High speed shaking

Asked by Sep 07, 2017 at 02:04 PM about the 2007 Toyota Avalon Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm going to start with the beginning because there
has been three types of shaking I've had with every
different fix. When I first bought my car there was a
slight shake at highway speeds. Nothing terrible but
nerving. I drove it with the shake from Grand Rapids
Michigan to Minneapolis Minnesota and back. I'm
sure it was my tires/ rotors because they were quite
close to bald. I get new tires brakes a rotors within
the week and all normal steering problems fixed
and shaking at low speeds gone. Driving this on the
freeway there was a slightest shake from what I
remember. Not 100% sure. I take my car in to get
inspected for Lyft and Uber and I had a leaking CV
boot. Also according to Bell Tire I needed new tie
rods(sp?). I took it to another mechanic and he said
no just the boots. I had those changed and let my
car sit at home for 7 days till I could get in for a
alignment. After that I take it straight to the freeway
and again, slight shaking. It feels like it's the front
drivers side, it also may be because that's were I
sit. And today I think it is slightly worsen. I feel it at
45mpr, nothing serious. And from 68-73 it pretty
noticeable. 74-78 it's less aggressive but faster. 79+
it's uncomfortable. My manager says it might be a
ball joint but neither mechanic shop noticed that.
Could it be the ti rod that bell tire was talking
about? Hep would be greatly appreciated!

Or control arm bushings or tires/wheels may still be out of balance. Make sure the wheels are not impact wrenched on as this will warp your new rotors, must be torqued on to spec, never over tightened. I would take it to another shop and tell them to re-check balance, and do a detailed check on the suspension front and rear. and rear brakes condition too.
