When a steering stabilizer goes bad, it will produce the exact wobble you have described. The one where you NEED to slow down to stop it, and then its fine. Its called "Death Wobble" in the car/truck enthusiast world.

Have you checked that? Typically called a steering stabilizer / steering dampener.

Good luck!

I have a 98 lincoln navigator and when i pull out and hit about 35 the left tire seems like its bouncing and shaking the steering wheel violently is it the tie rods ball joints or what

There are many things turning that can make this happen.

If this is a case where you back up and then go forward, CV joints(4WD) and any driveshaft U-joint can unseat itself from its normal fit and be loose until it jams into place snuggly when returning to its normal forward direction.

Check your lugs for tightness. A front hub bearing can also do this in conjunction with a warped front rotor. The wobble in the hub bearing will make the rotor attached to it wobble too. The high spots will strike the brake caliper until the caliper retracts to accommodate the high spots hitting it. This should exhibit a pull to the side binding.

You are also correct about play in the tierod ends or unseated balljoints. Either or both can cause a shake.

Your model has a fullsize spare. Temporarily switch tires and see if this helps. Sometimes a belt will shift and then spring back to roll smoothly on a change of direction. You will also be able to check your tierod ends more easily with the front tire removed.

1993pontiac grand am front wheels wobble while driving

Jack up the front wheels and rotate them by hand. Look for any runout that may be cause by a bent wheel. Also feel the tread as you rotate the tire. It should be smooth and concentric. If there are any bulges in the tread the tire is seperated. Grab the wheel at the top and bottom and push/pull. You should feel no play. If you do you woman have a bad wheel bearing. In order to check ball joints and tie rods you will need to have the tire off the ground and the jack under the subframe or pinch weld. This will not work if the jack is under the control arm. Grab the tire at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions and push pull. If you feel any play you either hav E worn ball joints or worn tie rod ends. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Front driverside tire wobbling and very unstable lug tight

Check the wheel hub bearing, jack so the wheel is off the ground, if the wheel can be moved in any direction 360 degrees, then the bearing is bad. If the wheel will move by pulling up and down then it's the balljoint, just back and forth, it's ths tierod.

I have a 1999 chrysler 300m and when i drive it pulls to the driver side and sometime it pulls to the passenger side plus on top of all this the front end pops when i turn and it sounds like the springs...

You need some front end work. Have checked ,the ball joints, tierod ends, wheel bearings, drag link, pitman and idler arms, and the swaybar links. your car should not pull both ways. have it checked and if you want to do this yourself let me know and I will guide you thru it.

1995 camry front end wobbles at any speed including steering wheel shake

You probably need to get the tires balanced. One of the balancing weights may have come off.
Make sure the lugnuts are tight.

I have a wobbly wheel, how do i fix it?

You need to check the hub bearing and the lower ball joint on the vehicle and make sure they are good. If you can jack the vehicle up and can grab the top and bottom of the wheel and wobble it back and forth then the bearing is possibly bad. If you can grab the front and rear of the tire and move it back and forth it could be the tierod end you can have someone watch the parts while you move the tire.

Just Got A Honda Prelude What Do I look For?

Take a look at the cv joints....the boots that cover the ends that go into the tranny and the end that attaches to the tire area. Look at the color of the oil...see if it is grey or tainted with anything other than motor oil.

Take a look at the belts....cracks fraying, the belt tight....that type of thing for the belt inspection....look for shiny spots...leads to squealing.

Drive the vehicle at different're paying attention to the "feel" of the steering...this will give you indications of the front pulls left, it pulls right.....wobbles....make turns left and right....listen for clunks....all this will let you know the condition of the front end/steering system.

Get on the highway or open about 45-65 and slow down faster than usual...if it pulses in the front end, and you can feel it in the steering wheel...good bet the rotors are warped from high speed braking. Squeeks when you apply breaks....brake wear indicator telling you the brakes are worn.

Jack the front of the car up and twist and pull...push and pull the left and right tire....anby wobble or noises...may have bad bushing/ball joints/cv joints.

there is a lot of stuff to look for...but this is a few things to keep you busy.

Hope this helps you.

Please don't forget to rate.....Thanks
