Check the steering for anything that is loose and also check the front tires for a broken belt in the tires. Does it happen when you apply the brakes or as you are driving down the road. If it happens when applying the brakes check the brakes for worn out brake pads. Hope this helps.

Mistubishi Magan 1996 TE 2D42. IF the suspension springs are lowered 2, how does this effect the angle of the CV shafts ?


because cv joints do not have the same characteristics as "U" joints altering their angles by lowering or raising the body will not create vibrations when spinning
what will affect performance is bad engine mounts , faulty suspension rubbers and incorrect wheel alignment settings for the lowered car
when a car is lowered the wheel alignment starts at the rear wheels first then moves to the front wheels

My first guess would be a bad tire. You could have the tires rotated front to back to see if the problem stops.

Car makes a rattle noise on the littlest bump should I be concerned


Probably not, but we can't say until it is identified.
A very common cause of this in Camrys is that the rear suspension anti-sway bar retainer bushings become worn. See p 95
http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/sa.pdf

If you think the noise is more to the front then maybe a ball joint is worn, possibly the rack end ball joint or tie rod end.
Jack the front wheel up on each side in turn, grab the wheel at each side and shake it back and forth as hard as you can. If you hear or feel looseness, the problem is in the steering, as above.
Then shake the wheel while holding it at top and bottom. If you feel looseness then, the problem is in the front suspension joints somewhere.
Repeat this on the other front wheel. Let it down on the ground, then bounce each front corner up and down as hard as you can (you might have to have a second person with you doing this). If you hear a clunk or feel excessive bounciness, it is the shock absorber strut making noises. When bouncing like this, the car should resist, and not keep bouncing when you let go.

Knocking sound at steering wheel during turning of mistubishi adventure


It sounds like a ball joint is worn, possibly the rack end ball joint or tie rod end.
With the bumpy ride it could also be that the front shock absorber has failed.
Jack the front wheel up on each side in turn, grab the wheel at each side and shake it back and forth as hard as you can. If you hear or feel looseness, the problem is in the steering, as above.
Then shake the wheel while holding it at top and bottom. If you feel looseness then, the problem is in the front suspension wishbones.
Repeat this on the other front wheel. Let it down on the ground, then bounce each front corner up and down as hard as you can (you might have to have a second person with you doing this). If you hear a clunk or feel excessive bounciness, it is the shock absorber. When bouncing like this, the car should resist, and not keep bouncing when you let go.

When I get up to speeds over 50 my steering wheel shakes, feels like front end bouncing, when Im at 45 or lower it doesnt do it, what is the problem?


Check the power steering fluid, which i doubt. my only other suggestion is use 93 level gas the high octane should help with the shakes.

I just bought a 2002 escalade when i get on the freway with speed the whole consol shakes also the stearing wheel shakes and every lil bump you can feel it its the most unconfortable drive ever . i owned...


To check the shocks bounce the truck 3 times and let it go. It should rise past level and come back to level and stop. If it doesn't then the shock on that wheel is bad. Don't be shy when you bounce it, I use my knee on the bumper and drive it down. Do each wheel.
When you have that done, jack up 1 front wheel. Spin it and watch the tread near the ground. It should spin freely with no wobble. If it wobbles sideways at one spot you likely have a broken belt in the tire. Check both front ones for sure. After that grab the wheel top and bottom and move it in and out. There should be no movement. If there is you have a bad ball joint or possibly a wheel bearing. You'll need someone to watch to see what moves to tell the difference. Then grab the wheel at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock and try to move it in and out. Again there should be no movement, unless the steering wheel turns. If the wheel moves and not the steering wheel, you have bad tie rod ends that need replacing. Then do the other front wheel.
It's also possible that you need a front end alignment. If you have to replace ball joints or tie rod ends, then get it aligned after you repair it.
Hope this helps.

Feel shake in the floor and steering wheel at around 70 mph and a slight turn on the steering wheel you can feel it a little more. what parts could cause this? already had the wheel balances checked.


Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

I have just bought a Suzuki Vitara 4u2, T Reg. Is it normal to feel like your swaying and jumpin all over the road when your driving it??


Hmmm, it's normal for the ride in a 4wd to feel "different" they feel like they wallow a bit in turns and shudder a bit over bumps compared to a car, but it should not be jumping all over the road! try the old suspension test, go to each corner of the car and give it a good hard push down and let go, if the car comes back up and setles, all is good, if it doesn't go down or if it bounces up and down, the shocks/struts need replacing. Also try grabbing each of the front wheels and trying to move them left to right, then up and down, if there is any clunking or movement (without the steering wheel moving) there is a problem. left and right wobble indicates steering problems, up/down wobble indicates a wheel bearing broblem.
