Shake and shimmy in a 1997 Silverado. They replaced the pitman arm and steering arm yesterday and 2 wheel aliignment.


Sounds like you need another shop, Most of the items that would cause your problem should be found by the shop alignment tech. Some things to check, tires: mismatched size or type, separating belts. bent, warped or unbalanced wheels, steering box play (internal slop), loose steering box from frame, congealed fix a flat in one of the tires, worn out or broken shocks, loose wheel bearings, problem could be in the rear tires and felt through the seat. if shimmy is while braking , your rotors will need surfacing or replacing. Not a lot of info was provided. 2 wheel drive or 4, big tires or stock, how quickly did problem start... Good luck

Front wheels shimmy not all the time


Front tires may need balanced. Have the alignment checked. Try rotating the tires from front to rear.

Shimmy in steering


Hi:
You can do a couple simple things to try to figure out what is going on with your expedition:

1) Inspect your tires on the front of the vehicle.
look for any signs of uneven wear or any differences between the two front tires. check the air pressure.

2) swap your tires from the back to the front : If the problem goes away. you need to have your tires inspected for problems, and balanced, if necessary.

3) check for slop in your steering. slowly turn the steering wheel and have someone watch the front tires one at a time. There should not be much play in your steering, meaning when you start to move the steering wheel, the tire should start moving very soon. Check both sides, and often you will narrow down the problem, after looking at the tires and checking for sloppiness in the steering. The most common cause is a worn out tie rod end, but if you don't find anything, usually an auto shop will inspect your car for free, and tell you what they find too.

Steering wheel shimmy at highway speeds


This sounds like tie rod ends are going out. Before you remove the old ones, mark on the threads where it currently is seated or you will throw it out of alingment when you put new ones on. You may need to borrow or buy the tool for poping out the tie rod end. They aren't a big deal to change if you have some basic tools and sometimes you don't need the wedge tool either. Once you get the old one out, try moving it around. If it is real loose and moves easily, thats your problem. But the swaying you are describing sound like this is the problem. Could be you steering control arms as well but because the inside of the tires are worn I doubt it.

Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book

Slight shimmy while driving, but intensifies when braking


This could be caused by worn front end parts, and or unbalanced tires. to test with engine off the key in the ignition switch turned to the run position turn the wheel back and forth not enough to move the tires, if the steering wheel moves more than 2 inches then you have a problem and I can tel you how to test the front end parts to determine how to fix. If it's worse with the brakes applied then it is just amplifying the problem.

Front end shimmey on 2004 Maxima SE


It is possible that one of your new tires has what is called a slipped belt which is basically a faulty tire.

If they were able to successfully perform the front end alignment you can almost be sure that all of your ball joints, tie rod ends etc are ok as these really don't attribute to "shimmying" felt in the steering wheel.

The are several common causes of shaking felt in the steering wheel:
1. Out of balance wheel/tire combo
2. Slipped belt in a tire
3. Bent wheel

Your shop should be able to pinpoint the cause easily.

Take your car back to the shop that replaced your tires and tell them what you are experiencing. They can check your new tires again to make sure the belt on them did not slip.

The shimmy is mostly likely being caused by one of two things either your alignment is out or one of your tires is bubbling or warped take it to Les Schwab and ask them to check it. I had the same probelm years ago when I had my Civic, for example I had driven on snow chains on bare ground for one too many miles and caused channels to form in the shape of my chains on the tire which caused a biggggggg shimmy. Live and learn I was only 16.
