Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
2005 Chevy Equinox-Ok the tires went bad from the inside out and caused a lot of vibration in the front end, for a while it took time to figure out that,that was the problem and i now believe it has caused a new problem. The front end has a (clacking sound) for better lack of a word and a slight vibration, it starts at just over 65mph and stops when over 70mph and really does it when you hit a bump in the road. I can also feel it in the gas foot peddle. Had someone look at it and he does'nt think its the tie rods or the bushin's so now he's Stumped. He said maybe an alignment or that it could possible be the rack? I know nothing about cars and don't have a lot of money to be caseing down the problem. HELP PLEASE!
Berniev... I have the exact same problem. Were you ever able to identify the issue?

Likely whatever causes the noise also caused the problem with your tires. Have a competent shop or tech check your ball joints and c/v axle joints. It could be a bad hub bearing as well but usually they make more noise at lower speeds.
After you determine what is actually wrong and fix it, it is a good idea to have it aligned. Unless the alignment caster is severely "off" it should not cause any shaking. Caster is pretty munch non-adjustable on your car and will never cause a noise though. Ball joints if worn can cause the tires to "splay" out at the bottom causing uneven tire wear.
I'm leaning towards ball joints but without the advantage of being there to examine it, no one can say for sure.
