Check your engine mounts. KIA seems to have problems with those. i replaced both transmission and engine/transmission mounts after 80k and all of that wobbling stopped.

I have Toyota 2006 sienna and front right wheel shakes or wobbles ... I have new front tires and balanced.. but still wobbles a little...please any thoughts?

Hi Scott.
Try switching the wheels from left to right side and see if the wobble goes with it.
If not, look for a worn tie rod end or other suspension component.
If wobble goes to left side, look for bent rim.

Death wobble jeep

Then your done

All jeep vehicles have had the wobble thing for decades

Unless you waste money on professionals attempting to
find the reasons for the issues, the only way to resolve it,
is start taking the front suspension apart completely & find
something that is worn,basically go thru the entire front end
including the steering & then check out the rear suspension real good

Not likely your working on your own vehicle or paying anyone,
at least any one knowledgeable enough to resolve things

Try the web sites or forums that are jeep related

Keep in mind they are mostly kids that don't know what
they are asking or talking about.

Lots and lots of things can do this. I would recommend having the knocking sound investigated as the main concern, possibly by a good front-end shop. It could be a c-v joint or bad hub bearing which can allow a wobble in the front brake rotors. This would allow what you call a "judder".

Sometimes rust can form on the brake rotors while the car is parked. This is a weather related problem and if rust is the cause it can wear off to a smooth surface with driving. But a badly pitted rotor will need resurfacing or replacing. It can produce a scuffing sound, but not a knock.

Front end wobble,have replaced rotors & pads but still has a wobble.

Discribe your version of wobble. In steering wheel,front suspension? Did you have this checked out by a shop, who gave up on it? Are the brakes related?

2000 Hyundai Sonata front end wobbles.

put the front tires on the back and see if it changes.
alot of times,if the suspension is defective it wears the tires uneven ,out of round.
check and make sure the wheel nuts are tight and torqued properly.
alot of techs use just the gun,and not a torque stick and overtighten the wheel nuts.

Very bad shaking after hitting a bump

this is known as death wobble because it feels like you are going to die but slowing down will end it.

The cause for death wobble are:
  1. Worn or loose tie rod ends on your steering linkage.
  2. Worn or loose trackbar bushings or tie rod ends on the trackbar itself.
  3. front end needs alignment.
  4. and many others but the common reasons are listed above.
try to realign the front end. If it doesnt help, then you do indeed have worn steering / suspension components.
