Could be the steering box. but you should check the front wheel bearings if there is some play there that could cause a similar problem

While driving dwn the road i hve a bad shake in my steering wheel i have a 1999 gmc yukon


it sounds like the front tires need balancing.if you drive the truck slowly(creeping down the road at about 5mph)and lightly holding the steering wheel do you feel the steering wheel moving back and forth.this could indicate a bad belt in a tire where as a wheel imbalance won`t show up at this low of a speed,but a bad belt will.also have the front end checked for worn front end components and wheel bearings,this can cause a bad shake too.

Tie rod ends do not have bushings (ball and socket like your hip). If vibration begins at 50-55 but goes away at slightly higher speed, it could be caused by wheel balance. Once balance has been checked jack up each front wheel and shake them back and forth and check for any loose steering components. If reasonably tight, My guess is that you have a bad hub bearing. If you don't know how to change them, get a manual to guide you (chiltons or haynes are OK for this). Pretty much it is a bolt out bolt in procedure and not terribly difficult except that sometimes the hub is rusted in and is a bear to get out. Need any help with that, just ask.
Note...many bad hub bearings show no obvious defects...but can create a strong vibration...just determine which side is noisy and change it. Scrapyard parts are inexpensive and generally fairly reliable as replacements.

Steering vibration


What are the condition of your tires? If their worn they can vibrate, also maybe have them high speed balanced. Most any shop can do that relatively cheaply. Also make sure your tires are speed rated for the speeds your driving.
Also keep in mind, especially with a 4 cylinder engine, the higher the RPM's, the more vibration your going to feel.

The car jutters when driving over 60km/hr


Posible problems , listed from cheapest to most expensive.

Tires out of ballance
Broken chord in a tire
Bent rim
Loose ( worn ) tie rod ends
Bent axle
Wheel bearings ( but not likely)

If you have the tools , and a good safe flat driveway , jack up 1 corner of the car , spin the tire by hand and watch if it spins true , or wobles. while your at it , firmly grab the tire , and try to wiggle it side to side , in and out , back and forth. Repeat process for each wheel. If everything seems ok , I would think about getting tires ballanced. Probly about $ 12 each.
General observation is that if you feel the shake in the steering wheel , front tires are the problem , If you feel it on your bottom , rear tires. Good luck with that.
If you want to skip the whole jacking up the car proceedure , go directly to the wheel ballancing , and ask the mechanic to keep an eye out for "wheel out of true" while they spin on the ballancer.

Steering wheel vibrations


It could be worn starting parts, Not ballanced wheel, and broken or worn struts. Start with the wheel getting ballance and go from there if there was no problems before your got the new tires put on.
