Have your brake rotors examined. Chances are that one or more of them are warped and in need of replacement. Any brake shop will be able to assist you.

I have a 2007 Pontiac Torrent FWD with a violent low speed vibration. we have replaced the lower control arm assembly and the hub bearings along with the brake pads and rotors.


Struts would not cause vibration problems, A CV joint could, turn your vehicle in a parking lot hard right, make a circle than turn left make a circle ,if you hear a noises you have a cv joint problem. If you feel vibration on the steering wheel its in the front, if you feel it in the seat its in the rear.
Tires out of round & Balance very common as well brake rotors cause vibrations.

How do you know if a bad alternator is the cause of steering wheel shaking in a 2005 Chrysler Pacigica with only 149k miles?


Very unlikely a bad alternator is going to cause a steering wheel shake even if the alternator is seriously out of balance. In that case a high frequency vibration will run through almost the entire car and the alternator will soon self-destruct.

There are a few reasons why a steering wheel might shake and mostly these relate to the integrity of the front wheels and tyres, the roundness, the radial and axial run-out, the balance and the compatibility with each other and the vehicle. Problems with the wheels and tyres can further be aggravated by steering/suspension wear or misalignment, worn shock absorbers and even binding brakes or warped brake discs.

The rear wheels and tyres and suspension and brakes are also important for a smooth ride and could conceivably cause a steering wheel shake, though a different sort of shake to that caused by the fronts. In this case the vibration is often felt mostly through the seat of the pants and from the seat back.

Vibration at 80-100k in a 4x4 Ford 350 diesel superduty


Sounds like you need to get your tyres balanced. If the vibration is when you don't touch the brakes only between the 80-100.
If its when you touch the brake pedal and the vibration occures, your disc brakes are warped, either machining or replacement.

Steering wheel vibrates when hitting the break at high speeds. was told that the steering column knocked when I had the car inspected a few months ago, but they said it was nothing serious. I was just...


Hi, this symptom is usually caused by warped brake rotors. You can have your rotors resurfaced at any brake shop or you can just buy new ones, depending on the cost breakpoint for your vehicle.

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied


This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

I have a 230E Mercedes benz 1987 with an engine 1985 230E the car vibrates violently when stopping on (d)rive gear weak torque on the first gear.


The heavy vibration during braking sounds like it is warped disc rotors. This car has disc brakes on all wheels, so it could be one or all of them causing the problem. One way to identify whether it is the front or the rear is to observe the steering wheel while braking and feeling the vibrations. If the steering wheel is shimmying at the same frequency as the vibration, it is almost certain that it is the front. If not it is the rear. Do a visual inspection of your pads and rotors. You will probably see scoring in the rotors. It is a fairly easy do-it-yourself job with improved braking and that smooth Mercedes ride we all love.

I own a 2007 Chevy Malibu LS. Recently my brakes have been 'squealing' and my steering wheel has always vibrated when I press on the brake. I thought it was my brake pads and rotors but I just had them...


checked out replace pads /and cut rotors if pads are glazed over [film u were told ] the pads are smoothed over from getting to hot -riding brake or stop and go traffic lot of down hill braking which ever was the cause ur brakes got over heated and glazed over and are very smooth also the heat transferred to the rotors also warped them when u get steering shake when braking 90 percent of the time its warpage in rotor and the only way is to have them removed and put on a cutter to check for out of round also abs doesnt cause this abs [anti-lock braking] is designed to transmit a pulse to ur brakes when it senses a wheel is about to lock up or skid u would feel the pulse in ur brake pedal not ur steering

Whenever I brake my steering colum vibrates violently. Is this normal?


Yes the front rotors are probably warped. They would need to be re-surfaced and the pads replaced if they are worn. Also suggest having the the front suspension and steering inspected.
