Truck is shaking while driving slow and at 45 mph

Postby MikeyP [OP] » Dec 06 2011, 2:45am

Hey guys in new here, not sure where this should exactly go but j think it will fit well here. My truck is shaking, it does not do it under acceleration, only while driving real slow, maybe 5 to 10 mph, and then at exactly 45 to 48 mph. I'm not sure where to start on this one nor have I ever dealt with this before. Could it be something going bad up front? Or an in-balanced tire? Which I have checked. Have any of you had any experiences like this? And btw it's a 2001 silverado 4x4. Any suggestions would be appreciated thanks guys!

Sounde like a wheel ballance problem. With it happening as slow as you say, it could be a tire has a belt that is seperating.

See the tires are brand new. Toyo at's too so they r good tires, I'll run it by les Schwab and see what they say but I don't recall it doing this after I got the tires on until now.

How new are the tires? Literaly brand new, or have you had them on a month or so? You could have thrown a weight off, causing them to become unballanced. If you hit a pothole or curb you could have damaged a tire as well.

Couldn't this also be a transmission problem?

It doesnt not sound like a transmission problem from the symptoms he describes.

Yeah man transmission shifts smooth and the fluid is not discolored or anything. And I have had the tires for roughly 2 months. This scares me now that someone brought up transmission issues...

I just went through the same problem and it turned out to be a bad belt in one of my tires, had just bought a set of bridgestones and noticed around 45 it wasnt right.

I had kind of the same issue with a F%%% work van that the co had 2 tires replaced, 2 originals. Kept telling the garage when it went in for that there was a vibration,they would rotate and balance but it just moved around. Finally the slipped belt got worse and they replaced the other tires, took care of the problem. Have the place where you bought the tires swap them with another vehicle and see if it goes away.

Truck is shaking while driving slow and at 45 mph

Postby MikeyP [OP] » Dec 07 2011, 10:32pm

So I took my truck in to get the tires looked at today. Whoever did balance the tires did a cheap job, so they rebalanced them perfectly and the tires are in exceptional condition as well. BUT as we had the rig in the air we noticed that the passenger side rear inside brake pad was worn down to nothing, and the outside pad had normal wear. Is this a symptom of a frozen caliper? It would make sense if that pad was constantly riding on the rotor, which at this point is obviously warped, causing the truck to shake? Any suggestions?
