OK, so I had these bent rims from the previous owner that curbed the crap out of them... so i swapped them to some steelies because i was getting nasty shakes from them... or so i thought. Got the new rims, and still getting the shakes, so I thought next the problem was warped rotors... got them replaced under warranty... still shaking and shuttering... Now that I think about it, the shaking only seems to happen sometimes when doing 60ish, and 120ish... and sometimes when i'm doing that speed it doesn't happen. Sometimes when i brake, I get feedback like my rotors are warped, but then sometimes it doesn't do it, and the other thing that is driving me nuts is when i pull into my driveway, sometimes it feels and sounds like my whole front suspension system is loose, and rattles like hell. Any ideas? PLEASE!!!!

lift the car with a jack, firmly grab the lifted wheel, shake it (pull w. left hand, push with the right type motion), if there is excessive play then its time to change the tie rods.

Thanks, I will check that. If it was a loose brake pad, or unbalanced wheel, it would have done it all the time, right?

I think you need to go somewhere else because stealerships don't even charge that much. :icon_eek:
