Wheel hub probably out. Try jacking car up a bit and seeing if you can move the tire when holding it at the top and bottom. If there's play there, probably the hub

Your front "ball & socket" joints are in dire need of lubrication. You need to do this:
Take the tires off, and look for a fill plug behind the hub, on the housing, above the ball & socket. Remove the plug, and fill it up with 80-90 gear oil. Replace the plug, do the other side.
What you have is a dry joint, and the clicking noise is coming from the u-joint (actually called a "Rzeppa" joint), inside the ball/socket/hub...a good lubrication will eliminate your condition. Hope this answers your question, please feel free to comment back with any other questions...And, thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: front end shake 90 toyota 4runner 4x4

My 1990 4Runner shook majorly when hitting speeds of 70MPH and up. The front shocks needed replacing and the tires had worn unevenly and needed to be rotated and balanced.

Rear end feels really loose when turning from stop


Check the tire inflation. Also, if you can jack the tire up off the ground, rotate the tire and feel across the top of the tread. If there seems to be any high/low spots or feeling of side-to-side tread movement, you may have a separated belt in the tire. This can cause the "loose" feeling you are getting.

There is a very loud humming noise coming from the front left tire! plz I await your reply. Thks.


You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop

SYMPTOMS OF BALL JOINT WEAR


If you make a hard right or left hand turn (with steering wheel turned until it stops) you'll hear and feel a pop sensation.When you drive over potholes you'll feel a slight pull to one side.If it is one of the upper balljoints,you can grab the tire with both hands near the top(11 and 1 o'clock) and pull the wheel back and forth.You will feel looseness if the upper balljoint is bad.

When driving down the road the truck pulls to the left or to the right


you have a worn out or loose steering component. easiest way to find it is to jack up the front of the truck so both tires are off the ground. grab the tire and "turn" it left to right, to simulate the actual steering. you will probably feel some kind of movement. like a loose feeling...its difficult to put into writing. but if you watch the steering parts while a buddy trys to shake the tire around a bit, then you should be able to spot what is loose or worn. keep an eye on the tierod ends, and the ball joints especially. but it could even be a bushing on the control arm. once you find whats loose, you either tighten it up, or replace the parts as needed. you may have to try shaking both tires (not at the same time), depending on what side of your truck the bad part is on. also check to see if the tire moves when you try to move it front to back. that would indicate bad wheel bearings.

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!
