SOURCE: i hit a bump on

Sounds like your left front wheel bearing is going bad. When you make a right turn, or compress the right front suspension over a bump, it forces the car to roll to the left. This loads the suspension on the left side, which will exaggerate a wheel bearing problem. Are you hearing the noise at all when travelling on the highway in a straight line? If so, it'd be either a grinding sound or a hollow humming noise. If you aren't, it may be that the bearing is just starting to go bad.

A quick test to see if the bearing is bad is to jack the car up at that corner, grab the wheel at the top and bottom, and shake it hard - if there is any movement or looseness, your bearing is shot. If there is none, it doesn't mean the bearing is fine, but it could be that it's just starting to go bad (which would be why you only hear it in turns and bumps, but not straight-line yet).

I had this exact same problem and the cable was broken. There is a way to get it open by going through the wheel well. Let me know if this is still an issue for you and I can walk you through it. Thanks!

SOURCE: steering wheel shimmy at highway speeds

This sounds like tie rod ends are going out. Before you remove the old ones, mark on the threads where it currently is seated or you will throw it out of alingment when you put new ones on. You may need to borrow or buy the tool for poping out the tie rod end. They aren't a big deal to change if you have some basic tools and sometimes you don't need the wedge tool either. Once you get the old one out, try moving it around. If it is real loose and moves easily, thats your problem. But the swaying you are describing sound like this is the problem. Could be you steering control arms as well but because the inside of the tires are worn I doubt it.

Any ideas why a 2003 chevy trailblazer may vibrate in the front but stops when you turn left


Does the vehicle make any noises while driving? If there is a "growling or roaring " noise associated with the vibration, check the right front hub bearing. If there are no noises and only vibration, check the right front upper ball joint and control arm bushings. The Trailblazer's upper ball joint and control arm bushings become worn and cause the tire and wheel assembly to shimmy while driving. The vibration stops when turning left because of weight transfer to the right side which keeps the wheel steady for a moment. Also, check the tire for irregular wear.

Ive got a 06 grand caravan that shimmies and pulls hard to the right. Any guesses as to what might be the cause. Broken axel?tie rod bushing ?


There are a number of different things that could cause that problem, a bad tire, a lower or upper control are bushing, a worn out inner or outer tire rod end l, a bad wheel bering. To figure out exactly where the problem is you need to visually and physically inspect each side of the suspension by having someone move the steering wheel back and forth while you observe both sides from underneath the front of the vehicle. From there you should be able to see what is moving when it shouldn't be or not moving when it should. Also inspect your brake rotors. You may simply need new rotors and brake pads.

2002 toytota camry left front makes noise turning right


This is usually a bad bearing. The tire is tilting to one side and causing uneven wear. The shimmy is because of the slack in the bearing and the contact the front rotor is having with the brake pad. Every time the low side comes around the rotor will hit the brake pad and grab it.

You will need bearings and brake work.

Passenger Front Tire wobbles


Bad bearings, or another worn suspension part. I'd have it checked by an alignment specialist.

Front end problems


hard to say what is the symptoms front end shaking or shimmying could be a tire out of balance, bad tire(broken belt, goose egg on the tire). is the tires screaming could be alignment problems. is it pulling to one side or the other could be a hanging break caliper (pulls to side caliper is hanging on) alignment problem (bent or broken tie rod ends) car shakes or shimmy when brakes are applied usually is a bad or warped rotor. the possibility is endless.
