Well ntb tells my dad the drivers side wheel baring is bad so we get a new one and replace it. And i went back and they couldn't get me in so 9 am tommorow i will get the front end aligned because it pulls to the right and see if that stops the shimmy and shake in the steering wheel. If that doesn't do it i will see about getting my wheels balanced well checked because they should be balanced. They have new tires on them. What else could it be its not the tie rods or ball joint the guy and my dad checked.
If you have had a vibration since day one and just got new tires, I would suspect that those wheels are bent. But either way steering wheel vibrations are normally from a tire/wheel out of balance.
vibration while braking at high speeds is a warped rotor. Usually the front rotors. The rear brakes can get warped rotors too, they are just harder to diagnose, depending on how the parking brake is setup.
The bearings were worn so we replaced them. We have had other cars shake in the steering and get the front end aligned and it stops. The tires and rims are about a month old with about 1500 miles on them. The stock rims and the oe wheels shake the steering wheel. its has 64000 miles on the car and i dont think the rims are bent. It has play in the steering too. So bushings in the front end wont cause the steering wheel to shake then what can it be???
I can understand if the wheel bearings were worn to replace them, but the only reason they mentioned that was to make a quick sale.
Unless your alignment is waaaaaay off and you can visually see the tire angled way out, I cannot see an alignment issue causing a vibration.
If the tires/wheels are properly balanced, new tires (assuming the tread isn't cupped/separated) and you still have a vibration just cruising, the only thing I can think of would be to look into balancing the drive shaft?
Shitty tires out of the box can easily cause a steering pull, I saw that all the time. Although they normally don't cause a vibration right out of the box, but I wouldn't rule it out.
I don't know, it is sometimes hard to diagnose things of this nature over the internet without actually being in the car to feel the vibration and to determine the type of driving conditions the vibration occurs in.
Worn bushings will just cause a squeaking noise or sometimes a "clunk" over bumps, because they allow the parts to move around when they should be nice and solid with the bushing doing its job.
