i would geuss wheel out of balance or a bulge on the tire. second guess would be a cv axle. had a car that did this same thing the funny thing was is the cv didn't make any noise when turning but, above 50 it shook like crazy.

I'd also check the front tires for balance/separation.

Could be as simple as the tire balance or a bad tire. Hopefully that is all.

However, that series of cars had, afaik, some front end issues with premature wear and or failure of some components.

This was my Eagle Vision from the same car family, albeit a bit older. Lucky I was going slow in town after just turning a corner. You wouldn't want this to happen out on the highway/freeway.

I'd get it looked at right away. What is your safety and peace of mind worth?

Sounds reasonable, but bear in mind, there was no forewarning before the incident in the picture.

My 83 Buick Park Ave, which always rode great, like a Caddy or Lincoln started shaking really bad in the front end. The front right tire had a belt broke in it. Put new tires on it and rides great again.

Ya if it happens at a specific speed get the tires checked. I have had 4 tires do that to me now.

Like Whoareu99 said, with those cars it never hurts to give the front end a once over too. Its cheaper than a accident.

If you bring the car in to a shop, tell them it viberates, have them check out the tires and front end parts, then balance the tires. I am sure they wont charge any extra to check it over for you.

I have had broken belts in a tire and it did the same thing. I would also check to see how much sand/gravel is in the back side of the rim. I have had this happen alot but I grew up on a gravel road but even the sand they put down this time of year can get behind there.

Snow packed in the wheels is also another good one!

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
