Not 100% on your details but if your saying you can fill it in your steering wheel while stop with your foot on the break. check your power steering pump.

SOURCE: shaking/vibration in front end & steering wheel

Nor sure about the 2001 model, but on the 97 model, the track bar bolts to the frame on the driver's side. The bolts work loose. Dont merely look at it, go ahead and tighten them. There are two bolts facing upward, at the end lf the track bar. Then there are 3 nuts behind the driver's side front wheel that need to be tight. You dont have to take the wheel off so see them. I tightened all of mine and the death wobble nearly went away ....( 90%)....then I replaced the steering stabilizer ( damper). Hope your 2001 is just as easy !

SOURCE: very bad shaking after hitting a bump

this is known as death wobble because it feels like you are going to die but slowing down will end it.

The cause for death wobble are:

  1. Worn or loose tie rod ends on your steering linkage.
  2. Worn or loose trackbar bushings or tie rod ends on the trackbar itself.
  3. front end needs alignment.
  4. and many others but the common reasons are listed above.
try to realign the front end. If it doesnt help, then you do indeed have worn steering / suspension components.

Haha the death wobble replace the steering dampner or shock on the lower tortion bar of the suspension with an heavy duty upgraded one. Not a difficult repair check the tortion bar bushing for play. But the death wobble is caused by the steering shock. Seen it a lot fixes it every time. Hope the info helps rate it please.

That and other bushings and idler arms worn. I would suggest a free inspection somewhere for them to show you what needs repaired.

Hello, My thoughts are that someone needs to look underneath the truck from the front bumper to the rear axle. There are so many things that can cause this.

If the problem came after the truck was sitting a long time, you can have flat spots on the tires or rust spots on the rotors. As the rust builds up where moisture was held by the brake pads, the rotors will chaff against the pads until the rust is worn away. If the rust is thick enough, there will be rubbing and shaking without applying the brakes.

Check your U-joints. The U-joint to the front axle from the Transfer case seems to go out more from sitting than through use. Check the front hubs and CV joints and of course the rest of the U-joints. Look at the driveshafts for little square rust patches where balance weights fell off.

While driving at 40mph and shaking, slip the gearshift to Neutral and note if the shaking stops. Of course the truck will eventually stop, but you can feel if the shake was from the engine "Chugging" and better tell what direction the shake is coming from.

Check your tierods for excess play. I hope my solution helps you. I would be interested in knowing the end result.

When im driving my front end gets to shaking so bad i have to pull off the road, it use to quit when i mash the brake but not any more. Its a suzuki samurai 4-wheel drive


The ball joints need replacing and maybe the tierod ends too. That violent shaking can cause part failure which could cause you wreck the vehicle. Don't drive it usless it is inspected and repaired.

You have identified the problem when you pulled the drive shaft and the shake was gone. So you know it is between the tranny and the rear end. If it is not the universal joints, then you have a warped drive shaft.
