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.

When driving around at any speed on highway my car feels like gliding It feels like I'm going to lose control and sometimes when I brake coming down hill the front end shakes violently. then will stop


This is an indication of a strut issue. The shocks dampen the spring in the strut assembly. IF you have loose fastening components or bushings or a bad shock in the strut you can get a violent shudder when you apply brakes on a down hill direction.

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

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.

Can you feel the wobble also ? Check the tie rod ends and steering
items at the bottom of the van. if it is just a sound, I would not know where it would be coming from.

Death Wobble


This is most likely an alignment issue. When you go to replace your tires, ask them to also do a total alignment and it should get rid of the problem.

Front Left side wobbly and there is a squeeky noise when driving


Have you checked the tires ?
Sometimes a wobble can be a broken belt inside the tire tread.
Or it could be something loose in the hub.
You could also switch the front and rear tire to see if the wobble moves.

Front end wobble at higher speed nothing wrong with tierods everything seems tight jacked it up bushings bearings fine does not push or pull under 90 km and lower just out of the blue it will start to...


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!
