By changing the location of a bad tire or wheel you change the way it effects the car. Generally if its in the seat its on the back. if its in the steering its on the front. also a rebalanced tire may be closer but not right

FRONT END VIBRATION


The dealer is not going to replace something if they can not prove to the company the part is defective. The company won't pay the warranty claim.
A bent axle was my next guess. A garage could find out by using the same dial indicator used to check for a bent rim.
The dial gauge is placed against the shaft and the wheel is turned, if the axle is bent the dial will move.
I don't know what Road Forced balanced means, but most balancing machines duplicate road speed of about 30MPH. So a tire or wheel can balance ok on a machine but still have a vibration at speeds above 30 or 40mph. The easiest way to make sure is move the front tires to the back and see if the vibration travels too.
If you are describing the problem correctly, it almost has to be in the transmission, the axles, or the wheels. There is a slight chance a strut or strut mount could be faulty and allowing a small bounce to be amplified.

Vibration on 2004 Cadillac Deville


If a hub bearing was bad, it almost always would make noise, more so when changing lanes at higher speed. Outer CV joints make a loud low pitched rattle when turning (corners). Inner CV joints raise hell at high speed- bad shake! Sway links affect cornering and clunk when hitting rough patches of road surface.
Is the vibration worse at 65 than at 50? If so, you are dealing with a wheel balance situation. Find an old time front end shop that will check the balance on the vehicle. You will have to turn off the traction control to do this or use an on-the-car wheel balancer.
If you feel it at some low speeds at it comes back at other higher speeds, then you are dealing with tire roundness. Possible more than 1. More common than we would like.

I have a 91 chevy c1500 with (350) and when im driving down the highway it feels like the rear end is jumping when im accelerating slowly, but when i accelerate more the jumping goes away. Any Answers?


That would be something a person needs to experience first hand.
Does it feel like it coule be bad shocks and the rear is bouncing. That might have also caused the tires to go a little out of round.
Or is it a vibration? Maybe the tires just need to be balanced. Out of balance tires/wheels will vibrate to a certain speed (say 55-65ish) and smooth out as the speed gets higher.

Front wheels shimmy not all the time


Front tires may need balanced. Have the alignment checked. Try rotating the tires from front to rear.

If your tires were not properly balanced then it will cause that. Also, if your rotors are warped then icould cause this to happen. YOu would also notice it when braking if rotors are warped.

Steering wheel shimmys at speeds 35 and up just changed rotors and pads no play in new wheel bearings doesnt shimmy when i brake though. any help would help greatly thanks


If it shimmies with the brakes applied, it's a rotor problem....but like you say, it shimmies just at a certain speed with no brakes applied, check tires for out-of-roundness. If they look ok, you are looking at a balance problem with the tires.

Why would right rear tire wears unevenly,& a slight shimmy.


It could be an out of balance tire
or it could be a bent wheel.
Rub your hand over the surface of the tire. If it's been out of balance, it will feel out of round and choppy.
When the tire is changed the installer can check the wheel to make sure it's not bent.
If it's been bouncing for a while it can wear out the shock prematurely as well
Start with the tire balance...it may need a new tire to solve the noise and vibrations.

Wheel vibrations at 75+ mph


Most computer controlled tire balancing machines which are in use today only balance tires to between 65/70 miles an hour. To get them balanced to a higher speed you might want to call a few auto performance shops and see if they balance tires to a higher speed. At higher speeds it takes very little in the way of an off balanced tire to really set up a vibration so shake.

'98 aurora shimmies 60,296 miles on car


Most shimmies come from tire/wheel/balance combos. Before your dollars go down on 4 tires(assuming you have good tread), rotate tires & if there is a change you can figure out the offending unit
