The driver side tire on my Nissan Altima shakes badly I've changed the brakes but I'm wondering if I need to change the lower control arm


Can you grab the tire/wheel assembly and it has looseness while stationary or is it a shake that starts when speed increases?
If it starts to shake as speed increases,you may need a wheel balance.
If there is any looseness when you grab it while stationary,get a look under there SAFELY!! and replace any loose parts.

Honda crv steering wheel shake


great danger there. dont go fast.
can be tires out of balance (tire weighs feel off)
or wheel falling off (ever check the lugs)
tire bad. (bulged, delaminations , man killer tires, like Firestones)
tire rods balls, ready to fall off (more man killers)
ball joint ,ready to fail. and far far worse...
why not get the car serviced, have them check it out before.... bad happens.
noise and vibration or shaking on any machine means , doom is coming. in most cases,.

1999 volkswagon beetle, steering wheel shakes sometimes at higher speeds and brakes tend to grab calipers. But if i stop car and turn off car and restart car, all is fine. that is until it happens again....


Have a wheel alignment and suspension check . Check brake pads thickness and disc rotor condition. Shaking at speed indicates wheel alignment and worn tie rod ball joints and/ suspension badly worn

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced


You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

When i start the car and begin to drive, the steering wheel vibrates, as i pick up speed it stops, i've had the tires rotated and balanced several times, it's fine for a while than it starts again???


These may not be your problems since it is occurring even at low speed but you might have the car just free of the ground and rotate each wheel and watch the clearance while you do it for changing clearance. This will reveal 'out-of-round' tires; it happens. Second; but less likely, I had this annoying problem of two speed ranges, around the 30 MPH and 70 MPH points causing wheel shake and it only stopped after I tossed the original brake rotors and replaced them with Brembos.
In 50+ years of driving, poor tires have happened several times and brake rotors twice. There was a feature of a now-defunct chain called 4-Day Tires that kept me going back called 'tire matching.' All replaced tires were checked and then shaved slightly to correct for roundness. With this done, I never had any loss of balance during the life of the tires. Haven't found this offered anywhere else since then; too bad.

The left front tire is shaking, the rim isn't bent or anything. What is causing this to happen?


If the Tire is shaking all the time check the tire rod ends, If it shakes when your braking especially at higher speeds check the run out on the Disk Brake could be warped, look at spring housing for strut

Steering wheel vibrating - shaking


Could be tie rods,bearings, cv joint. or just need fluid in the power steering. I have even had a brake stick just enough to cause a vibration.

Try taking a look at your front wheel bearings. Lift the front of the vehicle then grab the tire from the bottom and the top. Push in on the top and pull out on the bottom. If you have a lot of movement then your wheel bearings are bad or need to be tightened. If that does not work I would look into the accumulator for the ABS and it's surrounding switches and relays.
