Generally, if you feel a shake in the steering wheel, the problem is up front. If the shake is felt more in your seat, it’s coming from the rear. Front possible causes: Out of balance or out of round tires. Bent wheel. Worn/loose suspension components like ball joints or tie rods. Rear possible causes: Drive shaft. U-joints. Out or round tire or bent wheel. Bent axle. If you would like, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office, and diagnose the shaking.
