Howdy,
Time to check the front struts to make sure the nuts holding them in place haven worked loose. You will be able to see if they are loose by the paint being wore away at the point where the struts are fastened. Top or bottom. Also grasp your tie rod ends firmly and see if there is and play there. Good hunting.

Apply the emergency brake slightly while driving to see if the rear brakes are the issue. Other wise the rotors are warped or there is debris behind the rotor to hub surface

My 2006. Lacross. Is shaking in the rt rear what is this


It can be wheel out of balance,
warped brake rotor,worn brake pads hanging up, bad bearing , worn suspension components.
does it shake at all speeds? i would jack up the wheel from ground, first test wheel for wobbling and if yes bad bearings, then take of wheel and inspect brake pads for being really thin and use straight edge ruler, check rotor for straightness, either one replace pads and rotor. inspect strut for oil leakage, ect

Tip

Steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied at highr speeds like highway...


When your steering wheel shakes at highway speeds when you apply your brakes, this is caused by warped rotors in the front.This is curable by having the rotors machined if they're thick enough or replacing them.Don't forget to install new pads or hardware also.I hope this tip helped!!!!

Why does it shake whenever i let off the gas and shakes real bad when i apply my brakes


If when applying the brakes the steering wheel shakes then your front rotors are warped and at the least need resurfaced and most likely the brake pads replaced. But more likely the rotors are too thin which has allowed them to overheat and warp which causes the shaking. In this case new rotors and pads are in order. If when braking tou feel the shaking in the seat of your pants then most likely the rear brakes are the issue. Same problem as the front, warpage, but your rear brakes are most likely drums. Again, possible resurfacing and new shoes; but more likely new drums and brake shoes.

But I wonder? Did this vibrating just start all of a sudden or maybe after a near accident requiring you to brake very heavily and possibly overheat the brakes. Or my main concern, to keep this from happening again, after pulling some type of trailer that you intend on pulling again. Pulling a trailer without its own brakes puts a much heavier load on your trucks brakes and just repairing them won't keep it from happening again if you ARE pulling a trailer. Higher quality rotors/pads/drums/ and brake shoes can help but if the trailer is too heavy for the truck nothing but installing brakes on the trailer or a lighter trailer will stop you from warping them again.

Lastly, in general when you let off the gas and the whole vehicle shakes the driveshaft/u-joints are common causes. Same with the steering wheel if it shakes when letting off the gas, but only on a 4x4 or AWD vehicle. So check your driveshafts and u-joints and make sure they are tight. But unless you find something obvious there I would wait until you have the brakes sorted out and see if that doesn't stop all the shaking.

Good luck!

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied


This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

My steering wheel shutters when I apply the brakes.


Your front brake rotors are warped. This can be caused by over-tightning the lug nuts or by high speed stops that overheat the brake rotors. You will have to remove the rotors and have then turned at a machine shop if possible. Install new pads when you do this as you should not use the old pads on the newly turned or replaced rotors. When installing the wheels make sure to torque the lug nuts to exactly 100 lb/ft and tighten them in a star pattern. Merry Christmas

2005 Equinox steering wheel shakes when applying brakes. Have checked brake lining, rotors, rotated and balanced tires and disconnected ASB and nothing stopped the shakes.


have the rotors machined, shaking when braking is an indication of a warped rotor or drum, even though it may look ok, the rotor can still be warped, it would be a good idea to have the rotors/drums machined and new pads installed if the old ones are 4-5/32'nds or lower. that should take care of your shaking when braking issue

1998 Camry steering wheel shakes when braking and over 50mph


if you hit the brakes and it shakes its your rotors, they're probably warped. Having them turned (polished) won't fix it. You'll have to replace them. As for the shaking at over 50, if you're not touching the brakes, you'll probably just need to have your tires balanced. Maybe jack up you car an check the ball joints and tie rod ends (keep the tire on and see if there is play, either up and down (ball joints) and left and right (tie rods)). Hope this helps.
