If you've ever used that fix a flat spray foam in your tire it can solidify in a lump causing major speed shakes as you get faster . . . seen it happen a few times if you've used that stuff buy a new tire asap before it ***** anything else up!!

Hi I am Vortash you could have one of the following problems non of which are terribly drastic .. firstly when tyres are fitted they are balanced for true spin by placing weights at measured posisitions around the wheel rim .. if one of these come off and they do due to curb or pothole impacts then the wheel will wobble at speed .. secondly you could have a worn wheel bearing or ball joint that needs replacing .. a Haynes manual would show you how to replace these quickly and efficiently .. regards Vortash

Cx-9 with 59,000 miles just serviced vibrates and shakes terribly when accelerating between 45-55 mph in gear 5 especially


It sounds like your some of your tire balance weights might have come undone, meaning you need to have your tires balanced. Or there may be a more serious problem with a tie rod end being wore out, or a ball joint or possibly wheel bearing. The wheel bearing would be accompanied by a whining, or howling. I'd steer toward a tie rod, or out of balance tire and wheel. Hope this helps!

Vibrates terribly over 65 mph


sounds like you have a wheel alignment problem. Not enough castor set. Have the front end checked out for loose worn bits. If you have a steering shocky in the system it is probably shot and not doing the job of stabilising the steering. Remember if the springs are a bit flat IE the front end is a bit low then the whole steering geometery alters and negative castor results as what you have described

At 45 miles an hours the jeeps shakes wildly why


Check for rocks stuck in tread , check for proper air pressure in tires, jack up each wheel/tire and spin it to see if tire or wheel is out of round (up and down motion) or wheel is bent (side to side motion) . Up and down could be either broken belt in the tire or a bent wheel either one. If it isn't a tire or wheel problem then you need to have a mechanic check steering linkage , ball joints, esp if they haven't been kept serviced regularly.

Feel shake in the floor and steering wheel at around 70 mph and a slight turn on the steering wheel you can feel it a little more. what parts could cause this? already had the wheel balances checked.


Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

My 03 Wrangler shakes only at 45 mph


My Death Wobble started immediately after I installed a set of Coil Spring Spacers (to lift 1.75 inches). Turned out, the DW was because while changing the height, I also lowered the CASTER angle in the front end. So, to fix it, I could have purchased a set of eccentric bolts for $50+. Instead I went out and purchased a piece of 1.5 inch flat bar for $10 from OSH. I cut out 4 1.5 inch squares. Then i drilled 7/16 inch holes centerline, but close to one side (in exactly the same place) on all for squares. I then removed the lower control arm bolts, nuts and washers. I installed these square offset washers I made so the front axle would be pushed forward (to increase the Caster angle). The toe setting changed a bit, so I reset them to about 1/8 inch toe in. After driving my Jeep, I noticed there is no more DW. The steering wheel was off center, but after 3 attempts, I have that perfectly centered. I have every intension of having the alignment checked, but not till after I find the new tires I want. If anyone is interested, I can draw out and photograph the cure and send it to you. My e-mail is bb62471(at)yahoo(dot)com.
