I have an "04" Chevy Cavalier recently started violently shaking if I drive over 40mph and I can't hardly keep it in my own lane there's also a kinda bird chirping noise any ideas what this might be?

I suggest a full front suspension and steering ball joint check including wheel bearings and cv joints
if all ok then have a wheel alignment as it sounds like a castor wobble problem

Vibration through steering.wheel ?

The first thing I'd check would be my tires. Then if it isn't the tires it would be in the front end. Tie Rods, Ball joints. steering linkage. or if at worst The Rack and pinion.

I have a 2002 GMC Envoy. Just replaced passenger wheel bearing, both sway bars, both upper ball joints, outer tie rod-drivers side, & brakes all around. Now the car wants to walk all over the road, ...

I am wondering if you have checked and reset the steering geometry? After all that work the front wheel toe could be miles away from the ideal setting.

Mostly checking and adjusting the toe of the front wheels is beyond the scope of the home mechanic so after the sort of work you have done the first journey needs to be to the nearest trustworthy vehicle workshop offering the service.
Considering the list of work you have done it would be advisable to request a full alignment check rather than the basic toe check/reset.

The toe setting is not just important for predictable steering but also to prevent excessive and uneven tyre wear and reduce road noise and fuel consumption. When the toe setting is incorrect the tyres are effectively being pushed or dragged sideways and a tyre can be lost in a very short time.

An unwise mixture of tyre brands can produce similar symptoms. I call it a random lane change facility and perfectly legal and well-maintained cars can suffer from it to a potentially lethal degree by allowing tyre sales people sell the tyres they are making the most profit on that week instead of the ones matching the other tyres on the car.

Good day.. my steering wheel is experiencing drugging when using brake at speed of 85kph and above. i even change my tire rod and ball joint and even the velocity joint.still the result is the same..

Dear Sir,
As you said you have problem with steering wheel drugging while brake, i think it may happen at time when your car abut to stop or got slow may speed between 30 to 20 km/h, if this is case then first replace fr tyre with rear both and then Tyre if problem solve then it is a problem with tyre, it got uneven wear due to imbalance actually tyre shakes and that feeling we feel in steering wheel. and if problem not solve then replace fr both low arm bush and joints. there is only to cause that can make steeing vibrate. i hop after trying this you have soled your problem if any issue please let me know. Thanks.

I have a 2005 Honda CRV and get an intermittent vibration in the front end when going anywhere from 35-49 mph. Usually on straight road. Lasts for say 10 seconds then stops. New tires. Alignment if...

best guess is to have the CV joints checked, make sure that the boots are good in the outside joints. but it could also be the inside joint just has to much wear. you are at the right mileage for either to be the problem, the next time you get the vibration put a little pressure on the steering wheel in one direction then the other and see if the vibration goes away if it does suspect the CV joints. and don't just replace the outside joint replace both half shafts. if the vibration does not change or go away when you put pressure on the steering wheel then suspect lower ball joints.

Six months ago car had bumpy ride when starting out and there would often be a shimmy in steering wheel. Then it began to shimmy sometime at higher speed. Mechanic ground the rotors and it was fine. ...

hi this could be down to the fact that the tyres may be miss shaped due to the rotors being deformed and also you might now have worn ball joints on the hubs, to check either of these, jack front of car up, grab the top and bottom of wheel and push and pull top and bottom if it is a ball joint there will be play in the wheel, also this will indicate weather the wheel bearing is also warn, spin the wheel and listen to see if you can hear a grinding noise that will be the bearing, to check the tyre, spin the wheel and look along the edge of the tyre if it is deformed you should see a wobble in the tyre...hope this helps

1998 olds aurora wears out inside of front tires

Unless there is noise or play when cornering sharply at low speeds (parking), the CV joint / boot is still ok. The joint does need grease in there and the rubber boot fitted properly very soon.

As the suspension is set, the axle does little more than provide drive. It doesn't affect toe-in or camber angle.

Camber angle (vertical tilt inwards) is a product of the suspension design, and often cannot be altered.

Weak front springs can also throw this angle out, as the vehicle sits too low.

Toe-in (forward point angle) can and must be set accurately, or you will skid about in wet weather depending which tyre grips more.

What is most important to you, is the tyre design, tread width and outer radius. Also the tyre pressures MUST be mid limit when cold on the front - otherwise excess wear will result.

Having tyres with a large contact area that are too rigid on the front will increase wear to the insides.

Also, it is good practice to rotate the tyres to even-out wear. Usually front tyres move to rear axle, and rears swap sides to front axle. If wear is uneven, pop them off and turn around before refitting. Some tyres you cannot do this with.

If you choose a tyre with a harder tread compound, or ones with "C" at the end of the code, these will again last a lot longer.

Thanks for using Fixya!. If this provides an answer for you, please rate as such. Thanks.
