If the steering wheel shakes while applying the brakes, you have warped brake rotors, and they need to be replaced. A shake all of the time may also be another issue, as in tires out of round, out of balance, or bad tie rod ends.

Getting ***** wobbles through the steering wheel. Also a bouncing bad shaking feel once loaded


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.

It sounds like somethhing is grinding when going down the road, and gets worse when i make a curve in the road. Also when i come to a stop my anti lock brakes kick in on a dry road. What could this be?


Sounds like you have a wheel bearing starting to go bad. If it gets worse when you turn left than the right side is usually bad. If it gets worse when turning right than the left is usually bad. Sometimes you can jack up the vehicle and spin the wheels by hand and hear/feel the bad wheel bearing. Also sometimes you can grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position and push/pull and feel the tire move. Another indication that the wheel bearing is bad.

Wheel shaking?


There are many things that can cause front end vibrations, I will give you a list and hopefully the information provided will allow you to narrow it down. Usaully front end shake is caused by a tire that either has a shifted belt in the tire or the tire weights could have falled off and the tire and wheel must be rebalanced, another reason for shake is if the shake occurs when applying the brakes it is a warped rotor and the brakes must be replace in the front end along with new rotor installed, the last thing that it could be is a loose or worn out front end part perhaps a tierod end. If i was you I would try rotating the tires from the front to the back and see if the shaking goes away if it does it is most likely a bad tire (shifted belt) or the tire needs to be rebalanced at a auto garage. after checking that first then jack up the front and grab the wheel and move it back and forth up the down to check for play or loosness, as I said if the shaking occurs while applying the brakes replace the brakes and rotors.

Front end shimmy


Sounds like you may have some large tires on the Jeep. Check the stabilizer rod that attaches to the frame and down to the front differential. It may be loose or have worn bushings. This would cause the front end to shake at times. You probably get this problem to go away by applying the brakes a little or slowing down quickly to a certain speed. If that is the case check the rod and bushings. Good luck.
