Your rotors need to be turned . They after time and excessive heat tend to get a warp or ribbing dont forget the brake pads iam sure their not far behind.

    Personally I dont believe your tires need balanced you stated it shakes only when you apply the brakes if it was balanced it would shake even without applying brakes matter a fact if your rotors were good and your tires out of balance when you apply brakes the shakes would stop.

When driving about 120km/h there is a noise.is like is driveshaft/innr cv joints pliz help what might be the problem


Your question is vague. What type of car/truck. More than likely it is a hub bearing. Outer CV joints make noise onlyaccelerating on turns. Inners are quite, but shake badly upon acceleration.

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!

Car shakes badly


Front rotors are warped, you need to have them resurfaced, or get new ones and id suggest replacing the brake pads.

Okay, so I have a 1996 honda civic ex and since iv'e bought it the steering wheel would shake when I brake from going 40 mph and up. This happens everyday and not only does the steering wheel shake I...


If it only does it during braking, it's not an axle. Likely culprits are warped rotors or bad suspension bushings.

A warpped rotor will cause the brakes on that rotor to grab and release as the rotor goes around, causing a shake. This is often felt in the brake pedal as a pulsing as well.

Failed front suspesion bushings can cause this as well, esppecially on front wheel drive cars.. When you are accelerating, your wheels are pulling the control arms forward, but when you brake, the control arms are pushed backwards. So, depending on what bushings are worn out, your alignment can change pretty drastically going from accelerating to braking or vice-versa. This would also account for the moving/hitting sensation you described. To check this you need to jack up the front of the vehicle and check the control arm bushings, as well as any other bushings for links/parts connected to the control arm.

The steering wheel of my 2003 Toyota Corolla shakes at 75 mph when accelerating and at 30 mph when braking.


hi you have two sprat problems the first is the shaking at acceleration
you need to have front tiers checked and balanced that should fix the shacking.
and now the shacking when braking must likely it is brake rotors are heat damaged
and need be resurfaced or replaced
good luck

Brakes all 4 lock up steering wheel shakes above


OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?

If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.

Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.
