Yes but prob a ball joint or a tie rod end is more likley the problem. check them with a large screw driver to see if you get movment that seems loose rather than a tight movment. be carfull to not damage the rubber boots. a good ball joint will have a tight feel to it. a bad one will feel loose.

Not likely, this kind of problem is almost always caused by wheels that are out of balance. Have the front wheels rebalanced at any tire shop.

When I am driving and get to about 30 MPH the whole front end of my car begins to shake. The dash board and, steering wheel. It will becomes less noticable when I get to 55 MPH. And now when I slow down...


Hello, There are a lot of moving parts in the front end. You may have a bad CV joint which is on the shaft that turns the front wheels. Each side has a similar part. There are also hub bearings which are in the hub and the hub is turned by the CV joint shaft.

The CV joint can break without tearing the rubber cover on the shaft, but if someone looks under the car at the CV shaft and sees oil or grease or a torn rubber cover on the right side CV shaft; it will confirm the diagnosis.

Once this part breaks the car will not move anymore. A broken CV joint can cause other parts to fail like the hub bearings. You can call around and price the repair or if you know someone who can do the work, price the parts.

If the shaft needs to be removed, it is behind several parts which will need to be removed first.

My 2002 chevy impala shakes whem i accelerate the gas between 40-60 mph. I changed the tires and 2 motor mounts but it still shakes


When you changed your tires were the wheels inspected to make sure they weren't bent. If on of your wheels is bent even just a little it could cause your shake. You could try rotating the front ones to the back and see if it makes a difference. I would inspect your wheel bearings and front CV axles and joints. If one of those it bad it will cause your shake.

Severe vibration in front end at 60 mph. steering wheel also vibrates even at lower mph.


If it's front wheel drive the "C.V. Joints". The Constant Velosity Joints connect the front wheels to the drive shafts (R & L). Call around to front end alignment shops for quote about $175 to $225 +$130 if four wheel drive, more labor. Listen if is is noiser (clicking) in turns, than driving straight, if so CV's are bad.
