Violent Shaking in Wheels felt in my stering wheel
My 1997 Chevy Tahoe 4X4 LT 5.7 Recently began to have the front wheels shake violently and as well as have a whining sound coming from my wheels as I turn them. They do not shake all the time but sometimes the shake becomes rather violent. It looks like I might have a leak coming from my powersteering resevior, would that cause my wheels to shake like that? its only been shaken since Saturday evening, I didnt drive it much sunday but experienced today on the way to work.

typically front end shake is going to come from a couple of areas.
warn front end suspension parts (idler, pitman, ball joints etc)
Tire balance (whether it be balance or tire belt seperating)David

X2 on tire balance.
The wine you hear when you turn maybe just a low level in the power steering resevoir.

Its called "death wobble" lol
its why i sold my jeep and said no more solid axle ever again.
on our trucks with individual front suspension it can only be a few things.
does your truck have a lift?
usually it can be contributed to (in order of cheapness to fix)
A frame bushings
basically that wobble means your front suspension is shot.Gas was $1.83 when Obama took office.....

i agree that it could be a tire problem. iv seen broken belts cause a nasty "wobble", iv also seen them cause more of a shake, are you in a place wehre you have snow and could there be snow/mud in a rim (cuasing them out of balance)? in fFWD cars iv seen worn tierod ends cause a shake, its pluasable taht a loose steering componant will cause a shake as well."i dont think you got the picture. i got a beautiful picture. this baby happens to have an extra turn of speed, which is the only thing i care about. you dont understnad what happens do you? they make cars. they make 'em exactly the same way. one or two of 'em turn out to be something special. nobody knows why. i know why. i may be kiddin' myself, but i think i can make somethin' out of that sad little bucket of bolts." ~ Tennessee Steinmetz
