Having problems with your 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe ?

Tahoe 2001 4 wheel drive. above 60 miles an hour when driving over a bridge abunkment?? The front end shakes violently, my husband said the car felt like it was going to break apart. No one seems to realize the problem and how to fix it. I have new shocks. The bearings were mentioned recently and the CV joint, please help if anyone is familiar with this issue. It's scary and dangerous, we have 4 kids riding with us when this occurs!! Please help if possible with suggestions. Thanks

Answers :

You might jack up the truck on the side, leaving one front wheel on the ground, the other suspended.\012Have someone watch the steering components close to the suspended wheel while another moves the steering back and forth at a medium rate and look for 'unnatural' movements of joints.\012Do both sides to check.\012
\012This sounds like a tie rod end that is shot and these are fairly easy to spot since the joint will move in directions that are obviously wrong.\012
\012The reason it doesn't want to stop is that when one wheel is no longer being held rigidly, it will 'oscillate' causing the violent shaking. The boost from power steering worsens the problem.\012It can be dangerous; a friend had a worn tie rod end come apart while barreling down the Freeway. Steering with one wheel doesn't work. He survived but no longer ignores the signs. \012
\012If you had brought the truck to a decent front-end alignment shop, they would have found this while trying (it doesn't work) to align it.
