Several items can contribute to the shaking of the front end. Bad tires, any slack in the hubs, a bad CV joint, worn tie rods, ball joints. I would first check out the tires and then proceed to searching for components that have worn and have slack in them. Replace as necessary.

What would cause the streing wheel to shake real bad and the front left wheel feels like it's going to come off? it don't sound like the berings,cause the faster i drive the worst it gets? i know i...


Absolutely. The longer you drive it that way , it will tear other parts of the steering and suspension up. The parts are not made to take that kind of abuse.

Front end vibration


We're on our second Sedona and have had this problem on both. In our case it was the front brake rotors. The dealer told me that they're not made thick enough to handle heat loads. They are super-sensitive to heating and warp easily.

With my Sedonas the pads were not retracting completely, sometimes dragging on the rotors (not enough to notice this while driving) causing them to heat even when the brakes were not being applied and causing this front end shaking in the steering wheel when braking. When it got worse, the brake pedal would vibrate too. When we would take it up the mountains the long braking periods on the downslopes would make it much worse as the rotors heated up. The dealership had them machined but the issue persisted and ended up replacing the front rotors.

Replacing rotors is not a difficult task if you're mechanically-inclined and have the right tools. I've done it on many vehicles (though not my Sedonas as they were warranty jobs) and it's usually less expensive to replace them with new ones from your parts store than to have a brake shop work on them.

Hope this helps.
