Vibration or a "shimmey" is an indication that the tires need to be balanced. This is not related to the wheel alignment you had done A poorly balanced tire will vibrate on its own, transferring the vibration all the way through the steering wheel. Have the tires balanced. If this doesn't fixy your issue, then the problem lies between the rotors (could have a warped rotor) and the rack and pinion. Best of luck on your problem.

I own a 1992 corolla and have the same issue, had an alignment done, new tires put on and balanced, took care of most of the vibration but still does it at high speeds, had the tie rod ends and ball joints checked. all good. found out that i had a broken wheel stud on 2 tires, got those replaced and now the vibration is gone

Hi, I have Toyota prius 2004 that has this problem: steering wheel click and vibration at higher speed


Bad wheel bearing a possibility. Or, warped tire. Jack the car up and spin the wheels and see. It will have to be in neutral to do that. If it is that bad there should be some visible play. If the bearing is bad, steering sharply one way or the other will make the sound more or less, depending on the increased or decreased load on it.

How can i straighten my steering wheel on a 93 toyota corolla what steps might i have to take.And what bolts should i loosen first .In order to fix it.Thank you


if your steering wheel is off center, you probably need a wheel alignment. there is no way to just straighten the wheel. it is done through alignment adjustments on your tie rods.

2003 Toyota Corolla Wheel Alignment


The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.

My car vibrates the steering system is in good condition, has a proper alignment, proper balancing, changed two engine support and perform a repair in the stump of the left front wheel


Hi I am Vortash the main things that cause wheel Vibration are
1/ wheel balancing ( thrown weights mostly )
2/ wheel bearings
3/ susppension arms
4/ ball joints
5/ track rod ends worn
6/ steering shims loose
7/ damaged cv joints or drive shafts (transverse engines )
8/ Prop shaft missalignment (rear wheel drives )
9/ and this is the most popular one tyres not fitted correctly (twisted )
10/ unlikely but more common than you might think Buckled wheels pot hole at 40mph do a lot of damage ..
hope this gives you some ideas and good luck with finding a solution regards Vortash

Steering wheel of my Toyota Corolla LE 2007 vivrates


Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.

I have a '99 Corolla, and mine did that until I replaced a back tire and got my wheels aligned. Did you change the tires yourself or did a shop do it (which means they balanced the tires)? When was the last time you got an alignment?
