Car shakes on front driver side after 70mph
Hey,, The problem may not be relate to the wheels at all. Fro what your telling me it sounds like a broken engine mount. This will cause the problem. Basically the engine mount hols the engine to the vehicle and the rubber in it dampens the vibrations. With the rubber broken you will feel the vibrations on the pedal..
However to mention the can be another reason, This one is very unlikely here seeing as the pedal vibrates but just in case check your Alignment and Cambering.
basically take the vehicle to a mechanic to locate and replace the engine mount , ore than likely is the rear mount or the one closest to the driver. You can do this yourself if you like,
1.) Locate the broken Mount (you will see the rubber in the mount broken)
2.) Use a Car jack (the ones you use the change tires) , and use it to lift the engine up to reduce the pressure on the mount.
3.) remove the broken mount and replace it.
Its just 4 bolts, 2 on the engine 2 on the mount to the car body. You will need to get a torque wrench and a lever (cast iron metal pipe will work fine) to add extra leverage to turn the bolts off.
