Tierod could cause shake w/braking.replace tierod and do alignment, if it still shakes when braking then brake rotors are warpped.you machine rotors depending on thickness of rotor or how far off they are,if rotors are unturnable then replace.

My right front wheel shakes when I press the brakes on my 2004 Chrysler 300m Special and i just replaced the right front wheel


Have it rebalanced to check for bent rim or wheel imbalance, but check bolts and shimmy by grabbing the wheel on two sides and shake it to make sure a tierod,wheel bearing or other problem as well.

When I apply my brakes it shimmy's real bad.


if the vibration only happens when you apply the brakes then you probably have warped rotors that need replacing. however if some front end components are in very bad condition it can also cause this type of condition as the front end will vibrate due to the excess play in the components.

What causes brake shimmy C2500 1991 5.7L?


Brake shimmy is due to hot spots on the rotor or drum the metal is actually hardened in the spots causing friction differences when the brakes are applied causing front end to shimmy . If you have your rotors turned the hot spots are still present so I have always justr replaced rotors pads all at once shimmy gone .

How do i no if my front end on my 1996 jeep cherokee is bad? when i put on the brakes it shimmys, i change the roters , & clipers & pads . nothing work


The rotors, caliper, pads are brakes, and won't cause shimmy, even if the rotors are running out, you will only feel it in the brake pedal.

Shimmy is usually bad tie rods or wheel bearings, bad hub. If you changed the rotors, then you already have jacked up the car, you need to jack it up and move the tire just as if it was turning left and right, it should NOT move, if it does, its the tie rods. Now normally if it moves Lt or Rt its tie rods, if there is play pulling it directly towards you and pushing it back its bearings hub. Pushing on top and bottom face of the tire and getting play is usually the ball joint. If you can't figure out which one it is have a tech check it and tell you, then do the work yourself if you have to.

When applying the brakes, the whole car shimmys. replaced rear rotors , turned front rotors , and replaced all the pads


I think you should get the Tierod ends checked. When you get a Front-end alignment, the mechanic will check them. Although you turned the front Rotors, when you start Braking the front tires can wander differently than when they freewheel.

Sometimes you can get a rust problem on the Rotors that were just made shiny. Moisture on the pads imprints a rust blotch on the Rotor and they grab at the rust until the rust wears down. Then they are ok.

When the rear Rotors were replaced check your bill and see if the Emergency brake shoes were changed. The E brakes should have been adjusted when the Rotors were replaced. The Shimmy you describe can also be the ABS working. The ABS is a pulsating Brake action.

Get your front-end checked first, then as the mechanic road tests it when the Alignment is complete, he can judge the brakes.,

Steering wheel shimmys at speeds 35 and up just changed rotors and pads no play in new wheel bearings doesnt shimmy when i brake though. any help would help greatly thanks


If it shimmies with the brakes applied, it's a rotor problem....but like you say, it shimmies just at a certain speed with no brakes applied, check tires for out-of-roundness. If they look ok, you are looking at a balance problem with the tires.

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300 Hemi, when I am driving above 60 MPH and apply the brakes hard to slow down I get a bad shimmy in my steering. This does not seem to happen at slower speeds??? Is this a...


if you are getting a shimmy in the wheel this is a good indication that your front brake rotors are warped and upon replacement the lug nuts should be torqued to 100 ft lbs or they might warp again,also the rear brakes should be checked for correct operation to make sure all the stopping force is not left for the front brakes to handle all by themselves,hope this helps
