Pulling


Possibly a under inflated tire or a wheel balance weight got knocked off. A wheel alignment shop could repair this for under $100. If tires are balanced try tire rotation by putting the rear wheels on the front and front wheels on the rear. If it pulls to one side during breaking it could be worn out brakes or a leaking brake caliper. check inside of tire sidewalls for brake fluid streaks in the inner sidewall

2008 toyota sequoia steering wheel shaking


Try rotating both front wheels to the back one at a time. If a tire has a bad belt; it may balanced but balancing does not eliminate a soft spot on the tire tread. By moving the tires to the back and road testing it after each side is done, you may be able to find the bad tire.

You have a lot of moving parts. A brake rotor could be out of balance, you can have a worn CV joint shaft, a hub bearing could be worn, driveshafts and U-joints can shake.

If you do find one wheel as a problem, have the tire dismounted and the wheel spun on the machine. You may have a bent rim and the tire may be good. Since the balance would help compensate for the vibration, it can mask the flattened spot on the rim. The tire will act like a shock absorber but ultimately the rim is not turning like it is round once weight is on it.

I would be interested in what you found.

Noise from rear of 2001 Hyundai accent.


Take it to a different tire store, and ask them to look for a separated belt or an out-of-round tire. The store that balance your tires should have caught that. A bent wheel is another possibility

Or: On a lift, slowly rotate the tire, standing 6-8 feet behind the car and watch the edges of the tread -- see if they "wobble" from side to side. That's a bad tire.

Or: Rotate tires front to back and see if the problem shows up in the steering wheel.

Strong front end vibration at speeds over 60 mph. Shocks, ball joints have been replaced and wheels aligned and balanced. Took it to a tire repair shop and they couldn't find problem. Any ideas on...


You need to have someone look at it that is experienced in NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness). Front end vibrations can be caused by many things. Each possibility needs to be systematically eliminated to find the cause. Someone who is experienced in this can eliminate several possibilities by simply driving the vehicle...Did the tire shop even bother to road test it? I'll bet not!

Sometimes INTERNAL tire problems can cause a vibration that cannot be found (or eliminated as a possibility) by putting the tires on a balance machine. To eliminate this as a possibility, rotate the tires front-to-rear one side at a time then drive the vehicle to see if the vibration changes or "moves". If it does, then the tire that just got rotated to the rear is the problem.

Also, the vehicle can be run on a lift to see if the vibration can be duplicated in the shop. Many times, if the vibration is being caused by a drive axle or CV joint, it can be located by running the vehicle on a lift this way. In the case of 4-wheel drive vehicles, it will be necessary to engage the front axles to get them spinning on the lift.

The entire steering and suspension system should be checked for looseness in the tie rods, stabilizer links and frame bushings, control arm bushings, etc. Any looseness in any of these parts can cause vibrations at certain speeds.

I have also seen vibrations that act similar to a tire being out of balance that occurs when the brake rotors loose a balancing weight on some vehicles. This may or may not apply to your vehicle, (yours may not have balance weights in the rotors) but this type of vibration can usually also be verified by running the vehicle on a lift.

Welcome to fixYa !

you might have the rear bush problem cause it handle the cars smoothly, ... moreover check the rims sometimes RIMS get curvy or erected( i dont have the word for it right now , meaning = bends) by jumps or bumps( or even if you cross a speed-breaker in high speed) that causes wobbling .. more over check for EXCELS. sometimes EXCELS cause these problem .

do write back for your problem is solved or did it remain unsolved !!

we are here to help you .!
best Regards

There are several places to look. If it is a lower pitch vibration, look into front wheel bearings and rear axle bearings. A bad u-joint will produce a higher pitched vibration and may lessen as you lift the throttle. They also will give a hi-low squeak when backing up.
