I had the same problem. It's one of your front axles.

My mechanic is excellent. I would bet my life on their work. They couldn't find any normal signs of needing to replace one of the axles. The shimmy seemed to be on the right hand side so they changed out the right axle. Didn't fix the problem.
Everything pointed to an axle problem, so for giggles, they changed out the left axle too. That fixed the problem.
That's my bet for you.

I have a 2000 buick lesabre and when i drive real slow the front end shakes real bad, but when speed up to about 50 it quits and will start again when i hit about 60.


OK, it sounds like you should have the tire balance checked on a spin balancer to verify roundness of the tire as it turns, visually while it's spinning, and might as well rebalance the tires. Verify that the tires are properly inflated to specs. located on the door, if so equipped. I find that new tires from Goodyear, Michelin, or Hankook have the best balancing when new and as they age. Cheaper off brand tires sometimes are not as round as the name brand tires. Good luck on this repair.

Buick lesabre starts vibrating at 45 mph and stops around 55 mph...the steering wheel does not shake much but you can feel it vibrating just the same.....had new tires put on and balanced for the 2nd...


A vibration such as you are talking about could be caused by more then one thing. First it could be caused by a broken belt in one of your tires. I could also be caused by a bent rim, a warped rotter, or a bad cv joint. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

My 2001 Buick Regal shimmies at 40 mph. Worse on hills going up or down. Got tires balanced and it still does it.


Did a mechanic tell you it needed a balance or did you decide on you own thats what you needed? were the tires out of balance? were the cv axles checked? are the tires round? is the engine running smooth? Engine mounts all good?

2000 GMC Sonoma Vibrates at 25 and 45 mph


Generally, the tire vibration only arrives at 60ish.
However, if you have a distorted tire, or worse, more than one, or even worse, Buckled Wheels!
You are inevitably going to experience vibrations, at varying speeds.
Take the wheels off, and make sure, the wheels are actually still,, er, circular.
It's best to put them on a Balancing Machine, then you can see how bad they are.
If the problem isn't solved soon, you may well be finding yourself, forking out for new wheel bearings.
That should do it.
Happy motoring.
Oh, & Don't forget to rate:))
