Thank You

SOURCE: vibration at 45 mph.

first, if the milage is high it could be a cv halfshaft even if the boots are not split. if the tires are new and no rims are bent, make sure there is no fix -a- flat in the tires, (liquid will not balance) and cause a severe vibration. i would suggest you take it back to your shop and have them put it on a lift, raise up the front wheels under the outer part of the lower control arm where the front is not hanging down too far and start the vehicle. run it up to 45mph to 60mph and have them feel in the drivetrain for vibrations and shakes.if it is felt with the car this way the vibration is in the drivtrain. inner cv's or in the transmission. thanks and let me know what you find out.

SOURCE: Vibration and noise from front end while driving

Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.

SOURCE: 2005 Equinox steering wheel shakes when applying

have the rotors machined, shaking when braking is an indication of a warped rotor or drum, even though it may look ok, the rotor can still be warped, it would be a good idea to have the rotors/drums machined and new pads installed if the old ones are 4-5/32'nds or lower. that should take care of your shaking when braking issue

Strong front end vibration at speeds over 60 mph. Shocks, ball joints have been replaced and wheels aligned and balanced. Took it to a tire repair shop and they couldn't find problem. Any ideas on...


You need to have someone look at it that is experienced in NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness). Front end vibrations can be caused by many things. Each possibility needs to be systematically eliminated to find the cause. Someone who is experienced in this can eliminate several possibilities by simply driving the vehicle...Did the tire shop even bother to road test it? I'll bet not!

Sometimes INTERNAL tire problems can cause a vibration that cannot be found (or eliminated as a possibility) by putting the tires on a balance machine. To eliminate this as a possibility, rotate the tires front-to-rear one side at a time then drive the vehicle to see if the vibration changes or "moves". If it does, then the tire that just got rotated to the rear is the problem.

Also, the vehicle can be run on a lift to see if the vibration can be duplicated in the shop. Many times, if the vibration is being caused by a drive axle or CV joint, it can be located by running the vehicle on a lift this way. In the case of 4-wheel drive vehicles, it will be necessary to engage the front axles to get them spinning on the lift.

The entire steering and suspension system should be checked for looseness in the tie rods, stabilizer links and frame bushings, control arm bushings, etc. Any looseness in any of these parts can cause vibrations at certain speeds.

I have also seen vibrations that act similar to a tire being out of balance that occurs when the brake rotors loose a balancing weight on some vehicles. This may or may not apply to your vehicle, (yours may not have balance weights in the rotors) but this type of vibration can usually also be verified by running the vehicle on a lift.

There is a loud howling noise coming from the rear end of my 2006 Chevy equinox. At first I though it was the tread on my new tires but it's definitely getting louder and isolated to only the rear end....


If it's a All Wheel Drive then it could be a gear oil leak that has caused a bearing in the drive train to fail. Just adding gear oil won't fix the problem, but may limit the damage until it's repaired.
If it's a Front Wheel Drive, then you may have a Wheel Hub Bearing Assembly failing. This usually has a ABS [ Anti-Lock Brake ] light associated with it.
Either is dangerous and should be checked ASAP.

2005 Equinox has vibration through the steering wheel at 65 miles per hour.


check condition of front tire, also the balance of the fronts 65 is a common speed for tire vibration. do not overlook steering play(tie rods, ball joints) also bent wheel. any noise? could have wheel bearing issue. lots of places, like vip, pepboys, etc. will check front end for free hopeing to sell you a part. not bad deal because you do need "something" even if it is tires balanced.

2006 Magum R/T vibration occurs at exactly 43mph and 54mph. Any change in speed over or under-stops. Purchased 2 sets of tires/balanced 6 times-same problem. Wheel bearing? Three shops checked it out...


is your vibration at 43 and 54mph coasting or under acceleration?
we had a car in the chry shop once with sort of the same problem,i brought another identical car in a different bay,removed all four wheels from our car to customers,road tested customers car afterwards,still had the vibration,brought it back in a took the time to swap cv shafts,road tested again,but still had the vibration.it ended up being the bushings in the transmission that keeps the CV shafts from wobbling.

I would guess incorrectly tightened or installed wheel bearing. Or it might just need to get greaced.
