It may be wheel bearings too. Jack up the wheel and inspect the bearing for play or dull grinding when the wheel is spinning by hand. Worn or damaged rubber parts would indicate bad rod ends or A-frame bushings may needs replacing. This is also true for excess side to side slop in the steering response. A close visual inspection listening closely and someone turning the steering wheel will help distinguish between bearing play at the center of the wheel and steering /suspension wobble. It is also not uncommon for a brake rotor to go out of balance or a strut to fail. These issues typically cause vibration/wobble/noises during braking and/or going around corners. First, be sure the rim/tire isn't damaged on the inside or that a balance weight hasn't broken off. Examine the rim for 'shadows' where weights may have been. The use of fix-a-flat and the like can also unbalance wheels seriously. Safety First! Use wheel chokes, jack stands etc properly when lifting and working under or near vehicles. Set your brake. Hope this helps.

Try to have your wheels balanced and see if that helps I find it that usually does.

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: far to much steering wheel play befor tire reaction

Loosen nut on top of steering gear box. Tighten adjustment bolt 1/4 turn at a time then tighten nut. Drive and see if it hold together better. Repeat until you can't tighten adjustment bolt any more. If it's still iffy, replace your steering gear box.

SOURCE: what causes the front end to jump and wobble

Hello Jake.
Seen this a few times in my shop.
Check the steering damper/stabilizer.
If the fluid has leaked out it will allow a kind of harmonic to take place and it won't stop until you slow right down.
The damper is like a shock absorber and it takes out that harmonic.
Undo one end of it and push/pull on it. if you feel any free play at all....replace it.
Get a good quality one as you know how important it is now.
This should cure your problem if all else is good.
Take care.

Will driveaxels cause a wobble in the front end?


it is possible that a bent shaft or failed cv joints will cause the problem
it depends if the wobble starts at a certain speed and gets worse up to a speed then stops or just gets to the point where steering control is lost
because the bearings have been replace along with tie rod ends I am tempted to consider that the axles are not the problem ( unless the repairs stated were done to fix the wobble ) but the the wheel bearing adjustment is not correct and that the fittment of the tie rod ends has altered the wheel alignment
consider a wheel alignment to correct a castor fault ( wheel wobble) and recheck the correct adjustment of the wheel bearings
if the cv joints are worn , dry ,they can be binding up and not altering angular movement easily which may appear as a wheel wobble

I have Toyota 2006 sienna and front right wheel shakes or wobbles ... I have new front tires and balanced.. but still wobbles a little...please any thoughts?


Hi Scott.
Try switching the wheels from left to right side and see if the wobble goes with it.
If not, look for a worn tie rod end or other suspension component.
If wobble goes to left side, look for bent rim.
Cheers.

Front right tire wobbles as if out of balance at speeds of 60-65 mph even after getting it balanced.


Assuming the wheel and mounted tire is balanced and the wheel is not bent would point to play in the front end suspension ball joints (control arm ,steering arm, tie rod), worn suspension bushings, or worn strut cartridges. However, some balancing is done at low revolutions rather than high speed balancing. The tire itself could have a belt that is separating in the tire that gets worse the faster it goes. Was the tire dismounted and remounted? Do you see a noticeable odd wear pattern on the tread? With the car up on a jackstand, grab the wheel at 12 and 6 o'clock and try to shake looking for play; then do the same thing at 9 and 3 o'clock. Check that all of the rods rods are tight especially near the ball joint and the bushings have not deteriorated. Loose wheel lug bolts/nuts are another cause.

My 2005 chevy silverado 1500 hd 4x4. I am experiencing a slight but annoying wobble in the front end at slow speed. The steering wheel is rock steady but the shaking can be felt through the steering wheel....


Chevy is having problems with the steering columns on these models. Feels like a jiggle in the steering wheel when you hit a bump of any kind. Cost about $75 at the dealer for a new part.

Front end wobble at 50 mph or when I hit a bump or pot hole in my 2005 Wrangler


Your tie rod nut needs tightning, the extra play causes the front end to vibrate or wobble your vehicle and sterring wheel.

look under the car where your steering wheel gear box connects to the tie rod, see if the nut and carter key have slop in it.

if so, take the carter key out and tighten the nut and then replace the carter key as it was.

the test it on some bumps and potholes.
