If the car shakes when stopping you probably have warp brake rotors (discs). Have a trusted mechanic inspect those brakes for safety sake. Define shimmy. Heavy braking in adverse weather/road conditions will cause the ABS to operate. The ABS works by alternately applying the brakes almost to lock-up and then releasing them. If the shimmy only happens in adverse weather conditions it could be that the ABS needs looking at but it's more likely that you probably need to improve your driving skills.
not usually. warped rotors will cause a vibration during braking.
Yes, it can. Take it for balance
If they are warped they can cause shaking when braking.
The shimmy sensation in a vehicles steering wheel could be from several things , but the foremost likely reason is the camber being out of adjustment, and a simple alighnment should solve the issue promptly
balanced or bent rim. 65;
the true is the shes braking up with you cause of some1 else.Personal experience
1 or more out of balance tires
actually that was the problem but thanks for trying
Tire(s) out of balance/old, bent wheel, etc.
Bad wheel alignment, perhaps balljoints worn out.
It could be your rims are bent. Or it could be the rotors are warped
Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine problem with ABS light Sounds like rotors may be out of round causing shimmy need to be resurfaced or replaced
You created a flat spot on the rear tires. Your car had a busted mount or bushing
No, warped rotors will cause vibration when braking.
Worn front end parts, suspension issues, slipped belt in the tires, tire balance problem.
what would cause a rubbing noise on drivers side front wheel especially when braking ( I replaced rotor and wheel bearings are good) ?
It would depend on the amount of tar stuck to the tire. A little wouldn't effect much but more will cause the tire to be off balance and cause the vehicle to shake or shimmy.
I t can cause a shimmy in the front end while driving if it is wore bad enough. It can cause your tires to wear abnormally. If it completely breaks, it can cause you to loose control of steering on the tire that it broke off of.
A single knocking noise when braking or turning can be caused by a faulty axle. The cost of replacement is usually around 1,000 dollars.
Sounds like the wheels need re-balancing - that would cause the vehicle to 'pull' to one side during braking.
