SOURCE: 03 Trailblazer Front End Noise/Vibration

I had similar problem with my 03 trailblazer. It had a low dull hum in the front end with a little vibration being felt in gas pedal. Noise increased over a couple weeks and was louder turning to the left and quiter turning to right. A GM mechanic friend of mine replaced the front right hub and took care of the problem. Hub was about $160 at Autozone.

SOURCE: steering wheel and gas pedal vibrate at abot 35

I don't want to imply you don't have your brakes serviced or your shop is less than competent--But,unless a wheel weight fell off,or you have a really bad CV Joint causing this vibration,along with bad motor mounts,yes you can have a combination of worn items. Then I will bet on the fact that at least 50% of your problem,is worn brake rotors,rusted pad slides,rusted caliper mounting bracket and no one ever lubed a thing during any brake work. So pads grabbing rotors and you got brake chatter. Please don't be offended,but in my world that could have been prevented with semi-annual brake service.

My 2003 buick lesabre will start to vibrate when you get up t 45 mph and will get worse if you give it gas but will stop vibrating if you let off the gas


Sounds like a motor mount or trans mount, maybe a axle shaft worn out.To check the motor mount and trans mount start the car raise the hood have someone stand by the side of the front end put the car in drive with your foot on the brake use the other foot and press the gas pedal a little bit and see if the motor raises up on one side or the other.

I have a 2006 chev 2500 HD. The steering wheel and 4x4 shifter shake very bad at 50mph. It has had a new transfer case put in, driveshaft balanced and all four tires checked. The vibration goes away if you...


u need to check rear end with the drive shaft removed vibration goes away would lead me to believe you have bad bearings in the rear end more than likely the pinion bearing
pull cover off (while fluid draining check to see if there a lot of metal in oil )
if you do see metal in fluid or laying in rear end you need rear end rebuilt or replaced
i wouldn't recommend doing the rebuild your self because with out the special tools and knowleage u can make matters worse
