Why is my front driver side tire wobble when i hit a bump


First, have the tire inspected before you do any expressway driving. you could have a damaged tire with a tread or internal ply separation. second, inspect the front shock absorbers, it sounds like the left front shock has failed and lost its hydraulic fluid. third have the front steering linkage and front suspension checked for worn or loose tie rods, idler arm, ball joints and stabilizer bar links. do this ASAP as you don't want to have the tire fail or any parts break while you are driving!

Front end vibration


check you springs you may have a broken spring also jack the wheel up one at a time and check the bearing hands 9 and 3 pull side to side and then up and down at 12 to 6 any excessive movement and the bearing needs changing. do this to both wheels. also check the anti roll bar rubbers all 4 of them check for splits or wear this can also make a clunking sound on bumps of any size. failing all these you may need to have your disc's checked as they may have become warped can happen if you use them alot ie hills, sudden stopping

Can i go bigger than 215-70-15 215 dont seem tall enough ? if i go to 16 inch will it effect the speedometer?


Hello, I can tell you about my 2002 Gran Marquis LSE wheels and tires. On my car which had the 16" Wheels, Mercury wanted a low rider style for all chassis, including Police cars. They used "60" Series tires and when parking mine, the front concrete curb stops would consistently allow the front bumper cover or the air dam underneath the car to hit. ( Partially from the settling of the Air Suspension.) Even snow covered roads would scrap the car bottom. I bumped my tires up to a 65 Series which seemed a good compromise and it helped. A 75 Series may do you good on 15" rims.

I started looking for taller tires to raise the body. I found a good Website in DiscountTires.com, which when you plug in different tires OR rim sizes will give you the Speedo error for a few preset speeds. The site also lists Alternative tire sizes normally used for YOUR car and Level 1, Level 2, wheel upgrades which is tire jargon known to some.

You can get some Speedos Electronically recalculated for the different tires or wheel sizes. Just make sure the new wheels need the same thickness of studs as are on your car. You need to watch the clearance at the front tires' back wheel lip and the inside of the tire by the frame.

You can ask a tire store to pull 1 tire in your size and roll out a few other sizes and stand them side by side to see the difference in height. I hope you have found my solution very helpful in making your choice.

2004 dodge ram 4x4 front end shaking problems when we hit a bump...replaced the front wheel bearings,upper/lower ball joints,steering damper!!! any ideas


Could possibly need the steering box adjusted. It might be a little loose. And tire balance usually makes it shimmy. Could have a broken belt in one of the tires. Jack up the wheel and spin the tire and check the run out. (look for a wiggle when spinning the tire).

04 Dodge 2500 4X4 shakes violently after hitting bump at 55 mph +


The bumps do initiate the shaking. When my 2006 Ram 2500 4x4 started shaking, I had just had it aligned that morning. A month or so before that alignment, my passenger side outer tie-rod broke while driving down a rock road. I replaced it with a heavy duty MOOG tie-rod end. Anyway, the same day I had it aligned I was driving back home from a job and towing my bobcat behind me. I hit a bump and the truck did the "death wobble" with the front end shaking violently up and down in an alternating fashion (one tire in the air while one tire on the ground and then vice-versa). I changed the tires first (which were worn-out 305/75/17 mud tires). Since the day I bought the truck new in Jan. 2006, I've had larger tires on the truck than the tiny 235/75/17s that came with it and I've done a lot of heavy towing with it and never had a problem until this alignment was done at Sears. I;m still trying to figure out if it was the alignment specs that they used or if the problem coincidentally started that same day. I also changed the steering stabilizer. Neither the new tires nor the stabilizer/damper helped the problem. So I changed the other outer tie-rod end and the upper and lower ball joints (all MOOG with grease fittings). I turns out they were worn out. So, the truck no longer shakes violently up and down when I hit a bump. That problem seems to be in check. However, now when I hit a bump the truck's front end wobbles side-to-side. I can do a few things to recover from it. I can hit the brakes pretty hard and sudden (which can cause an accident on the interstate), or I can **** the steering wheel side-to-side a few times (from 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock) and that stops it immediately...until the next bump in the road. Also, if I let my foot off the accelerator just before hitting a bump and let the truck coast over it instead of power through it, sometimes the truck will ride over the bump without incident. I found out yesterday on a 5 1/2 hour road trip that if I did 80 to 90 miles per hour and powered through every road blemish, the truck rode fine...no shaking at all. I suppose the high speed forces the tires to stay straight when they hit a bump. Lastly, to confuse my problem solving attempts further, sometimes the truck rides like a cadillac (for an hour or so) at regular speeds and no matter what bumps I hit. Then without worning, the front end will loosen up and get that sloppy feeling again and the wobbling comes back at every bump...until the next time it feels like tightening up and driving right again. I have no idea what to do now. I'm going back to Sears today to have them check their alignment. Other than that, all I can think of is to change the rest of the steering components and check the steering box for malfunction. I hope someone can help all of us Dodge owners out off of the road tested info that I've just provided. Dodge doesn't seem to care to address the problems with their trucks front ends, and we need a solution before people get hurt or die. I was almost run over by an 18-wheeler trying to figure out how to handle the shake. I can't afford to buy another truck. So I need to fix this one so I can keep working. If anybody has a concrete solution to these problems, please let us know. I've read 20 different opinions from mechanics on these blogs, but nobody has said yet that they fixed someone's truck with these problems and have since heard from that customer and everything is still working fine. Opinions are helpful sometimes, but they're also confusing when they're conflicting.

1999 alero the front end makes noise like the wheel bearing or


if its clicking when you turn the wheal, then its a cv joint. If its making a bump bump bump noise as you go down the road and increases with speed and slows with speed then its probably a bering, It sounds like you have hit something and caused your ball joints to damage. take a board 2x4 about 2 foot long. jack up the car in the front, just enough to fit the board under the tires. At each tire lift the board and see if you have any movement in the wheal. The movement you are looking for will be up and down, not side to side. Your steering moves side to side. Your ball joints give you limited up and down rotation movement to allow your car to handle bumps. If its in access of an inch rotation then there is your problem. Depending on the car, I would probably look at salvage yards first then go to the part store and compare prices. Because some junk yards are chaging near new prices for used stuff. Also your struts may be shot also.
