front end vibration
Hello i am new here so here is my problem . I have a 2006 ram 1500 quadcab 5.7 39000 miles . when i step on my brakes it shakes violently . I thought it might be front rotors but here is where i am puzzled , i also get a slight vibration just driving straight no brakes if i make a right turn and touch the brakes it shakes even worse also if i am in a parking lot and turn the wheel all the way to the left and go slow i get a sorta creaking noise also sometimes in the morning when its cold ill hear almost a whistle type noise but cant figure out where it is coming from . all of my virbration feel like its coming from my left front wheel , any help is greatly appreciated thank you

Whoops, I overlooked you had a 1500 sorry. Most common things for what you are describing are warped or unevenly worn rotors or your tires can be way out of balance.

Like above tires or rotors.

ok thanks guys i will be changing rotors and brakes tomorrow , and getting tires balanced also , I sure hope it fixes it

If the tires are cupped you'll still have your problem even after being balanced

Fatkat4 02-17-2012 07:01 PM
