Should look at replacing the CV joints, only good for 95,000 to 120,000.

Gmc Suburban random brake fade on abs system when brake pedal at end of 'travel' and vehicle almost stopped, brakes shudder and become mushy with poor braking power.


You Have A Bad Wheel Bearing. Inside the wheel bearing is a speed sensor, The Only Good Way To Change the speed sensor, Is To change the wheel bearing, Because , more than likely , the bearing is failing also. Good Luck

Whats makes the front end shake if you have replaced the brakes, roders, caliperes, and everything else that has to do with the brakes


Front end vibration has little to do with the brake system on the car. Yes you can get some "brake shudder" when you apply the brakes when you have worn brake rotors or when the rotors are not properly aligned on the hubs. However from what you have said you do not have this problem.

Front end vibrations can be caused by a number of factors some of which are listed below:



1. Front wheels out of balance. (Common problem on many vehicles).

When were the front wheels last balanced? You will get vibrations through the car and the steering wheel at particular speeds. This will/could also occur if the wheel rims have been distorted as a result of abuse.

As a first step the wheels should be balanced and then retest the vehicle for the problem.

It can be impossible to properly balance some wheels because the tires fitted to the rims are of poor quality and contain heavy spots that are impossible to correct with wheel balance weights. If you have cheap tires fitted on the wheel rims then it may be impossible to balance the wheels properly because of the imperfections in the tyre. In that case you will have a permanent wheel vibration problem which will only be rectified by fitting good quality tires and re-balancing the front wheels.

If aftermarket wheel rims have been fitted to the vehicle this can also be a source of vibration. Some wheels on the market are poor quality and can be slightly out of round and/or have heavy spots in them which can be impossible to correct when you fit the tires and have the wheels balanced. Many people think a cheap set of "blingy" aftermarket wheels are a great buy but if they are poorly built (as is often the case) you will usually have no end of problems.

2. The front wheel alignment could be out.
If the front wheels have not been aligned in the past 12 months they probably will be out of alignment. When you have re-balanced the front wheels you should have the front wheel alignment checked and then re-aligned if it is out. However if their are worn suspension components (see 4) found on the car which need to be replaced, this repair needs to be done before the front wheels are re-aligned.

3. Worn out wheel bearings in the front hubs.
If your front wheel bearings are badly worn you can get a vibration through the steering wheel. If the vehicle has done about 100000 miles or more on the front wheel bearings they should be replaced. In any event , any competent mechanic can jack up the front of the car and check for excess play in the wheel bearings.

4. Worn out suspension components. The front end of the car should be checked for badly worn suspension and steering components.

I would recommend you take the vehicle to a competent mechanic or a suspension specialist in your area and have them check the vehicle for you.

I hope this helps.

Bad shuddering through steering wheel and break pedal when breaking at speed on a hyundia excel 1998


firstly, your tyres may be out of balance, go to your local tyre shop and get them rebalanced .... if this doesn't solve your problem check your front wheel bearings .......... a: Make sure car is in P with handbrake on b: jack up on of your front wheels only about 1 inch off the ground c: grab hold of the top of the wheel with one hand and the bottom with the other and apply pressure simultaneously from each hand , taking notice of any excessive movement This will indicate if your bearing is loose , if it is loose then it will require repacking with grease and re tightening . Hope this helps Jason

My 2000 Bonnieville shakes between 45& 55 mph I have new tires balanced and rotated not the ball joints


Check for a damaged wheel rim- the wheel balancer should have detected this, but may have missed it.
Check for defective tyre- new tyres can have faults -rotate wheel while jacked off ground, look for bulges, lumps or tyre runout when rotated.
Check for looseness of tie rods and steering box etc.
Check wheel bearings are ok.
