2011 Kia sorento front end vibration when turning


Check front wheel bearings for adjustment. Check cv joints are not worn. Check suspension rubbers. Check tie rod ends for wear. Check the bushes of the tie rods that hold the wheels in alignment

Got vibration through the break peddle in my focus st when breaking at high speeds , had the discs skimmed and new pads all round also had new tyre's all round and its still vibrating, can't think of...


Hello, I have a few ideas about your problem. The tie rod ends keep the front wheels parallel to each other and they must be tight to maintain front-end alignment. If you previously had square rotors in the front, the tie rod ends had a work out and may have loosened up. If you decide to replace the ends and do not want to get an alignment, then try replacing each end like this:

If you can put the wheels on portable ramps or blocks of wood, keep the weight of the vehicle on the tires. Mark the rod with paint, scribe the rod with a hacksaw, or put a piece of wire on the thread side of the rod to mark the tie rod ends' position. Take one side of the tie-rod and drop the end out of the wheel fixture and then unscrew the end while counting turns. Replace with a new part and turn in the same amount of turns. The new end should be close to the mark for the old end where you previously marked the rod. The accuracy comes in when you go to attach the tie rod end into the wheel fixture. The tie rod end should line up exactly with the wheel fixture and then draw straight up into the housing when you tighten the tapered end of the new tie rod into place. By having the weight of the car on the tires, you should minimize the slack between the 2 wheels.

Just remember that you may have slack in both ends and there is a tendency to make all of the adjustment on the first side you do. This would throw the front-end alignment off.

The next step is to check drive-train vibration. If you have an Automatic this is a little easier. It will not hurt to put the trans in Neutral to see if the vibration goes away when performing high speed braking. If the brake action is smooth with the trans in Neutral, but not in Drive, you may need to have the PCM reprogrammed. The trans is suppose to release the overdrive and go into standby mode while the gears are downshifting. The delays and timing of this mode are programmed into the PCM. It can simply be a Solenoid is sticking or the software needs a tweak to release everything cleanly.

For a stick-shift, you may be starting to feel a throwout bearing vibrate or a clutch plate wobble from worn parts. Sometimes vibrations travel through different pedals if the tension is less on the Brake than the tension on the clutch. This is usually the case when down shifting.

I hope I have given you some ideas and you find my solution very helpful.

2006 Pontiac G6 front wheel vibration


sounds like your front end is worn out and yes tie rod ends are a common source of this problem along with out of balance tires and seperated tire cords, any tire store will inspect your car for free and give you an estimate to repair.

2006 Pontiac G6 wheel vibration


Tie rod ends do not have bushings (ball and socket like your hip). If vibration begins at 50-55 but goes away at slightly higher speed, it could be caused by wheel balance. Once balance has been checked jack up each front wheel and shake them back and forth and check for any loose steering components. If reasonably tight, My guess is that you have a bad hub bearing. If you don't know how to change them, get a manual to guide you (chiltons or haynes are OK for this). Pretty much it is a bolt out bolt in procedure and not terribly difficult except that sometimes the hub is rusted in and is a bear to get out. Need any help with that, just ask.
Note...many bad hub bearings show no obvious defects...but can create a strong vibration...just determine which side is noisy and change it. Scrapyard parts are inexpensive and generally fairly reliable as replacements.

Wheel Shaking


Sounds like the tie rod is worn. It is common when a CV shaft goes bad that it wears out the tie rods as well. the tie rods hold the wheel in posiition and that why you get the movement 3cm left to right. The tie rod is on the upper part of the wheel hub and if you grab it where it meets the wheel, give it a good shake. If there is movement replace it.

03 Trailblazer Front End Noise/Vibration


I had similar problem with my 03 trailblazer. It had a low dull hum in the front end with a little vibration being felt in gas pedal. Noise increased over a couple weeks and was louder turning to the left and quiter turning to right. A GM mechanic friend of mine replaced the front right hub and took care of the problem. Hub was about $160 at Autozone.
