Question about 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche

2 Answers

My Avalanche, when going appx 65-70 miles an hour rocks violently from side to side. If you go over a bumpy bridge at this speed, it will litterly hurt your neck and you have to hit the breaks immediatly to bring the speed down and stop this violent shaking. Literally feels the like the body is going to rock off the frame!

Replace the sway bar and traction control arm bushing. this will take care of your problem. check and replace the sway bar link s if they are loose.

You may have a bad or broken sway bar link, or the bushings. if the sway bar links break it will sway wildly especially on corners. on some vehicles they are hooked to " A " frame which is hooked to tire, this is why the tires go crazy. have a great day !!

The c v joint is going on my blazer..is it still safe to drive?


Actually they can seperate/come apart. when this happens the cv joint will flop around untill it gets to the point it locks up your tire. You can imagine your wheel locking up on the freeway going 70+ miles an hour. Ill draw you a little picture:

They can and WILL seperate locking up the tire as it flops around violently, eventually finding a spot that won't allow it to flop around anylonger. The flopping around at highway speed is enough to total out any vehicle not to mention the locking up of the wheel.

Tahoe 2001 4 wheel drive. above 60 miles an hour when driving over a bridge abunkment?? The front end shakes violently, my husband said the car felt like it was going to break apart. No one seems to...


You might jack up the truck on the side, leaving one front wheel on the ground, the other suspended. Have someone watch the steering components close to the suspended wheel while another moves the steering back and forth at a medium rate and look for 'unnatural' movements of joints. Do both sides to check.
This sounds like a tie rod end that is shot and these are fairly easy to spot since the joint will move in directions that are obviously wrong.
The reason it doesn't want to stop is that when one wheel is no longer being held rigidly, it will 'oscillate' causing the violent shaking. The boost from power steering worsens the problem. It can be dangerous; a friend had a worn tie rod end come apart while barreling down the Freeway. Steering with one wheel doesn't work. He survived but no longer ignores the signs.
If you had brought the truck to a decent front-end alignment shop, they would have found this while trying (it doesn't work) to align it.

Steering wheel violently shakes.


that is usually caused by bad engine mount this condition usually changes the distance of the cv joint and the differential which cause the cv joint to shake. also check your ball joints.
