If you can absolutely verify that there are no loose components in the front end I would start looking at the tire for belt separation. This can be detected by rubbing your hand gently over the tread area. Feel for bumps,bulges, and irregularities. It should be fairly obvious.

You can also try putting the tire on a different location and see if the symptom moves to the new location.

I'm guesing you have had your tires balanced and wheels aligned. If this does not help, then you have a broken belt in one of your front tires.

This usually means worn steering parts. These vehicles are known for pitman arm and idler arm wear issues. Best to take it to an alighnment shop for an assessment.

My 94 Silverado pulls very hard to the right, and is eating up my front left tire like nothing. what other than alignment can be going wrong?


You could have a bad tie rod end, Idler arm, pitman arm, wheel bearing or ball joint. All of these will normally cause a vibration also. Check by jacking the front end one side at a time and moving the tire back and forth on front and back and in and out on top and bottom. Either watch or have someone else watch the steering assembly for movement and where it is. If there is no unusual movement, it is more than likely an alignment problem or tire problem.

Front end shakes at 65 to 75pmh


I would have front tires checked for balance at any tire shop. If okay inspect tie rod ends, idler arm, and pitman arm, as I see these part go bad most often on these vehicles. It sounds like you have a tire balance problem.

When braking between 80-60 kph the steer is


You could have a worn idler arm and pitman arm. The idler arm is more common to wear out before the pitman arm so start with that and have the front end aligned. Inspect all your front end steering components for damaged and worn out parts that need to be replaced.

Could be a number of things from ball joints to your pitman arm(arm that steers the tires). It dont sound like tire are way out of balance because yu said it only starts when you hit a bump. If it was me, Id crawl under the front end and start shaking different parts until I figured out what was loose. if its shaking that bad you should definitly be able to tell when you shake it.
