Do you mean, that when it is jacked up in the front, there is play as indicated by wobbling the wheels at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions and the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock positions?

Or, do you mean that the steering wheel shimmies when going down the highway?

Maybe the front end should be checked for play and any parts such as ball joints, bearings, or tie rod ends should be replaced as needed.

How To Repair Ford Taurus


if the steering wheel is vibrating it may only be tire balancing ,, but whoever put on the tires should have done this ,,, if you jack up te car in front ( and do use axle stands ) catch the wheel top and bottom there should be very little play in it when you rock it ,,, try the same across the wheel ie quarter to 3 ''' if you find excessive play a bearing or steering linkage part is worn ,,,alignment wont cause vibration only uneven tire wear ,,,,,check the play asap because if a balljoint of steering part is badly worn this could become dangerous

When Im driving my 2001 Cadillac deville on the highway at 55mph and up, if the hwy starts to curve to the left the car starts shaking. But once the hwy straightens back up, the shaking stops. Why is that?


Could be a bad wheel bearing. This is very dangerous, be sure and get it checked out asap. If the wheel comes off you're going to have a very bad day!

When im driving the car moans and moans even louder when i turn the wheel, the faster i drive the louder the sound gets


You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced

might have a tierod end going out jack the front end off the ground and move the tires side to side feel for play in the steering, also try to move the tire in and out on the bottom if you have play there you might have a wheel bearing going out or you might have a ball joint going out, but most likly its a tierod end, inner or outer.

Good luck

2004 dodge ram 4x4 front end shaking problems when we hit a bump...replaced the front wheel bearings,upper/lower ball joints,steering damper!!! any ideas


Could possibly need the steering box adjusted. It might be a little loose. And tire balance usually makes it shimmy. Could have a broken belt in one of the tires. Jack up the wheel and spin the tire and check the run out. (look for a wiggle when spinning the tire).

Im am rotating tires on a 94 jeep cherokee the


Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X" pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.

This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)

Good luck.

Wheel rub at high speeds.


It sounds like a bad bearing on the right side hub. you can check this by raising the front of the car till the tires are off the grond. Grab the tire and try to wiggle it up and down and front to back if there is any play replace the bearing. check both sides

Jacking car on frame rail, the front end should be very tight. No play in tie rod ends, ball joints or wheel bearings. GM has sloppy front end parts.
