First thing I'd do is jack up the front right hand wheel and see if there is any free play in the bearing. See if you can wobble the wheel not just spin it. It sounds a bid sever to be a shock absorber but just make sure it is still connected properly and hasn't come undone or something.

My landcruiser has a damper (like a shock absorber) on the steering. It is horizontal behind the front bumper. When it was worn I used to get what could best be described as a shopping trolly effect now and then where the front wheels would shimmy left and right. Would scare the poop out of me. I replaced this damper and it solved the problem. Have a good look around and make sure there is no free play in any of the linkages. If you can't find the problem I'd seek professional help or you could easily run off the road and kill yourself or someone else.

Brakes and steering. Two things not to takes risks with. :)

Front end shakes

Hi Steve, It would help to know if the shaking begins at a certain speed or is it there all the time? If the shaking is transmitted via the steering and comes at a particular speed and disappears once that speed has been passed the problem is most likely with the wheels being out of balance, or you have a buckled rim. If the problem is at all speeds, have the front end checked, meaning rack ends, tie rod ends, ball joints, suspension bushes and anti roll bar bushings. Also check for damage on the sub frame and engine mountings. Regards John

Severe shaking when braking

have you ever replaced the front brake rotors ?

a qualified brake mechanic has the right tools to tell if rotors are warped

don't let em go too long or you'll be replacing a whole lot of front suspension parts as it causes everything to wear faster

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced

You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

Honda Torneo has problem of shaking at low speeds, automatic transmition car

Well, it is really hard to say without even knowing what year or which engine we are talking about. It sounds to me like either the timing belt was not installed correctly and the valve timing is off, Or if the engine was jacked up to perform the timing belt replacement, an engine mount may be damaged or mis-aligned.
There are probably many other possibilities as well. Not being able to see the vehicle and what it is doing myself, makes it very difficult to guess.

The only real suggestion I have for you is to recheck your work. If that does not turn up the problem, then I would recommend taking the vehicle by your local auto repair shop and get a trained automobile technician to take a look at it and give you an opinion.

When accelerating 60 mph my truck shakes like it's coming apart

if it does not go away over 60 and does not shake too bad at lower speeds sounds like your drive shaft is outta ballance if you do any off roading you may have bent it hitting an object or could be something like the diff joints worn or broken shaking it with your hand will tell you that (should not move)

and remember you got 4wd so you have Two drive shafts

1999 dodge caravan has started pulling to the right and steering wheel shakes but seems to lessen a bit at increased speeds?

Check for a stuck brake caliper. If one is stuck, it can cause overheat, pulling, and will warp the rotor.

Shakes, steering wheel hard to turn. RPM's at 2 when going 15mph.

Have you checked the power steering fluid? Do the belts squeel when you turn the steering wheel?
I know this might sound silly but are your air pressures in your tyres correct? Low air pressure will cause your steering to shake at speed and it will be hard to turn at low speed.
I hope this helps,

Shake/Shudder while depressing the brake.

I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were.  He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well.  If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied.  It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well.  That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly.  All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it.  Who wants to mess with safety right?  Good luck, hope this helps!
