My passenger wheel on the right side is vibrating at speeds of 45-55 mph. I took it to a shop and they charged me $359 to fix the control arm on that side and it is still doing the same thing it was doing before which they said should fix the problem. I took it to a couple other shops and they told me that it might be my ball joints. i know i definitely need new struts on all sides. What could be making my car tire shake like this. I'm very lost i don't want to spend another 300 on something that doesn't fix the problem.
Has anyone checked the simple things like tire balance, is the rim bent, is there a shifted belt in the tire, Is the tire worn evenly?
I did get a tire balance. I didn't check the rim but I havn't had anyone bring it up to me. I do have two new tires to put on and I need a camber alignment. I did think it was the tire but I had them rotated and the problem is still there in the front.
If the camber is out, that can cause a vibration.
If I get an alignment to see if that fixes it.. And say it still makes that noise so I do the ball joints.. Will I have to get another alignment ?
The tire feels kinda wobbly I would say.
What do you mean by the tire feels wobbly? How did you check it? As far as the alignment, I would recommend having it checked if you replace the ball joints. However, it isn't a requirement. As far as the ball joints, check to see if there is excessive play in them. Don't replace them unless you know they are bad.
