Hello:

A vibration in the steering can be caused by several things, but the first thing you should do is a visual inspection of the front tires and rims. Look for anything out of place , such as bulges on the tire tread or side, dents or bends in the wheels. Next you should inspect the steering components: while someone slowly turns the steering wheel side to side. Look for play or wear in the steering linkage, such as the tie rod ends, or rack and pinion unit, and look for tears in the CV joint boots, or leaking grease from that area. If you are not familiar with these items, usually a reputable shop will inspect your car for free, to let you know what they find. Last but not least, if you don't find any visable clues, have someone ride along to try to pinpoint the location of the vibration, either left or right, slowing down or speeding up, etc.
Good luck!

06 Murano steering shakes when accelerating around 60 mph. Just balanced tires, still shakes. Doesn't shake while coasting same speed


Do you feel the shaking in the steering wheel as well? If so, it may be a worn steering linkage. If not, have your CV joints and U-Joints checked and, if you have a 4WD, have the transfer case output shaft bearing checked.

1999 Ford Taurus, steering wheel shakes when driving due to front passanger side tire movement/problem. The tires have been rotated and still problem from that area. What could it be?


Usually a steering wheel shake is a bad tire. Any chance you have 2 bad tires on the car? Only a front tire will make the steering wheel shake.

When driving my car the steering wheel shakes


If the steering wheel starts to shake between 55-65 MPH then you need to balance the wheels. If it shakes when you press the brakes, your brake rotors are warped and need to be cut or replaced. If the steering wheel shakes at low speeds then it's possible one of your rims is bent or one of your tires is out of round. Leaving a car parked for a long time in snowy and icy roads will damage your tires, causing them to warp. Depending on which situation is causing your steering wheel to shake, have it looked at.

Steering shacks replaced steering damper still shacks


shakes?or shacks?Let's just say that you mean shake.If your brake pedal pulsates,replace the rotors.If your steering wheel shakes(low speed)broken belt in front tire.Jack up one tire enough to clear the ground,spin it.Spins nice,lower and jack up the other.Spin that one,if the belt is broke it'll be very noticable.While up in the air check the lug nuts,if they're loose it can make the steering shake too.If the shake is at highway speed,bad shocks or tie rods or ball joints or a combination of these.Jack up a front tire and try to move it(Key turned off to lock steering).If it moves top to bottom,ball joint.Side to side,tie rod.Doesn't move,shocks.The worst could be a bad hub bearing,but you'd hear it and you said nothing about any noise.

97' jeep cherokee laredo shakes when driving


Could be a number of things from ball joints to your pitman arm(arm that steers the tires). It dont sound like tire are way out of balance because yu said it only starts when you hit a bump. If it was me, Id crawl under the front end and start shaking different parts until I figured out what was loose. if its shaking that bad you should definitly be able to tell when you shake it.
