Shimmy / Vibration
Shimmy starts at about 5 to 10 mph and continues up to highway speed. Replaced all wheels/tires with spare, one at a time, with no change. Replaced both cv jounts with no change. Any ideas?
my first thought is out-of-balance tires...have them removed, cleaned and harmonically balanced~
if its kinda high-milage would inspect the control arm bushings and the steering rack tie rods and wheel tie rods, Lower ball joint has a fussy alignment, if you went to your alignment shop they'd tell you that it cannot be aligned on account of it being too worn~ macpherson struts are not canceling out the vibrations...this also could cause the problems~
Thank you, judge_roy.
Around 90k miles, judge_roy.
the mileage could be HARD miles or like my wife who's got 147,000 on her Prius and looks and smells brand new yet~, on the other hand a TRUCK is driven like a truck~ Buick...is probably grampa's car, good choice~ 90k is some drivin' hopefully took the time for maintenance items in all those miles~
