It is common for the front sway bar links to wear out. This can cause a sense of looseness, with a slight rattle in the suspension when going over bumps, or when making turns. They cost about $60 a pair at auto supply stores, and can be changed in about 1 hour. There was also a GM technical service bullitin on this vehicle in regards to the steering column which is also a possibility, as well as one regarding loud knocking sounds related to the front strut spring cups.

Do you mean the tilt steering part of the steering wheel , or the wheels themselves are not recovering from going over bumps, like they are out of control ?
May have a bad tie rod, or strut.

After hitting a bump my abs and tc lights came on in my 2005 equinox. They went of when i started the car again then came on after going over a speed bump


Hello.
The ABS, ( anti-lock break system ) has a sensor on each wheel that can come lose after hitting dips and speed bumps. If you are mecahanical you may be able to fix it yourself, if not, any auto shop can fix it in just a couple of minutes.

I'm not real sure about the tc, ( traction control ) system, sorry.

2005 equinox devolped a clunking noise in front end when driving along and turning corners. Could it be strutts or shocks. Has 44,000 miles on it.


Not likely more common for sway bar links. The upper and lower portion of the links become loose and cause a clunking noise turning or over bumps. They are also known for the lower intermediate steering shaft. This is more common and noticeable just turning especially in parking lot maneuvers (not going over bumps).

My 2005 chevy silverado 1500 hd 4x4. I am experiencing a slight but annoying wobble in the front end at slow speed. The steering wheel is rock steady but the shaking can be felt through the steering wheel....


Chevy is having problems with the steering columns on these models. Feels like a jiggle in the steering wheel when you hit a bump of any kind. Cost about $75 at the dealer for a new part.

Car shakes every time when appling brakes


The rotors are warped, need to replace them, also when the wheeles are put back on, the lug nuts need to be tourqued down to the specifications for that car, or the new rotors will warp again.

Front end rattle


It's a loose steering column. Remove the black plastic shield under the steering wheel. Lossen the bolt that holds the two shafts together, slide them together as far as they'll go, and re-tighten the bolt. It's that simple... to stop that annoying rattle.
