most likely one or more of your brake rotors were warped (bent) stepping on the brake transfers this into a shake or vibration

SOURCE: right rear brake rotor gets hot and smokes after wheel vibration over 65 mph,

Sounds like rear wheels bearings are failing, allowing the rotor to make contact with the brake pads. Remove the brake pads and caliper, and check for wheel bearing play. The caliper and pads can mask a bearing problem, by keeping the play down to a minimum. until higher speeds are reached. It is a dangerous situation, with a potential for a serious auto accident.

While driving dwn the road i hve a bad shake in my steering wheel i have a 1999 gmc yukon


it sounds like the front tires need balancing.if you drive the truck slowly(creeping down the road at about 5mph)and lightly holding the steering wheel do you feel the steering wheel moving back and forth.this could indicate a bad belt in a tire where as a wheel imbalance won`t show up at this low of a speed,but a bad belt will.also have the front end checked for worn front end components and wheel bearings,this can cause a bad shake too.

My 99 jeep cherokee shakes in front end around 60mph


You didn't supply a lot of info but generally a consistent shake at a particular speed is caused by wheel balance being off. Before having the balance checked look at the wheels inside and outside. Many times you can get either mud or ice packed in that will disturb the balance.
If balance is good, then you need to have the front end components checked for wear. If the shaking is very violent, it may be what's known as "death wobble" which can stem from excessive wear of components, usually either ball joints or track bar but everything's suspect. If you have that you can't mistake it as the steering wheel feels like it is trying to rip right out of your hands!!!.

1999 Jeep-violent shaking of steering wheel when braking at 55 mph and then stops when speed lowers to say 40 mph. Only on highway, not streets. When first happened, installed new rotors and brakes, but...


1. out of balance tire because it sounds speed spacific.
2. worst of all! Loose lug nuts or possibly loose spindle nut. (you will need to lift the wheel off the ground to tell)
3. worn linkages i.e. ball joints, steering linkage, anything that would allow play in the front wheels.

When driving the car shakes violently...when turn


It could be tires need balanced, but more likely it's one of your cv joints. That is basically a "drive shaft" on front wheel drive vehicles.

Shake in steering wheel


I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.
