Question about 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

I am always replacing front tires due to alignment issue. i get the alignment done - then a month later the front end bounces at 60-65 mph. Now I find this week that my back tire is leaning inward at a serious angle! I haven't driven over anything. What's going on here?

It sure sounds to me that the gentleman or lady in charge of aligning your vehicle wasn't doin the job properly.The entire vehicle's suspension needs to be checked for visible damage or worn out parts before the alignment.Had this been done then they would have seen why the back tire is leaning in like it is.I suggest that you take the vehicle elsewhere.....just for your safety alone.You do not want to be driving a vehicle whose suspension may fail at any time and put you in harms way....HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

I have a Mitsubishi Mirage de, and from around 30 mph until 45 mph, the front end shakes so bad that it makes the Intire car shake bad. Any suggestions?

Some one didn't do a very good alignment. If it was done recently, you may won't to take it back. Unless you been hitting some major pot holes. Vibration that comes and goes like that is usually tire balance. Might want to have the suspension checked. But they should have done that before the alignment. You can't align a vehicle if it has bad tie rods, ball joints or struts.

Low frequency vibration occuring at 40 mph to 50-65 mph, had tires rotated and balanced, replaced front wheel bearings, pinion seal was replaced several months ago

have the tires themselves checked, it sounds like you have a tread coming lose , also, have you had the front end aligned

My front tires bounce went I drive between 70 mph & 75 mph, I have had my tires spin balanced ,& I have put new shocks on the front ,but I still experience tire bouncing

If they have been spin balanced properly, then the wheels and/or tires are out of round or you have a bent rim. The right way to check this is to use a dial indicator and measure the runout of the tire and the rim. A good tire shop should have the equipment to measure this. There is always some radial runout (difference in distance between the center of rotation and the outer surface, both on the tire and on the wheel). When the tires are mounted on the rims, If the high spots of the tires happen to be aligned with the high spots of the rims, this makes the total runout worse. If the high spots of the tires are aligned with the low spots of the rims, the total runout is better. There is a limit on how much runout is acceptable to give a smooth ride. The tire shop should also measure lateral runout, which is the side-to-side variation in the wheel as it spins, or "wobble". If excessive, this would be a sign of a bent rim. Also, with the vehicle jacked up so the weight is off the wheels, you should check for any looseness in the suspension and bearings, which can also cause vibration.

When I am going about 60 miles per hour the car doesn't run smooth, feels shakey. My tires were replaced in the front about 6 months ago.

if its just at that speed, have the tires balanced again, and get a front end alignment ,, a single bump on a curb can knock it out of alignment

relace your shocks. the design of any dampner(strut or shock design) is to return the wheel to the road for handling and safety. when the shock is worn out is with continue to bounce like a basketball. it has no more strength to return to wheel to the road. a common misconception is that they are there to absorb, not true. the springs or torsion bars are there to absorb and create ride height. the shock does nothing more then return the wheel to the road. simple and inexpensive.

Front end and steering wheel shakes

Most common problem would be tires are out a balance. Or, the tires are out of round ( meaning the tires have a hop to it; not completely round ).

Vibration from 45-60 michlin tires ,aligned and balanced

have the steering rack checked for excess play, also have all the front end bushing checked, this is a common cause of this type of problem, it is the front end that is doing it, finding the worn part(s) is the job that needs to be done to correct this.
