Check the backside Of your tire. I drive an 89' f-150, and had a very similar noise. Turns out I had a rock jammed in my rotor and it was hitting the caliper every time the wheel made a rotation. I ultimately had to use a crowbar to pry the rock out. The other thing you could, and should, check is your brakes on that side. Check break pads, rotor condition, and confirm that your caliper is not worn out. I would also suggest checking your lockout hub. It could very well be that your lockout is worn out, and catching just a little bit, even though it is supposedly unlocked and disengaged. While your down there, check the joints of your front axle to check for any slop or play in them. Replace as needed.

On a 1989 toyota pickup truck sr22re 4 cyclender 2wheel drive automatic how do you do a front end alignment to stop the truck from shakeing at 65 mph.


Shaking is caused by one or a combination of the following things.
Cord separation in one or more of the tires, worn front end parts causing excessive play, check ball joint and all components. And last check for a bent wheel or hub face that the wheel bolts to. There are some other reasons but these are the most common.

Driving between 35-50 mile ph truck will start vibrating


There are many stages of vibration. The most common is in the steering and USUALLY a steering dampner will correct this. However, your description is not real defined and until the technician actually experiences it, it cannot be properly diagnosed

My neighbor's 1998 Cavalier is making a strange noise. It has automatic transmission, new tires, and 155,000 miles. When idling at a stop, it sounds fine, but when it starts movig and hits 15 or 20 mph...


Try getting on an open road, get up to about 45 MPH or where ever the noise is loudest. Put the car in neutral and turn the engine off. You can roll in a straight line for a long time. Make sure nodody is around you. If the sound stops when the engine is off, then the noise is coming from the motor. If the sound is still there, its got to be coming from the tires. Id guess a wheel bearing.

While driving I make a turn around 45 mph and the cars front right side starts to shake. Also, when Im driving 60 mph on the highaway it starts to shake every 5-7 seconds. What can be the problem?


almost certainly a wheel bearing that is just about to break up.could also be track rod end if you have any play in steering.you need to jack up the car(wheel off the ground)and with your hands at 9-3 oclock, rock from side to side,any "play"will be OBVIOUS. enlist the "eye" or "hands" of a volunteer to help,makes it easier.

When I get to 45 mph my car has a thumping noise. Sounds like to me something to do with the drive train...cv axle, or something else. please help me I need this car fixed.


Check your tires, you may have a bad tire and make sure it's at proper tire pressure 32psi. Also check all the linkage like the sway bar end links, the bushings could be worn and moving around. Best thing to do is spend some money and have a tire shop rebalanced the wheels $15.00 each at most places and have them inspect the front suspension for any damaged or worn parts causing the noise you have. You can try rotating the front to rear wheels to see if the noise moves from the front to the rear to eliminate the tires as the cause of the noise, just make sure there all at 32psi. Good luck and be safe.
