My vehicle has 120,000 miles. Now I am getting a front shimmy at low speed, 20-30 mph. Possible problems?


Could be several things, including a bad tire or bent rim.
A shimmy usually starts after you hit a bump, which would point to a loose tie rod end or ball joint instead of the tire/rim.

Too much brake dust


The build up of brake dust is from the use of organic brake pads. If you do not want to have to constantly clean your wheels you need to switch to ceramic pads. As for the glob of grease, I think I would check your CV joints at the end of your axle. There isn't too many places that hold a "huge" glob of grease on a modern vehicle.

I put new brakes and rotors on my jeep 2000 Grand Cherokee 4x4 and now there is a whine in the front. What can cause this?


If it is only when your foot is on the brake pedal: A lot of new rotors come with a thin layer of wax on them to prevent rust, and so they must be cleaned before the installation with soap and water, and dried thoroughly
If it is only when you apply/release the brake pedal: You need to apply a small amount of grease to the caliper bolts (not the threaded part but the slide pin that is the long smooth part). There is a specific type of grease for this you can get at your local auto parts store.
If it is all the time: Drive around the block, then remove the front wheels and look for a shiny spot on the inside of the rim, or any other components in the area, sometimes the dust plate between the hub and the caliper gets a little bent when you do a brake job, and will grind on the inside of the rim a little bit.

Saab 95, dirty front wheels (brake fluid?)


Is this oily or a dry dust? I suspect that since it is both wheels, it is caused by 'brake dust' which is just residue from the linings as the brakes wear. The solution is to install ceramic brake pads to eliminate the unsightly problem, however, if this is the problem. it is only visual, it does not affect the performance. Washing the wheels thoroughly, then applying wax to them will make future clean up easier. If the residue is oily or greasy, you probably have issues with an axle seal leaking. In that case it should be checked soon, as wheel bearing failure can result if too much grease is lost.

Grease leaking from the front passenger


Inner, (Large), wheel bearing has failed. This has caused the grease seal to fail.
Solution is to replace the bearing, and seal.

1.Check the bearing race in the brake rotor. If any pits, scoring, or other evidence of break down is present, the bearing race must be replaced also.

2.Check the outer wheel bearing and bearing race also. The inner bearing receives the most wear, but cleaning, and inspection of both bearings, and races is a standard procedure.

3.Observe the area on the spindle where the grease seal contacts. Insure that the spindle area is of good repair, and no scoring is evident.

The Black residue that you observe is grease mixed with brake dust.

The vehicle must be jacked up in the front, with safety stands placed in the proper area on both sides. Wheel chocks should be used behind the rear tires. The vehicle should be on a flat hard surface.

The wheel/tire is removed, then the brake caliper. The caliper is not removed from the brake hose, but hung from a hanger device, from the frame of the vehicle. (Small rubber tie down strap? Wire clothes hanger?)

Then the dust cap is removed, cotter pin, and spindle nut. Ease the brake rotor out, be ready to catch the outer bearing. Remove the brake rotor.

Rotor laying on two small wood blocks, (2x4's? 4x4?), blocks under rotor face. (Where the brake pads rub against)
Blocks placed so area of grease seal is not resting on them. Rotor is laying on blocks with outside of rotor facing up. (Outside of rotor faces outside of Tahoe)

Take a long punch, and tap out the grease seal from the inside of the rotor. Through the hole where the spindle goes through. Be careful that the punch is resting on the metal ring of the seal, and not the bearing race edge.

Steering wheel shimmys at speeds 35 and up just changed rotors and pads no play in new wheel bearings doesnt shimmy when i brake though. any help would help greatly thanks


If it shimmies with the brakes applied, it's a rotor problem....but like you say, it shimmies just at a certain speed with no brakes applied, check tires for out-of-roundness. If they look ok, you are looking at a balance problem with the tires.

Shimmy in front end


Try greasing the Idler arm and Tie rod ends. The grease will take some of the play out and if the shimmy is gone then it's time to replace steering components. Common is the Idler and Pitmen arm that causes the shimmying.
If the shimmy is still there, then it's time for a front wheel alignment. As the suburban get's older, the suspension settles down lower each year and the geometry to the front steering system may need to be adjusted for that. On the 4X4 the ride height can be adjusted by turning the torsion bars to achieve the proper ride height again, as for the 2WD then it's going to be a coil spring replacement. 
The easy way out is to just adjust the front wheel alingment to compensate for the shimmying. ]
Good luck and hope this helps. Just make sure you find a font end person who knows what he or she is doing and not by what a machine is telling it to do. The tech must know that there must be an angel to the tie rod end so when you go over a bump you don't get what they call a bump steer where the truck will want to pull to one side.

Steering shimmy when brakes applied


It sounds like either warped rotors or grease/oil on the pads. Jack up the front and pull the wheels off. Turn the rotors by hand to see if the rotors turn freely, then drag, then turn freely. If there is no grease or oil on the rotor surfaces, you need to either turn or replace the rotors. The job is a royal pain in the ****, so you may want to take it to a reputable shop.

Truck shakes when braking.


The problem could be from the brake disk in the front that is worped, try different brake pads with different material that could have less brake dust on the rims
