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.

why not get the car serviced, have them check it out before.... bad happens.

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

Ive got this bad grinding problem comming from my front driver side, it kinda sounds like my breaks are metal 2 metal but they ain't I wanna know what the grinding is we can't seem 2 find them...


If not the brakes, it could be a ruined wheel bearing. To check, raise the wheel just off the ground with your jack, parking brake on. Grab the tire, try to move it back and forth, just feel for play right at the wheel. The tire should have no play in it, except for a very small amount, only a fraction of an inch. If you feel significant movement shaking it, or moving it, its probably a bearing. You'd better replace it before it gets worse. It is bad on the tire, too-it will wear uneven. After the work is done, you will need an alignment for your car.

While driving dwn the road i hve a bad shake in my steering wheel i have a 1999 gmc yukon


it sounds like the front tires need balancing.if you drive the truck slowly(creeping down the road at about 5mph)and lightly holding the steering wheel do you feel the steering wheel moving back and forth.this could indicate a bad belt in a tire where as a wheel imbalance won`t show up at this low of a speed,but a bad belt will.also have the front end checked for worn front end components and wheel bearings,this can cause a bad shake too.

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.

2005 Grand Prix shakes at low speeds, it also does at high speeds but not as bad. Steering wheel does not shake. Front tires have been balanced and the rears have not been.


Sounds like you have a broken belt in one of your rear tires, or a bent wheel. This would feel like the car is rocking a little bit like a boat on small waves. You can check this out by lifting the rear tires off the ground a slowly rotate them while looking at the tread, if you see the tire really wobble or have a bump in one spot that's it.

My steering wheel rotates back and forthYou can


You need to verify that you don't have a low tire first,After that have the wheels checked on a spin balancer to check for a bent wheel,If you can't see a bend wheel problem,it will be a seperated tire or the steel belt shifted in one tire,You can rotate the tire to get that feeling out of the steering wheel until you replace ties.
