Sounds like the tires are out of round. Jack up and spin tires by hand and watch the contour in the tread area to see if it is uniform.

99 ford ranger when turning have a vibration in steering wheel rebuilt front end and still does it brand new tires so it anit that drives fine just when turning has a vibration


Eliminating steering linkages and tires as a possibility, the only things remaining to check are WHEEL BEARINGS (likely culprit on Ford trucks), brake rotors (cheap just to buy new ones and replace while servicing or replacing the wheel bearings), and loose or worn shock absorbers.

Vibration at 70 MPH.


Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

Front tire on passenger side shakes when i hit a bump at 20mph or higher.


perhaps a leaked out shock absorber....you might see an oily film on the lower half of the shock.....simplest place to start. If not that, then the front end should be checked for worn or broken component

First i got two problems. One my cigar lighter in my 1992 jeep cherokee sport 4.0 high output doesn't work. i got three wires tied together behind it but only two are hooked up, should the third be hooked...


The lighter has an orange wire with a black stripe on it.The light in the ashtray is the same and then a black wire going to earth.
Steering shake.Here is a checklist
Tires out of balance
loose/worn wheel bearings
Bad shock absorbers
Steering box loose
The idler arm damaged or worn
A bad ball joint.
With the car off.Get someone to rock the steering wheel side to side.Listen for any sounds.Then do this with the front of the car jacked up off the ground.(don't get under it)It should help pinpoint the problem.Hope this helps

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee grinding while steering


I'd bet your brake rotors are grooved and need to be resurfaced (or replaced if they are too thin). This also means you should replace the pads too.

Vibrating steering wheel on 2005 F-150. Steering wheel vibrates at 26 mph then fades away.


Your front tires could be out of balance, or out of the round. Have it balanced.
Shock absorber and /or suspension components worn or damaged.
Lose or worn out steering parts.
Doe's do it when you braking.

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
