Have a wheel alignment done as the upper strut mounting plate was not put back in the right place . . The mounting plate is off set so by turning it around ,the wheel alignment changes and when the strut was re assembled the original holes were not in the right place and the alignment has altered.

Perhaps you also bent a wheel. Whoever replaced the strut should have checked all the front end components. I hope this helps.

I have a 2008 Infinity QX-56 and it shakes terribly when I apply the brakes when driving at highway speeds. It also feels like the suspension is bad when you go over a bump or hit a pot-hole.


Warped brake rotor usually cause high vibration at high speeds. But you can also feel it at lower speeds. But bad ball joints and tie rod end will cause vibration at high speeds. Ball joints will pop at pot holes, sometimes. Tie rods can be felt in the steering wheel at a stop. Move the wheel slightly to the left and right, you can feel/hear a tap as you turn it.

2008 chevy cobalt violent vibration arouhd 55mph ok below and above speed have replaced joints tires struts, vibration still there


Warped rotors or out of balance tires can cause this. Have you had a front-end alignment after putting these steering/suspension parts on? When replacing these parts IT IS CRITICAL TO HAVE ALIGNED. Also, Have you checked condition of front HUB/WHEEL BEARINGS?

Front axle vibrations

Front end vibration


First check the easy things, tie rod ends, ball joints, etc.I did all of this on my 2001 Aurora with 150K miles on it and still had vibration. The fix was to replace the half-axles. The old ones were worn and had a lot of play in them. I would get vibration as the speed increased.The parts cost me about $60.00/ea. I installed them by removing the bolts on the front struts, the axle nut, tie rod end, and brake caliper. You need to get enough room to remove and install the axle without putting too much bend in it. Over flexing the shaft can damage it.

Feel vibration in front end of vehicle. Seems to be coming from both left and front tires. This occurs at low speeds and highway speeds.


lots of possibilities here. have you recently hit anything such as pot holes? try rotating tires from rear to front and see if there is a difference. Beyond that it could be anything from bent wheels to out of balance tires(less likely to be noticed at low speeds), or perhaps bad tires(choppy tread). Next is to check steering and suspension for worn or damaged parts.
Hope this helps.

The past week my car, specifically the front end has been vibrating especially the steering wheel whenever I drive over 60 mph. At first I thought it was just because there was ice frozen around the struts...


High speed steering wheel vibrations and wobbling are almost always due to an unbalanced tire. Start there, cheap, and then move onto more expensive front end part repairs. If you have those silly mag type big wheels which collect and hold gunks of ice in them, then this is what you can expect.

98 chevy astro front end vibrates and shakes at 65 mph


You may have to get your wheels re ballanced if you lost one of the weight's on the rim. The other thing to is a bent rim if you hit a large pot hole or crub and last to see if the tire it self has funny wear patterns on the treads.
Other things to look for if your wheels are ok. Check the ball joints Check the tie rod ends Check and pay attention to the Idler and Pitman arm. Your looking for any excessive movments
A good way is to grease all that is mentioned above and see if the vibration is gone.
Lost thing would be the brake rotors but you'ld now that by having vibrations throught out any speed when you apply the brakes to slow down.
Good luck and hope this helps, you should be able to do this on your own other then checking the wheel ballance.

Front end vibration


on both my Camrys, i had this problem. You could really notice it when you were driving down the road going 40-60 mph and punch the gas - car would vibrate, let off the gas - vibration stops, punch the gas - car vibrates...... On both, it was the CV joints. It is much easier to just replace the drive axles (with the new cv joints and boots already installed). For my last replacement, i think thy were only around $65 each.
