Your trucks camber (the angle of the wheel) and or toe-in (wheel angle change due to the geometry of the steering linkage in relation to the geometry of the suspension) is out of adjustment, and you need to have a front end alignment. Do not confuse wheel balancing with a front end alignment or four wheel alignment with wheel balancing. Many tire stores do not even have an alignment system, and you may have to call a few high end tire stores. However, in some cases you may not be able to adjust the camber and toe-in if your truck has had an accident or the a lift kit is installed to raise the vehicle. In this case, the vehicle may require parts or straitening bent parts which you will not know until you have the truck put on an alignment machine.

Take it to your mechanic and ask them to check your tie rods and then an alignment.

Front left wheel shakes at highway speed


Could be that your tire is unbalanced, wheel bearing is starting to go out, rim is bent, uneven tire wear, or the spindle that the wheel bearings go around could be slightly bent

Uneven tire wear and struts problem


Sounds like you should have the alignment checked on an alignment machine on all 4 wheels.Once you get those readings and an expert alignment mechanic's estimate on repair,only then will you know the correct repairs needed.

Everytime i press my brake the car turn left even when im not turning the car to the left.and some times when im running slow the car weegle a little bit


Your brake pads/rotors are unevenly worn or one of your front calipers are not releasing fully. The wiggle can be caused by warped rotors, or because of an unbalanced tire, bent rim, or worn/damaged suspension parts or you may need an alignment. Take the car to have a thorough braking and suspension system inspection.

Rods in rear are bent causing tires to wear


do you mean the tie rods or are you just looking there and see a part that looks bent? if both tires are wearing uneven, it could be just a rear wheel alignment that you need. did you just buy this car? it's possible something under the car is bent from a previous accident, but if you had this car for awhile and this problem just began then it may be just an alignment........good luck..p.s......if both tires are wearing uneven then it's unlikely a" rod "is bent , there would have to be a " rod " bent on both sides which is too coincidental.

2001 Jeep wrangler, at 45-50 mph, the front end and steering wheel shakes real bad.


I would start by first making sure you dont have a bent rim. Check the tires for any bubbles in the sidewall or any deformation in the tire as this would suggest a broken cord inside the tire. If that checks out, get the tires balanced and see if that solves the problem.

When i hit the brakes or go over 60 miles the wheels will start to shake


It sounds like you may have more than one problem here. First I would investigate Front End Alignment and ALL Steering/Suspension components for excessive wear and/or looseness. Second I would Inspect the Brake Rotors and Pads for uneven wear. Third I would check the Tires for uneven wear and balance. Many things can cause these symptoms: Worn out Ball Joints, defective Shock Absorbers/Struts. Worn out Tie Rod Ends, Idler Arm, even the Steering Gear Box can be part of the problem. Brake Rotors and Tires can be out of Balance with either one causing the problem over 60 MPH. I strongly suggest having your vehicle inspected by an ASE Certified Front End and Brake specialist immediately. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with these symptoms.

When i go over 55mph my front end trembles so bad it can be felt on the steering wheel


There are multiple reasons the front end could be shaking.

1. Tires are out of balance or one has become separated causing a knot.

2. One of the front bearings is going out.

3. One of the 2 front cv drive shafts are wearing out or bent.

4. Inner and Outer Tie rod ends needing replaced

Above are the 4 main causes of vibration in the front end being able to be felt in the steering wheel. i would first take the vehicle to the tire shop and have them check the balance on all 4 wheels. Also, while they have the wheels off, ask them nicely if they could check out the front end for you.
