SOURCE: My Silverado front end wobbles at any speed, not affected braking

Couple of checks , mud in front rims will give you a wobble. Front tire cord seperation or loose wheel nuts. , Wore out tie rod end, front wheel bearing play, or a weight has fallen off the rim and it needs balancing. If it is vibrating your steering wheel, have the front end looked at right away.

Could just be your tires need to be balanced. When was the last time you had them balanced and rotated?

SOURCE: Front end wobble in 1999 Chrysler Intrepid.

Take the car back to where you had the brakes checked, and tell them since then there is a front end wobble. Something doesn't smell right.

Why does the 4WD in part time wheel hop when turning but in full time 4WD doesnt do it on a jeep grand cherokee with select track & what is up with that death wobble


Hop when turning generally is caused by a bad (binding)axle joint on the wheel end.
Death wobble is most often traced to worn ball joints but can also be caused by worn tires, excessive play in any of the attachment arm bushings in the front end, worn (oblong) suspension to frame mount holes, or a steering box tearing away from the chassis. Sometimes it is a combination of excessive play in more than one item working together. Careful diagnosis (hands-on examination) is the only way to find and correct it.
Most often the steering stabilizer (sideways shock on steering linkage) is blamed for wobble but in reality it can be damaged by the wobble but nearly never causes it.

AT 120KM HR MILD WHEEL SHIMMY AND ALSO FRONT END WOBBLE. HAVE BALANCED AND ROTATED TIRES AND THE FRONT END IS TIGHT. WOBBLE AND SHIMMY IS STILL THERE WITH THE WINTER TIRES ON.


I had the same problem; I had to replace the steering stabilizer and the track bar. There is a technician's service bulletin out about this problem; happens alot with Jeeps. Use aftermarket parts. It's called the "Death Wobble" and you can lose control of the vehicle very easily.

Front end wobble at 50 mph or when I hit a bump or pot hole in my 2005 Wrangler


Your tie rod nut needs tightning, the extra play causes the front end to vibrate or wobble your vehicle and sterring wheel.

look under the car where your steering wheel gear box connects to the tie rod, see if the nut and carter key have slop in it.

if so, take the carter key out and tighten the nut and then replace the carter key as it was.

the test it on some bumps and potholes.

2007 jeep wrangler shakes uncontrollaby after


When you say shakes i am guessing the steering wheel. If it is the steering wheel shaking, it's know as the death wobble. Check the front steering components, look for worn or broken parts. Most common for death wobble are the tie rod ends, idler arm and pitmen arm. look for play along the track bars and check the ball joints. The other thing too that will cause a death wobble is a bad alignment. there may be negative or no caster at all which would give you a death wobble. Check all of the above and keep me posted. Good luck and be safe

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.
