    Most often that's caused by worn ball joints but, all suspension components should be carefully checked for wear as well.

SOURCE: the front end and steering wheel shakes when i hit a hole or bump

This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!

I had a truck at work that did the same thing. Only if you hit a pothole. In my case the front tires were way out of balance. Hope it's something that simple.

That and other bushings and idler arms worn. I would suggest a free inspection somewhere for them to show you what needs repaired.

Is there a recall on frame on my 2004 chevy colorado frame is rusting out has holes in frame


rust is from the salt used on winter roads and there is no recall for that problem
as the repair will cost more than the car is worth , consider updating to a rust free model

I hit a pot hole and my battery died the next morning. I got it tested and it was bad. I bent both right side wheels after hitting a pot hole. My car won't stay charged. Active steering is off too.


I would check all earth wire on your car , as it sounds if there is a bad earth wire or a broken one ., this would explain your battery going flat and the flat battery would probably cause your problem with the steering as it will probably be an electric steering pump

I changed my rear brake shoes on my 2004 Chevy Colorado about 8 months ago i haven't had any issues with them. But lately when i start up my truck and drive off right when i step on the brakes to come to...


Assuming you have drums in the back,you don't get much in the way of squealing.
I would say the quality of the brake lining is not what you want.
Also you need a clean machined surface on the drums

I would possibly turn the drums, light skim cut,if never done since new
I would use 60 then and 80 grit sand paper on the linings
You need all brakes parts to move correctly,no rust anywhere
and things lubed

Check the parking cables for releasing

If you still have issues,then it is the brake material.

I would only do this work myself
I have never had a brake issues at all, in 47 years
All brake issues are done professionally. Not knocking them,
I just never have issues.
