drive a 1997 dodge intrepid. its got 125000 miles on it, and it just started shakeing from the front end recently when i go over 60, have to drive on the freeway alot so i do have to go over 60. what might it be, a bearing? how much might this cost to get fixed?

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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
