Question about 1988 Suzuki Samurai
My front wheels shake on my suzuki samurai somrtimes when i hit a bump in the road, it is so bad i have to stop the car
There is a problem with either the the wheel integrity, the steering linkage or all the above.
This is a dangerous and potentially life threatening situation.
As someone who has lived through a ball joint breaking off of it's connecting rod, I can tell you first hand that a steering wheel that doesn't steer is no fun at highway speeds.
Please have your vehicle looked at by a pro.
If you drive it, drive it slow, but drive it to a mechanic.

If it's a raised ride, it may result in a changed caster angle. Hitting bumps at city speeds make the wheels wobble, sometimes quite violently.
Taking some of the play out of the steering box by tightening it and adding a meatier steering dampener may help somewhat.
Best to correct the caster angle if this is out-but will take some know how and your regular garage may not want to mess with it.
Look up "death wobble" for more info.
