Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I have a shaking in the front end of my 1995 subaru legacy I thought it was the wheel balance but I had the wheels balanced and still have the same problem. I also had a problem with the exaust, it came apart where thoes two springs are so I tied it back together until i can get a repair kit. Could this be the cause of the shaking???

It would give a slight vibration, but could cause the car to shake if the exhaust is broke, It could be a bad rotor. Even though you had the wheels balanced, did he check for broke belts or knots on the tires.

    In that case you could have a possible bad pulley on the engine or a (harmonic balance) There's quiet a few different things, it's more less getting the facts like (it gets worse when pushing the gas. ) Some non-obvious things can cause it to vibrate and will only be pronounced during acceleration. Good Luck with it. Sorry couldn't be of more help.

I have Toyota 2006 sienna and front right wheel shakes or wobbles ... I have new front tires and balanced.. but still wobbles a little...please any thoughts?


Hi Scott.
Try switching the wheels from left to right side and see if the wobble goes with it.
If not, look for a worn tie rod end or other suspension component.
If wobble goes to left side, look for bent rim.
Cheers.

My 99 jeep cherokee shakes in front end around 60mph


You didn't supply a lot of info but generally a consistent shake at a particular speed is caused by wheel balance being off. Before having the balance checked look at the wheels inside and outside. Many times you can get either mud or ice packed in that will disturb the balance.
If balance is good, then you need to have the front end components checked for wear. If the shaking is very violent, it may be what's known as "death wobble" which can stem from excessive wear of components, usually either ball joints or track bar but everything's suspect. If you have that you can't mistake it as the steering wheel feels like it is trying to rip right out of your hands!!!.

Steering wheel shakes violently when traveling over 55mph. What is the problem.?


front tires need to be balanced, make sure tires still have enough tread and front end does not have any worn parts such as inner and outer tie rods and upper and lower ball joints. also check and correct tires air pressure.

1995 Ford Crown Victoria - shakes/vibrates @ highway speeds.


Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book

Front right shakes when driving at speeds of 65 to 70. car has 183,000 mi now.


RF wheel out of balance probably - maybe lost a balance weight or tire close to failure (seperated belts) - rotate to rear (and rear to front) and see if shake moves with tire (steering stops shaking)....then you'll know...
