Asked by Apr 28, 2013 at 09:43 AM about the 2006 Buick Lucerne

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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~

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~
