Most low speed front end /steering shaking is caused by a broken internal belt in one tire. Out of balance condition usually shows up at 45 to 60mph. Belt condition can be checked by jacking up the wheels and simply turning the tires while sighting along the side at a stationary object. if you see the tire vary in straightness, or if you see any bulges in the sidewall or tread, replace the tire. If you keep a tire on the car with that condition you are asking for a blowout.
If you see steel protruding from the tread area or the tire is bald on one side of the tread, it's too late for rotation....you need new tires and an alignment!!

    Thank you I will see what I find. I just want to drive my car again.

    Just one afterthought. If you find no problem with the tires, there is a good chance that you have a front wheel bearing hub beginning to fail. Often they can feel a lot like a tire that the lugs aren't tight on.

Most likely the front tires need to balanced or are worn unevenly. Have all four tires rotated and balanced.

    My husband and I thought the same thing, but he was not sure I think it does have something to do with the tires because I park my car on a curb that is rounded so on one side my car is slanted. I thank you so much I will try to rotate my tires. :)

Shakes over 25


If it shakes at 25 mph then the u joints are worn or you have bent the drive shaft. Ujoint vibration starts around 30 and gets worse as you increase in speed.

Shaking Stering Wheel in a 2006 Jeep


If it shake only when the brakes are applied, then it is a brake issue/ uneven wear on the pads & discs.
There are upper and lower control arms, but if they are bolted tight, it shouldn't be the issue. If you hear clicking, check out you CV joints.
Have you rotated you tires? Patterns can wear in and cause lots of shaking.

Shaking at low speed (25-30 mph)


low speed shakes indicates a wheel alignment problem
have the suspension and wheel bearings checked out by an accredited suspension shop
under acceleration it could be engine mounts cracked in the rubber being actuated by misfiring form a cylinder
run the fault codes as well
