Is there a shimmy at all speeds or just a particular speeds? First thing would check are tires to make sure a tire did not separate on you.Look for large bulges in the tread of the tire as well as any deformation of the tire, steel belts showing on the edges of the tire. Please feel free to respond so we can help resolve your issue.

When applying the brakes, the whole car shimmys. replaced rear rotors , turned front rotors , and replaced all the pads


I think you should get the Tierod ends checked. When you get a Front-end alignment, the mechanic will check them. Although you turned the front Rotors, when you start Braking the front tires can wander differently than when they freewheel.

Sometimes you can get a rust problem on the Rotors that were just made shiny. Moisture on the pads imprints a rust blotch on the Rotor and they grab at the rust until the rust wears down. Then they are ok.

When the rear Rotors were replaced check your bill and see if the Emergency brake shoes were changed. The E brakes should have been adjusted when the Rotors were replaced. The Shimmy you describe can also be the ABS working. The ABS is a pulsating Brake action.

Get your front-end checked first, then as the mechanic road tests it when the Alignment is complete, he can judge the brakes.,

Front end shimmys when accelerating and under a load when reaching 35 to 55 mph???


Start by driving the car very slow down a flat road. If the sterring wheel wobbles back and forth do this. If you know which side has the worst shimmy jack the front wheels off the ground so you can rotate each tire freely. Have another person with you for four eyes are better than two for this proceedure. One will rote each front tire slowly looking for a buldge in the tire. If you do see a buldge in the side wall or on the tread area which sticks out that is cqaused by a broken belt in the tire. That will cause a shimmy as you drive.

Check front end again for any side play (small amounts at different locations can add up. Also check that steering box is not loose on frame.Check all bushings as well. If all else fails, if caster is adjustable have another degree or two put in. (positive)

Front end shimmy


Sounds like you may have some large tires on the Jeep. Check the stabilizer rod that attaches to the frame and down to the front differential. It may be loose or have worn bushings. This would cause the front end to shake at times. You probably get this problem to go away by applying the brakes a little or slowing down quickly to a certain speed. If that is the case check the rod and bushings. Good luck.
