Greetings. I am in need of some assistance diagnosing a steering wheel
shake in my Safari. The steering wheel shakes in an up/down direction once
the vehicle reaches 67 mph and continues through higher speeds. Here is
what I have done so far:
- Rotate and balance tires
- Check alignment
- New front brakes and turned rotors
- New front bearings, Timken
- New shocks (4)
- New engine mounts, both were broken, had them replaced this week.
- The Auto Service Center said the suspension looks good and tight.
After having the motor mounts replaced, the shake is subdued, but definitely
still there. It's as if what ever is causing the shake, was magnified by
the broken motor mounts.
The tires are Goodyear Integrity and have about 20,000 miles. However, a
slight shake existed even when the new tires were installed. One Goodyear
dealer said I had two bent wheels, but another dealer said my tires were out
of round. So, I bought the Integrity's.
Aside from buying new wheels and tires, I do not know what else to try. Can
anyone offer any suggestions of what to look at?
