Mine did this a lot too. I was lucky to get above 55 without it starting to shake. I was told it was nothing to worry about from the place that sold it to me. I don't know what exactly cured it but I know it stopped when I had new brakes put on and my tires aligned. maybe it was a bit of both?

I've got the same problem. Also brakes are rough when stopping. I'm going to turn my brake rotors today (provided I have enough energy) and see if that fixes the shimmying problem.

    Well that half worked. I turned the front brake rotors. The technician who did it said they didn't sound warped -- usually chh chh chh chh if they are warped. But it did cure up my chattery brakes. And it half helped the shimmying on the highway. I can go 67 now, not 60 as previous, before it is alarmingly rough. I'll do the rear brakes someday.

Why would the front end start shaking at speeds above 55mph?


It could be
- out of balance rims and tyres
- bent rim after a pothole
- worn tie rod ends
- loose lug nuts
- worn steering end ball joints (if fitted)
- loose or worn steering box mounts

and so on. Take it to a front suspension or tyre shop in case it is a sign of something serious.

Front end feels like it is bouncing when hit 55mph and faster


Sounds like worn shocks but could be wheels totally out of balance if it it's very quick. Slow would be shocks.

Vibration and allignment


have the front end checked for worn parts, something is worn out, hard to say without hands on look at the parts, any tire shop like Big O will do an inspection for free.

On the front passenger side, I replaced the ball joint (it was bad), the tie rod (bad) the wheel bearing (bad) and the CV HalfShaft (bad)....yet.... there is STILL shaking on the passenger side of the car....


The new tires could be out of balance,or even though they are new could have a bad belt in one of them,If it was doing this,the problem,if it was there before the tires were installed,have the front end checked.And you may need a front end alignment.If the tie rod,and ball joint were bad on that side,then chances are the other side may have bad front end parts also.You know it needs alignment after replacing tie rod ends don`t you?Eye balling the tie rod end does not get it back in line,and it may have needed the alignment anyway,Have a 4 wheel alignment done to make sure that is out og the equation while diagnosing the problem.

1990 cherokee shakes badly only at 50-55mph


Check the front steering damper. The steering damper is a shock that is mounted horizontaly in the front. The damper is bad if you see oil leaking from it or if the car has high mileage and never been replaced.

Van shimmes vibrates at speeds 60 to 65 then stops at 70 reduce speed and starts again


This condition is usually caused by a loose front end component, take it in and have it checked, also check for a possible cracked frame rail near the steering box.
