VIOLENT VIBRATION WHILE DRIVING

1991 Suzuki Sierra

Shakes or Wobbles problem
1991 Suzuki Sierra 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles

Hi, I have a 1991 Suzuki Sierra with 200000km on it. Over the last few months it has developed a violent wobble while accelerating or deccelerating through 40-60km. It is worse when it is cold. It started as a small shudder but now the steering wheel is violently thrown from side to side and it feels like the car is jumping off the road. The car doesnt noticeably move from side to side though, even though the steering wheel does and when stopped there is a lot of play in the steering wheel (could be a seperate problem). What do you think is the cause and how much roughly to fix it?

HI there,

You best get the steering and suspension checked ASAP as it sounds as if something is about to let go and if it dose you may loose your steering, get it inspected now.
