Hey all, Iím reaching out to the knowledge well we have here for some input on what could be causing a random wheel vibration at speeds 60mph +.
Here is the skinny:
At highway speeds I get a random vibration in the front end that comes and goes. Sometimes itís after a bump or sweeping corner and other times it just happens. It will last for 5 Ė 30 sec then fades out. Nothing severe, just bounces the steering wheel a tad. This has been going on for about 3 weeks now. My immediate thought is wheel bearing however I replaced both the fronts about 3300 miles ago. I also suspected my tires as they were about at the end of their lifespan and we slightly cupped. I got 4 new tires last weekend at that did lessen the vibration, but did not eliminate it. The vibration also seems to go away when the 4x4 in engaged.
Itís clearly coming from the front wheel assemblies somewhereÖ Iím wondering if I need an alignment? I got under the front end and poked around looking at the CV shafts, ball joints, breaks, etc, and everything appears to be OK...
Could anyone point me to other things to look at or check out before bringing it into the shop?
Thanks in advance!
