The struts are no longer charged - to absorb the impacts of the road.
Have them checked.

SOURCE: front end of 2006 Lumina

Check front tie rods...this is a major safety issue...also probably need alignment or have bad tire (seperarted belt) causing the swerve, and pulling condition...The tie rods are not to expensive to resolve this safety problem...Hope this helps.

It sounds like an issue with your steering or suspension. Because it gets louder and faster as you drive, it is almost certainly something that is either loose, or worn out. I have seen tires that have a bump or a blister on them to create a bumping noise, like you're driving over several speed bumps at once. I would take it to a trusted place and just have them do a front end inspection. Some places will even do this for free, hoping they'll find a problem and make their money back. I believe that Midas was doing free front end inspections. If not, lots of places will do it when you get your oil changed, etc. You may want to look under it yourself and just see if you can push or pull on anything and feel any slack or looseness.

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. There is a "violent" vibration that occurs only when you are going 40-60 MPH and you hit a bump or pot hole on the highway. The front end begins to...


Vibration from about 40-60 mph is usually attributed to wheel balancing, but the onset when you hit a bump seems to indicate play in the steering linkages (tie rods etc) or suspension members and stabiliser bar rubbers but you had that all checked out, that brings us back to the wheel balancing.

Front end feels loose and steering wheel shakes after going over rough terrain... what could it be.


Tie rod ends or ball joints. Possibly a control arm bushing failure but not as likely. Could also be caused by worn out shocks but usually that causes the truck to bounce up and down after hitting a bump.

Ford escape front end rattle


My wife's 20002 escape had a similiar issue. Whenever the front end on the driver side was compressed due to turns or bumps a clunking noise was heard. Then it happened to the other side later. The stabilizer rods on both sides had come loose. When you look at them you can't tell but, if you pull on them when someone bounces the front end up and down you can feel the ball bouncing in and out of the joints. The joints are made of plastic and wear out easily but are not too difficult to replace and are inexpensive.

Very bad shaking after hitting a bump


this is known as death wobble because it feels like you are going to die but slowing down will end it.

The cause for death wobble are:
  1. Worn or loose tie rod ends on your steering linkage.
  2. Worn or loose trackbar bushings or tie rod ends on the trackbar itself.
  3. front end needs alignment.
  4. and many others but the common reasons are listed above.
try to realign the front end. If it doesnt help, then you do indeed have worn steering / suspension components.
