Hi, well when lower or upper ball joints go bad your tires will wear more tread on the inside edge of the tire and you might hear a pop or clunk when turning a corner.... but from what your describing it sounds like #1rst. the shake,since its only shaking when you brake and not all the time, tells me your brake rotors are warped and need turned( brake shop can do ) #2. if the truck only pulls right when you brake.then thats going to be in the brakes also... I would have your rotors turned and put new brake pads on it and that should fix your problem....yz-maniac.

2007 dodge caliber rt slap stick put new tires on 3 months ago driver side front tire is worn cant let off wheel car pulls bad to the right side of the road


The popping could be from a bad CV axle joint, or a bad wheel bearing. Better get checked, sounds very worn. Raise the wheel on a jack and watch for play. Grab wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock, and shake back and forth-watch for play. Wheel bearing? CV joint -is boot still good? Ball joints at bottom of wheel attaching point to the control arm-check this for play, too.

Check the brake caliper. Take a screwdriver and compress the caliper a little bit, you can do this with the tire still on. Drive and see if the clunk went away, and comes back after you drive it, try it again, and if the same thing happens, replace the caliper. Also check your shock mounts, ball joints and tie rod ends. Replace any that are worn, (you shouldn't have any looseness in either rod ends and ball joints, they should move, but not have any play in them) make sure that all rubber mounts are not worn or loose.

Ive got a 06 grand caravan that shimmies and pulls hard to the right. Any guesses as to what might be the cause. Broken axel?tie rod bushing ?


There are a number of different things that could cause that problem, a bad tire, a lower or upper control are bushing, a worn out inner or outer tire rod end l, a bad wheel bering. To figure out exactly where the problem is you need to visually and physically inspect each side of the suspension by having someone move the steering wheel back and forth while you observe both sides from underneath the front of the vehicle. From there you should be able to see what is moving when it shouldn't be or not moving when it should. Also inspect your brake rotors. You may simply need new rotors and brake pads.

When breaking, my break pedal begins to pulsate when stopping. Also, the steering wheel begins to shake when breaking.


Usually a sign one of the front brake rotors is out of round. It could also be something wrong with the abs but I doubt it.

Front wheels wobble intermittantly and excessive free play


Sounds like bad ball joints or tie rod ends. Test the ball joints by jacking the car and forcefully shake the lifted wheel top and bottom. If you feel play and/or hear a clicking noise when you do that, the ball joints are at fault. Do the same but this time shaking the wheel from side to side, again if there is a lot of play and/or a clicking noise, the rod ends are worn. Either condition can be hazardous if you don't address them.

car shakes which is called shimmy shake,if brake pads been replaced wheels still shimmy, you have worn brake rotors with low and high spots,you could have bad wheel bearing, you have worn out tie rod ends and worn out ball joints,you could have tire out of balance,also you could need front end alignment.many things will cause wheels to do the shimmy shake.
