Tou need to put it in the shop for diagnosis. You most likely have bad ball joints and bushings. You also may have a bad steering box.

Make sure everything in the front end is tight, and get an alignment.

What effect on braking does abs trouble cause


Hello Sharla,
Abs problems will only show up when the tires are slipping when the brakes are applied such as on ice or rainwater on the road and will often sound like a crunching sound inside the vehicle as the abs system pulse the braking system. There is no other symptoms when the tires are not slipping. If your vehicle is not stopping otherwise then you will need to have the brakes serviced, or have new tires installed if there is not much treads left on the tires!

Good Luck!

How do you rewhy is my brakes locking down while driving?how do i rest the abs system?


You have water in the brake system, it boils and applies the brakes.
Different size tires will set a trouble code, but not apply brakes.

Steering shakes at low and high speeds and pulls to the right


If it only does it when you are using the brakes, I would check the brakes on both sides.
If it does it without using the brakes, I would look for a bad tire on the front. One of the tires could have a broken belt inside the tread.
Could also be a bad wheel bearing on the front.

I just installed a set of the new Michelin Defender tires on my 2007 Impala LT 3.5. I get a vibration that seems ot be coming from the rear tires that I feel thru the driver seat ( if you put you hand


I had the same problem with my new Defenders. Turns out I had a bad batch of tires. Not only had vibration, it caused the car to pull. I had the tires tested for roundness, and three were out of round. Additionally, two of the tires were causing what is known as radial bias pull, which made the car seem like it was out of alignment. Three alignments, four rebalances and rotations later, and with still a lot of of resistance, they replaced all four tires as defective, and the problems ALL went away. You need new tires.

98 corvette what is the proper procedure to bleeding the brakes


  1. Raise the vehicle on a suitable support.
  2. Remove all four tire and wheel assemblies.
  3. Inspect the brake system for leaks and visual damage.
  4. Inspect the battery state of charge.
  5. Install a scan tool.
  6. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. With the scan tool, establish communications with the electronic brake control module (EBCM). Select Special Functions. Select Automated Bleed from the Special Functions menu.
  7. Bleed the base brake system. Follow the scan tool directions until the desired brake pedal height is achieved.
  8. If the bleed procedure is aborted, a malfunction exists. Perform the following steps before resuming the bleed procedure:
    1. If a DTC is detected, check for the cause and repair as necessary.
    2. If the brake pedal feels spongy, perform the conventional brake bleed procedure again.

  9. When the desired pedal height is achieved, press the brake pedal in order to inspect for firmness. Remove the scan tool.
  10. Install the tire and wheel assemblies. Inspect the brake fluid level.
  11. Road test the vehicle while inspecting that the pedal remains high and firm.

ABS


ABS stands for anti-lock brakes. Without going into a long explanation, when a vehicles brakes lock up, meaning the wheels are no longer rolling, a vehicile begins to slide and the driver cannot control where it slides.

To combat this, drivers were taught to pump their brakes so the tires could get some grip to the road to steer. With ABS, a computer does the pumping for you, much faster than you could ever respond, thus allowing you to steer around a hazard.

With ABS systems, in an emergency situation, you should apply the brakes firmly, and hold them, allowing the ABS to kick in. Do NOT pump the brakes, the biggest complaint from the people who investigate wrecks is that drivers tend to not apply the brakes as firmly as they need to.

You can probably google anti lock brakes systems and get some very good explanations woth more details.

What about rear brakes, have those been checked out? sometimes even a drum can warp, it could also be an imbalaced tire, maybe even an untrue rim. normally bouncing comes from an imbalance somewhere.
