Check your tie rod ends, it sounds like they are wore out but hard for me to say without actually seeing it.
Hope this helps you some!
Have an awesome day

    i really hate to comment on this problem as I cant actually see it, if it is front wheel drive check your rack pinion and see if you have play in that wheel....if that dosnt seem to be a problem check your wheel bearing. Have you heard any noises from it?? I'm just trying my best to narrow it down basically blind.
    Tell me what kind of car we are working with also. That will help.

2007 dodge caliber rt slap stick put new tires on 3 months ago driver side front tire is worn cant let off wheel car pulls bad to the right side of the road


The popping could be from a bad CV axle joint, or a bad wheel bearing. Better get checked, sounds very worn. Raise the wheel on a jack and watch for play. Grab wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock, and shake back and forth-watch for play. Wheel bearing? CV joint -is boot still good? Ball joints at bottom of wheel attaching point to the control arm-check this for play, too.

1970 ford f250 shakes real bad when I let off the gas. Any ideas I'm stumped


it depends what shakes ? if it only dose it when your slowing right down without braking then it could be an engine mount. if your braking it could be many things from warped disks to track rod ends/ball joints/loose wheel bearings. try and trace the shake. front right-left/steering wheel/back right -left.checks to do are,jack car up and hold the top and bottom of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement/hold the sides of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement ( on all wheels ) grab engine and shake it while looking at both sides ( checking engine mounts ) shaking can be caused by a number of things even bad shockers. good luck

Why does my 1998 plymouth breeze sound like my right tire is going to fall off when i turn the wheel to the right? and its only the front drivers side!


You could have a bad wheel bearing/hub assembly, loose tie rod (inner or outer), or a loose ball joint. If you raise the vehicle (with lift or jack), shake the wheel left and right and if it seems to have any loose motion not controlled by the steering wheel, it will be one of those i just listed. Shaking top to bottom is usually an indicator of a bad wheel bearing while side to side will be one of the others.

I have a 1986 nissan safari that has developed a horrible shake in the steering. It is not a wheel balancing issue and appears to coming from the left hand side.


Jack it up (both front wheels off the ground) and move the driver's wheel in and out. Check the pitman arm while moving it and look for any excessive play in the components. I'd take a shot in the dark from here and say steering box. I've personally narrowed it down to just that on multiple Nissan Pick Ups. If I've helped, please rate my assistance.

Feel shake in the floor and steering wheel at around 70 mph and a slight turn on the steering wheel you can feel it a little more. what parts could cause this? already had the wheel balances checked.


Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

Side to side wheel play


It could be an indication of a bad wheel bearing assembly. Did you check the lug nuts to be sure they are tight? It could also be the tie rod assembly. I would take off the wheel and try to move the just the hub assembly. Do you hear any screeching/squealing noises? Any popping while you are driving? Are your tires wearing? All these are classic signs of a bad wheel bearing. Any decent tire/auto shop can put your car on a lift and check the wheel bearings.

Strange noise from front drivers side after approaching 30mph.


2 possibilities bearings or damaged rotor. Inspect the rotor, and you can jack the vechicle up just by that tire leaveing the tire free to turn. grab the wheel on the sides try and shake top to bottom in and out, then side to side in and out. If you have play more than likely its your hub bearings.

Growling noise


That sounds like a wheel bearing starting to go bad. Usually you'll get a rumbling sound that will increase in volume and sometimes pitch as the speed increases. A quick way to check for wheel bearing wear is to first determine if you hear it at the front or the rear. Once you know that (or at least have an idea which end it's at), see if the noise gets louder or quieter when you turn. If you make a right turn and the noise gets louder, the problem is on the left side of the vehicle, because you're loading the suspension on that side. If you then turn left at speed and the noise goes away or quiets down, you reinforce the fact that it's on the left side because you're unloading the suspension on that side.

When you've determined as best you can which side and which end of the vehicle the noise is on, you'll know which wheel to check. Jack up that corner of the vehicle, and grab the tire at the top and bottom. See if you can get it to move at all by shaking it. A good wheel bearing will allow no play whatsoever. If the bearing is going bad, you may see that you can "shake" the wheel while it's mounted on the hub.

If you have a hard time determining which wheel it is, jack up each corner and shake each wheel in turn and see if any of them shake while mounted on the truck. If you find one that does, you're most likely looking at replacing a wheel bearing.

Try this out and post up what you find, and we can take it from there.
