This can arise from a variety of causes
- lost wheel balance weights, throwing this out
- a bent rim from hitting a pothole
- an out of round tire, which can develop over time
- worn or loose wheel hub bearing
- worn or loose suspension joints
- worn or loose steering components eg tie rod end

If unsure how to check these, get along to a suspension and tire shop, as it could be something dangerous to you.

SOURCE: front end and steering wheel shakes

when slowing to make right turn is it more like a clicking noise, does it do it while turning or just when slowing down. If it is while you are turning it is most likely the right cv axle drive shaft popping. When at a stop with ac on does it shake if you put it in park and how do the rpms read in park or in drive. Did they change the trans mount also dont thank that is it just trying to get a better understanding so I can better assist you.

SOURCE: steering and real bad vibration in front end

That is known as "the death wobble" for very obvious reasons. You need to install steering dampeners . They look like shocks and they mount between the drag link and the frame. They will cure the problem. Don't delay putting them on your Jeep. Hope this helps.

I hit a bump in the road and now the truck pulls real bad to the right and the steering wheel shakes real bad at low speed and when I hit the brakes? 2000 gmc sonoma


check your wheel is on nice and tight. check that the yore has no bulges or damage to all sides.
If everything appears okay take it to a suspension/steering specialist for a look ....sounds like you may have suffered suspension damage.
Who is responsible for the maintenance of that road? I would consider contacting them for an inquiry about possible compensation for the cost of repair, they always fix the road pretty quickly after such inquiries!!!!!
Taking a photo of the offending bump might be advisable

1970 ford f250 shakes real bad when I let off the gas. Any ideas I'm stumped


it depends what shakes ? if it only dose it when your slowing right down without braking then it could be an engine mount. if your braking it could be many things from warped disks to track rod ends/ball joints/loose wheel bearings. try and trace the shake. front right-left/steering wheel/back right -left.checks to do are,jack car up and hold the top and bottom of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement/hold the sides of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement ( on all wheels ) grab engine and shake it while looking at both sides ( checking engine mounts ) shaking can be caused by a number of things even bad shockers. good luck

Why does the steering wheel shake real bad


Tire out of balance, tire has broken belt and has a bulge, or a flat spot on tire. You may also have a broken shock or strut.

What makes it shakes


Sounds like bad brake pulsation, meaning warped rotors. When rotors are warped , they push the caliper piston in and out ,causing the brake pedal to pulsate and shake the steering wheel. I would start with replacing the front pads and rotors, and if you have drum brakes in the rear, have those cleaned and adjusted for a more balanced braking system.

I have a 2003 impala I just replaced my driver tier and it was balanced. And it is shaking bad over 30 stops when I go over 50 ??


DRIVE REAL SLOW LIKE 5 MPH ON FLAT GROUND. NO BUMPS PARKING LOT.LET GO OF THE STEERING WHEEL IF THE STEERING WHEEL ROCKS BACK AND FORTH. YOU HAVE A CORD SEPARATION IN A FRONT WHEEL IF YOU FEEL YOUR SET ROCKING. THEN ITS A REAR WHEEL. THE ONLY TO FIX A CORD SEPARATION IS TO REPLACE THE TIRE.

Front wheels are loose and wobbly. too much play in steering wheel, and while driving the wheels cause the whole car to shake real bad. what needs to be replaced?


There is a steering dampener underneath that looks like a strut or shock absorber. Replacing this should correct the problem.

Steering wheel shakes when i hit bumps


Bad shocks will cause the front jump around. Also check the tires for uneven wear.
The entire front end should be looked over if the shocks are bad you may also have other parts worn as well.
