I had snow packed inside a wheel and it shook. That was self fixing when the weather warmed up.This past June on the way home from the Carlisle Ford Nationals in my 88 Tbird Turbo Coupe, noticed significant steering wheel shake that cropped up under light to moderate braking out of nowhere. One minute fine, next brake applicaton shaking. Didnt bother to pull over and look for the issue as we were only 100 miles from home (all rural interstate the rest of the way home so almost no brake applications needed anyway).
Investigated the issue when we got home. Found a BIG chunk of thick grimey grease (around 4 inches in diameter and an inch deep) stuck to the inside of the left front rim. ZERO clue where the grease glob came from?? Cleaned the rim off, problem gone.
Back in the mid 70s had a steering wheel shake that got worse over a few days in my 71 Tbird 429 V8. Turned out to be shifted belt in a front tire. New tires fixed the issue.
You need to get a front end alignmentI was out on the freeway the other day and every time I got up past 50 mph, the steering wheel would start to wobble. not much, but definitely a noticeable amount. I was wondering if anyone had the same problem and knows how to fix?
One other possibility, worn inner or outer tie rods.Bad alignment will make the car pull left or right, or make the tire wear too much on the inside or outside of the tire, rebalancing them will tell you if they lost a weight or, if they can't balance either one, will tell you that possibly the steel belt in the tire moved, if it's your rotors, the steering wheel will have a left and right vibration only when you're foot is on the brake, unless the rotors are seriously warped, which is really hard to do with vented and thick rotors. The Only other thing it can be is the bearings are going bad but you should hear a rumbling type of noise when you are cruising and it may make a rattling noise when you go over some bumps in the road, it Will get worse over time. Good Luck!
Balance all four wheels. Inspect all steering and suspension components for looseness, wear, or broken parts. Inspect the hubs for wheel bearing play.I was out on the freeway the other day and every time I got up past 50 mph, the steering wheel would start to wobble. not much, but definitely a noticeable amount.
