SOURCE: My Silverado front end wobbles at any speed, not affected braking

Couple of checks , mud in front rims will give you a wobble. Front tire cord seperation or loose wheel nuts. , Wore out tie rod end, front wheel bearing play, or a weight has fallen off the rim and it needs balancing. If it is vibrating your steering wheel, have the front end looked at right away.

I own a 23 Ford t bucket,i had a new front spring and shocks put on and now sometimes when I take off the front wheels start to wobble and I have to slow down for them to stop,what should I have done


first check the lug nuts on the wheels. if tight raise the car and try to turn the tires by hand. if a noise or wobble you have bad suspension parts or loose part.

Tire wobbles when driving? Check this explanation why it does that


While driving you start to slow down and it feels like a tire is loose and wobbling? That is caused by a broken steel belt in the tire. You will need to replace the tire ASAP!! The tires with broken belts expolde at high driving speeds which is very dangerous

When a steering stabilizer goes bad, it will produce the exact wobble you have described. The one where you NEED to slow down to stop it, and then its fine. Its called "Death Wobble" in the car/truck enthusiast world.

Have you checked that? Typically called a steering stabilizer / steering dampener.

Good luck!

99 suburban wobble after changing tie rods


You can check for a bad wheel bearing, they are know to cause a nasty wobble and a whiring type noise. You can do this by raising the car, then shimmy the wheel from left to right, Up and down. If free play is present the your bearing are bad.

2007 jeep wrangler shakes uncontrollaby after


When you say shakes i am guessing the steering wheel. If it is the steering wheel shaking, it's know as the death wobble. Check the front steering components, look for worn or broken parts. Most common for death wobble are the tie rod ends, idler arm and pitmen arm. look for play along the track bars and check the ball joints. The other thing too that will cause a death wobble is a bad alignment. there may be negative or no caster at all which would give you a death wobble. Check all of the above and keep me posted. Good luck and be safe
