed off brake... Balance tires. High speed on brakes... Rotors. Trucks and AWD can be transfer case, diff, ujoints, out of balance driveshaft and tires. Have your car lifted and walk around it, always check tires, ballpoints, tie rode ends

You need to have the front end inspected for damaged steering components. Check your Tie Rod ends, A frame bushings and ball joints to make sure there isn't excessive wear or lose connections. If all of that is in good working order Drive down the road with a friend in the next lane over and have them look to see if either wheel in bouncing. If either wheel is bouncing you need to replace the struts. they are replaced in pairs, both sides. The front end will need to be aligned after you do this.

SOURCE: brakes

I don't know if the brakes dragging would cause the shaking or not but I will ask a question or two.
Does the car steer to the right or left when you apply the brakes? This would be caused by any leaking fluid or if one side is dragging heavily. This is because when the brakes heat up too much they begin to fade and loose there stopping power. If one side is dragging the car will pull to the other side when you apply the brakes.
You need to make shure that the brakes are clean and dry. Free from all grease or break fluid.
If a wheel is dragging the rotor will overheat and will cause "Blueing" of the rotors or they will look like they have small cracks in them.
Also did the shaking start imediatly after all the work or did it take a while?

SOURCE: when i drive it it shakes really bad it has new

The front end of the vehicle has several parts that cause the front end to shake. Have you had the front end checked for bad tie rod ends, That is the most common problem.Another thing when does it shake? If it shakes while applying the brakes it could be the rotors need to be turned or it could be both the tie rod ends or the rotors.

Shakes acceleration


Either a bent rim, tire is out of balanced and tire is bad. Rotate the tires and see if it goes from the wheel to the seat. If you can feel it in the seat then it's a bad tire.

At around 25 0r 30 mph my truck starts shaking really bad. almost like my tires are turning in and out. what could cause this?


Check to see if you do not hava a buckled wheel or a badly loose wheel bearing. Jack up the front wheels and spin and shake them. There should not be any play or wheels running out of true.
Have the whole front suspension checked out, it could be any one or a number of things contributing to the shaking.

I have a 2005 trail blazer and my truck shakes when I get over 60


Could be many many things, from an alignment, to tire balancing to suspension or driveline problems. If you're feeling it shake in the steering wheel while driving, that eleminates driveline problems and you can focus on the other issues.

It sounds like somethhing is grinding when going down the road, and gets worse when i make a curve in the road. Also when i come to a stop my anti lock brakes kick in on a dry road. What could this be?


Sounds like you have a wheel bearing starting to go bad. If it gets worse when you turn left than the right side is usually bad. If it gets worse when turning right than the left is usually bad. Sometimes you can jack up the vehicle and spin the wheels by hand and hear/feel the bad wheel bearing. Also sometimes you can grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position and push/pull and feel the tire move. Another indication that the wheel bearing is bad.

My front wheels shake while driving, what do I need to do to stop i?


if it's at highway speed, balance wheels. If it's all the time, tires are probably bad.

My car is shaking really bad, feels like I keep hitting bumps, even when I'm not...when driving down the highway if I let go of the wheel, it moves itself back and forth really badly...feels like it is...


SImple solution would be the wheels need to be balanced.

Not so simple solutions are
(1) tires that have delaminated the tread or some other failure (Very bad, could result in a blowout, need to be replaced)
(2) Need front end alignment
(3) Rim bent from hitting pothole or curb.

If tires look ok, are not worn out, and don't appear to need replacing, I'd start by getting them balanced. Most places you buy tires today offer road hazard & lifetime balancing, so this may not cost you anything if you return to the place you purchased tires from.

Once on the balance machine, they should be able to determine if items 1 or 3 apply. That just leaves item 2 to consider.

VIBRATING FRONT WHEELS

Car steering


There could be numerous problems going wrong. Your car is rear wheel drive so it could very well be a bad wheel bearing. If it is extremely loose it can cause a shake in your steering wheel. You may want to check on the condition of your tires and rims especially the left front. A bad tire can cause a shake and pull. If you know how to use your car jack you can try jacking the vehicle up, and put both hands on your front wheel and move it manually to see if there is looseness. Most shops only charge about 1/2 hour to shake down the front end. BMW parts are expensive so be prepared!
