Could be a warn out bushing in the front end.. Tie-rod - etc..
Could be a ball joint..
Jack up the front end safely - maybe one side at a time.. Have the wheel hanging free..
Move the wheel left to right and look for play in the front end or ball joint,, or even a bearing..

Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)

Then something has to be seriously bent, or loose, or whoever is balancing your wheels doesn't have a clue what they're doing. Try a different shop. This shouldn't be a hard one for them to figure out, but not much we can do.

My 2004 gmc savanna 3500 shakes from the steering wheel after going 60mph


I'm guesing you have had your tires balanced and wheels aligned. If this does not help, then you have a broken belt in one of your front tires.

Steering wheel shakes on highway and the front end


Has it been wrecked. If not could be the tires or could be that you have lost a weight on the rims. Have tire balanced or replace it the tires are bad or the alignment is out. Most of the times its the tires or weights have fell off the rim.

When i go over 55mph my front end trembles so bad it can be felt on the steering wheel


There are multiple reasons the front end could be shaking.

1. Tires are out of balance or one has become separated causing a knot.

2. One of the front bearings is going out.

3. One of the 2 front cv drive shafts are wearing out or bent.

4. Inner and Outer Tie rod ends needing replaced

Above are the 4 main causes of vibration in the front end being able to be felt in the steering wheel. i would first take the vehicle to the tire shop and have them check the balance on all 4 wheels. Also, while they have the wheels off, ask them nicely if they could check out the front end for you.

I would check your front tires for any defects if there is none noticeable I would get a front end alignment. Most of the time you can tell if you need a alignment if your car pulls to either the right or left while driving. Hope this helps.

04 Nissan Quest Shaking while driving


Put on the spare tire and see if that helps. If it does, go to the tire store and use your hazard coverage for them to check your rim for being bent or your tire from having a bruised belt. The rim is your responsibility, the tire is the tire stores. An 04 should have spare rims in Salvage yards. You can go online for those if need be.
