2000 Ford Explorer - Violent Shaking in steering after hitting bump or 60+ mph
I just had vehicle inspected and replaced the wheel hub assemblies on the front Left and Right wheels in order to pass. Now while driving strong shaking occurs occasionally when over 60+ mph or at any time after a hit a bump in the road. have to slow down below 30 for it to stop.
My '98 did this and it turned out to be the combination of poor wheel balance, worn ball joints and too high tire pressure. Pulled the tire pressure down to and the problem "went away". You should be so lucky.
Ball joints, tie rod ends, the rack and it's mount are suspects, along with bent wheels and fubar'd tires.
