Front0-end Shaking


Recommended Posts

I have a 94 gs300 and when I start to drive the front end shakes badly like the steering wheel is about to fall off, but after I get over 60mph for about 10minutes the car stops shaking mad.gif Also the damn traction light comes too after driving! Does any one have any suggestions?

For the front end shaking you have to check the basics:

* Tire Condition

* Tire Pressure

* Wheel Condition (Bent?)

* Lug Nuts Properly Torqued

* Balance (Weights missing?)

* Front End Alignment

GS cars are also very sensitive to bad tires. Sometimes it looks like you have good tread when you view the outside edge of the tires but as you look toward the inside edge you may find you are down to the reinforcement belts. Seen this dozens of times.

If you find the front end is out of alignment make sure to get all four (4) wheels done as this is a car that requires both front and rear end alignment.

Quick way to see if a front wheel is bent is to swap front right with rear right and front left with rear left then go for a test drive to see if shaking persists.
