Sounds to me like a prop-shaft UJ. Quite common.

Hi:
If your tires are good, the next likely suspect are the universal joints on your drive shaft. They tend to cause rumbles and vibration that varies with speed.

Fixing vibration at hwy speeds,its not the balance. starts at b50 and gets worse,feel it in steering wheel and seat


Check for worn tie rod ends, worn rubber parts on all suspension parts. Recheck tire balance too. I had to go back to my tire shop to get them re-balanced twice before they got it right.

Vibration in front end of Chevy Trailblazer 4x4


Does the shake match tire rotation or drive shaft rotation speed? If it's at tire rotation speed,have the new tires been dynamically balanced on a brand name motorized balancer?Re balance them that way.If a wheel weight has come off you will have a shake.You can also rotate the tires from front to back and see if that helps.Also,brake rotors can be out of balance and even with a perfectly balanced tire,the rotor can throw the balance off.

Vibration in front end axles look good tried new tires still there


If you jack up 1 wheel off the ground and put the car in gear , you can watch the tire spin. You might see a bent rim. The shop that mounted the tires should have seen it and warned you though.

Car vibrates above 40 MPH


your wheels more than likely needs to be balanced one or more are out of round if you had the tires rotated before the alignment this would make the vibrating more noticible.but balancing should solve your problem.

2000 Chrysler Cirrus vibrates really bad at speeds under 40 km/h. Vibration still there at higher speed but not as bad. Steering and alignment don't appear to be affected. Any ideas?


Check the ball joints and tie rod ends and Tire balance. Could have broken/slpped bet in a tire or whaeel migh have thrown a balance weight.

Vibation in the front tires, tires are balanced


if you have had the tires recently check for balance ,on a SPIN balancer,that would eliminate a belt wheel,because you would see that on a spin balancer, and tire balance.But don't forget to check tire pressure too.
find a place where traffic won't run over you and from a dead start get your speed up to 5mph,then 10mph,then 15 mph,then 20mph,
what you are looking for here is the steering wheel to start rocking back and fourth that would tell you a tire steel belt has shifted or separated.
but if your **** is what rocks back and fourth then its a back wheel or tire causing it.if no rocking appears then you need to check for loose steering parts,the passenger side ball joint first.

ON 05 FORD ESCAPE...SOME SHIMMY/VIBRATION WHEN TAKING OFF (AT 30-40 KM/HR AND WORSE ON UPHILL) BUT DISAPPEARS WHEN SPEED INCREASES...I CAN FEEL IT ON THE CENTER CONSOLE, DRIVER AND FRONT PASSENGER...


Try balanceing the tires sounds like you lost a wheel weight, after it's been balanced ask a tire man to see if you have a tire seperated, you will see dimples in the side wall if that has happened and is a common problem and should be under warrenty.
