Warped brake rotor(s) if pedal pulsates as well. Did this just happen suddenly? No vibration while driving, just braking?

SOURCE: shaking/vibration in front end & steering wheel

Nor sure about the 2001 model, but on the 97 model, the track bar bolts to the frame on the driver's side. The bolts work loose. Dont merely look at it, go ahead and tighten them. There are two bolts facing upward, at the end lf the track bar. Then there are 3 nuts behind the driver's side front wheel that need to be tight. You dont have to take the wheel off so see them. I tightened all of mine and the death wobble nearly went away ....( 90%)....then I replaced the steering stabilizer ( damper). Hope your 2001 is just as easy !

SOURCE: front end shakes when accelerating

The desciption you gave is exactly how it feels when you have an axle with a bad inner CV joint. It won't make a "clicking" noise like when you have a bad outer CV joint, but will shake pretty bad on accel. If you crawl under the car while it's on the ground (don't lift it) and grab on to the axle close to the inner CV joint and wiggle it, there shouldn't be very much play in it. If there is play in it, replace that axle.

Yes, that rod isn't bad to do, You'll need a ball-joint removal fork for the ball-joint. But after that removing the bolt, releasing the other end is a piece of cake. You will want a friend around for installing the new one. he or she will turn the steering wheel so you can insert the new ball-joint into the frame.

The actual disc rotors have warped with heat (eg, driving with foot lightly on brake pedal). Easy fix, take it to a brake shop and get them to true the rotors. In New Zealand, we have guys that come to you to do it but essentially, they use a lathe and trim disc provided it doesn't go below manufacturers specs for thickness.

You have to make somebody to check the struts, or shocks, and also the axles, this situation is very dangerous because if the problem are the terminals or the axles, they can be broke while driving and you will lost control of the steering wheel... completely. I mean, no steering wheel working, on a car running...

My front end shakes and has a grinding noise


Need more detail please. What year, make, and model of car are you referring to? Does the front end only shake when the car is moving? Is it only above a certain speed? Do you feel the shake in the steering wheel or only in the car? Is the grinding noise all the time, only when turning, only when braking, etc.?

The more detail you can provide, the better chance you'll have of getting a decent answer.

2005 jeep cherokee front end pulsating


Please have this checked out as soon as possible. Either you, a Mechanic, or an alignment shop, need to check out the front-end and all four points. Something has changed, broke, or is loose and worn out. Check: Ball-joints, wheel bearings, tie-rods, rims, lug-nuts, tires, tire balance, tire inflation, tire tread wear, alignment, U-joints, shocks, and suspension. Let me know if I can be anymore help, good luck.

92 chevy c1500 shakes when braking or hits a bump


Thats called a shimmy. And you have shocks instead of struts.
Chances are you have a ball joint or tie rod end about to fail. Something is very loose in the front steering or suspension. I'd put money on it being a ball joint.

FRT END SHAKES AT ALL SPEEDS


If steering wheel shakes bad tire on front. If whole car shakes bad tire on rear. Or tires could be out of balance. If steering wheel shakes when brakes applied, front rotors are warped.
