Have you checked you Unit bearing assembly? ( wheel bearings)
I get in lots of mud and have changed mine out twice already. Warm up the bearings and jack it up on the front end and grab the tire on the top and the bottom ,If it has a lot of slack it then you will probably need to change it. Spin the wheel and see if you can hear it clicking.
If it is a bad unit bearing, the one on the other side will be soon to follow.

95'95' mercury cougar xr7 shakes at slow speeds. When I get to highway speeds shaking starts to fade away.


Hi John,

Sometimes this is related to tread ply separation. the key is the frequency or rate of the vibration. Why it steadies at faster speed is anyone's guess. To test you jack up a corner of the car, spin the wheel and observe across the tread while tire is spinning.

Another way to test is to have the tires balanced and have those guys check for trueness.

If you find this condition, there is no cure but new tires.

I have an 2001 Chevy Cavalier. About 3 months ago, going about 60 I hit a center block in the road. Tire blew out and had to replace. Now the car shakes especially in the steering wheel. Also feels like...


sounds like you also damaged tie rod ends and possibly your cv axle as well. a chuck of concrete like that will cause bad damage. put car on hoist and have a close look

My 1989 Chevey Celebrity started shaking the other day the front part of the car, not like the front end is messed up but it shakes.


Could be a wheel, tire, or axle shaft.
You could rotate the tires front to back and see if the vibration moves.
If it does the problem is one of the tires or wheels.
If it stays in the front, its probably one of the axle shafts. It could also be a hub bearing or something loose in the suspension. But a loose suspension part would normally show up when you hit a bump rather than on a smooth road.

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced


You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

Front end shakes,tie rod and upper ball joints have been replaced


Very little info for a fix. Tie rod and upper ball joints do not make a front end shake. Lower ball joints wear out before the uppers do.
Front end shakes at what speed, if you have a broken belt in one of your front tires you will notice it more at low speeds. Mud or snow stuck in wheel will make them vibrate at speed. Lug nuts tight since front end work? You need to give more info. Switch front tires with back tires. If shake is in steering wheel it more than likely is front end but if you feel it in your seat it is more than likely in the rear of the car.

Front end shaking


I had the same problem on a 2003 Kia Sedona where the front end would vibrate excessively while accerating at freeway speeds. Over time it got worse and was noticable at lower and lower speeds and while just maintaining speed, but went away when I took my foot off the gas.

It turned out to be the inner CV joint on the passenger side. You can check for this by grabbing the inner and outer half axels with large vice grips or slip-joint pilers and turning them in opposite directions while listening for crunching or "loose parts" noises.

The CV is sold with the axle so I just bought the outer half axle for $80 (which has the inner and outer CV joints attached) and replaced it. If you do it yourself, make sure you have a ball spline fork, a hub puller tool, and a big torque wrench for putting the bearing assembly back on. You can rent these at AutoZone.

The bad CV joint also caused the bearing to go bad. It had burn marks and made a grinding noise while turning. It was very hard to get out, so I had to take the assembly to a machine shop to have it taken out and the new one put in. $35 for bearing and $30 for machine shop work.

After repair, I took an 800 mile road trip that weekend with no problems other than barely noticable vibration from the driver side at 70+ mph. I figure vibration was so bad pre-repair that it messed up something on the other side as well, so I'll check out the driver side bearing and CV when I get a chance.

Steering wheel vibrates thumping noise


At what speed do you feel the shake and does it only happen when you apply the brakes?
