Constant shake/ vibration in front end

Asked by Jun 13, 2017 at 08:59 AM about the 2006 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This is what I've got done to try to fix the problem, rotated
tires, got front tires rebalanced, checked for bulging in
tires (techs found none). I'm beginning to think it's a wheel
bearing or cv boot because it's started to make a highish
pitched hum with every vibration. Vibration increases with
increase in speed. Any  ideas?

At what speed do you begin to hear....feel...this vibration? What gear are you in? When the vibration is as its worst...carefully place the transmission into neutral without stepping on the break pedal.

The vibration is at any speed starts from when I start rolling ends when I stop gets worse as you accelerate and the noise is the same just gets higher pitched and more rapid and I will do that today after work and i was gonna try switching my front right tire with the back right and see if I feel it in the back because the tech said the rim might be bent but he wasn't 100% sure


If you think the wheels are bent have your mechanic check them for runout.

He said there is some cupping on the tire but not enough to do what I am explaining and I'm not sure if it's bent was just gonna test that out because in theory I'd feel it more in back after swap if that was the problem

Rotated front right tire to the Right rear and right rear to the front will give update if any change tomorrow.

Put car in neutral while driving 40 mph didn't change anything


Cupping is a sign of problems. Once you find what is causing your problems you may need to replace the tires.

Swapping of tire didn't change anything so I'm clueless?


Old school method of diagnosis. Place the vehicle on 4 jack WEIGHT. This means the stands must be placed under the lower suspension arms and thus are ...Loaded. CAREFULLY.. take her up through the gears WHAT'S SHAKEN? Swap a shaker with a non shaker. Same side still shakes?'s not the tire...check suspension and axle joints....bearings. BTW......if you are indicating placing the vehicle I neutral does not change the vibration....I am ruling out motor mounts and other power train issues.
