My 1998 Chevy Silverado shimmys under moderate

My 1998 Checy Silverado shimmys under moderate braking. To the point it will shake the steering wheel out of your hand. I had this problem before and replaced the rotors for about $200.00. Now, about six months later it is doing it again. I can't buy new rotors every six months. What is going on?

I had this same problem with a nissan titan I had. The final resolve to the problem was the stock rotors were undersized. once bigger rotors got put on the problem went away for good. I drove it 2 more years without issue.

rather than replacing them you can turn them for about $10 each. IF you do not replace brake pads they will be doing the same thing again in about 4-6 months.

all repair shops turn rotors prior to changing brake pads.

I have a problem with disc brakes, 5-6days to destroy them and the car shakes ... why?


car shakes which is called shimmy shake,if brake pads been replaced wheels still shimmy, you have worn brake rotors with low and high spots,you could have bad wheel bearing, you have worn out tie rod ends and worn out ball joints,you could have tire out of balance,also you could need front end alignment.many things will cause wheels to do the shimmy shake.

Shake and shimmy in a 1997 Silverado. They replaced the pitman arm and steering arm yesterday and 2 wheel aliignment.


Sounds like you need another shop, Most of the items that would cause your problem should be found by the shop alignment tech. Some things to check, tires: mismatched size or type, separating belts. bent, warped or unbalanced wheels, steering box play (internal slop), loose steering box from frame, congealed fix a flat in one of the tires, worn out or broken shocks, loose wheel bearings, problem could be in the rear tires and felt through the seat. if shimmy is while braking , your rotors will need surfacing or replacing. Not a lot of info was provided. 2 wheel drive or 4, big tires or stock, how quickly did problem start... Good luck

Slight shimmy while driving, but intensifies when braking


This could be caused by worn front end parts, and or unbalanced tires. to test with engine off the key in the ignition switch turned to the run position turn the wheel back and forth not enough to move the tires, if the steering wheel moves more than 2 inches then you have a problem and I can tel you how to test the front end parts to determine how to fix. If it's worse with the brakes applied then it is just amplifying the problem.
