The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.

Vibration on 2004 Cadillac Deville


If a hub bearing was bad, it almost always would make noise, more so when changing lanes at higher speed. Outer CV joints make a loud low pitched rattle when turning (corners). Inner CV joints raise hell at high speed- bad shake! Sway links affect cornering and clunk when hitting rough patches of road surface.
Is the vibration worse at 65 than at 50? If so, you are dealing with a wheel balance situation. Find an old time front end shop that will check the balance on the vehicle. You will have to turn off the traction control to do this or use an on-the-car wheel balancer.
If you feel it at some low speeds at it comes back at other higher speeds, then you are dealing with tire roundness. Possible more than 1. More common than we would like.

Driving from 60 mpg to 70 mpg the car vibrates


I have the same problem on a Prius 2013 which is new. I've had it to the dealer many times. Front tires were replaced. Tires were balanced several times. Toyota says this is normal. I had a 2008 Prius which did not have this problem. No way is this normal to have the car vibrate and shudder between 60 & 70. Above 70 it smooths out. I like to drive at 65 and that is where the vibration is the worst. I can feel it in the steering wheel, the seat and the floor. My GPS on the dash shakes back and forth

Hi, I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla the steering wheel vibrates at any speed.Did wheel alignment but aint got better. Pls advise. Cheers, Anks


Vibration or a "shimmey" is an indication that the tires need to be balanced. This is not related to the wheel alignment you had done A poorly balanced tire will vibrate on its own, transferring the vibration all the way through the steering wheel. Have the tires balanced. If this doesn't fixy your issue, then the problem lies between the rotors (could have a warped rotor) and the rack and pinion. Best of luck on your problem.

Steering Problem in Toyota Prius


This violent shaking where you can stop it by holding the steering wheel in my experience is due to a BAD rack and pinion. Replace rack and that will solve this problem. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
