Had the tires balanced on a regular balanced . the mechanic looked it up and said the 2002 has a problem with the front end and that the tires need to be balanced on a special balancer. and if that does no do it then special arms need to be put on. is this correct?

All tyres should be "dynamically" balanced,that is, up/down (tyre bounce)and sideways,(tyre shake)front and rear(so you can rotate,if required).
personally, never heard of "special arms"for any car.....but i live in maybe someone knows different?????(dont think so.......)

.....front tires 2001 accord thump noise 40/50 mph. what could this be from? worse when acceleration up hill

One of the tires could be out of balance or out of round! I suggest that you take your vehicle to your mechanic, dealership or tire shop and get the front end and front tires looked at.

Truck has a shimmy

Could be tires are out of balance, tire/tires tread separating or perhaps some other front end problem. Check for any tire problems like bulges in the tread or some indicator of separation. If the tires look good then I would check the balance. If not the balance you might consider having a professional mechanic take a look at what the problem is. Hope this helps...

2003 Lincoln LS has steering shimmy at 70 mph

It's either:
  1. Out of alignment or
  2. Front tires are not properly balanced.
Either way you should have it repaired by a mechanic soon. Your destroying your tires and can cause front end damage.
HINT: Have the tires Dynamic balanced, not Static balanced. It cost a few dollars extra, but saves you twice as much in reduced tire wear.

I have a 2002 jeep wrangler that seems to start shaking at 60mph below or over ok. It is not major but noticeable. Where do I start looking? Thanks Dan

Grab hold off the prop-shaft to see if it is quite solid, it could be a worn UJ. Check the balance weight on the same shaft to ensure it hasn't slipped forward or backwards on the shaft.
Then get wheels checked, they could need re-balancing.

2002 axiom front brakes

The tires could be out of balance, maybe you clipped a curb. Or your front end could be about nto pass you. Id have the ball joints and tie rod ends looked at. Usually front end wobble leads to more serious issues quickly.
