1994 Chevrolet Silverado Front end shake in 2WD. Sign In

Hello. The front end on my Silverado shakes at highway speeds but its only in 2WD. If I put it in 4WD it drives like a dream. Anyone run into this problem before? I am going to check the tie rod ends and ball joints the next time I get it in the garage but I am wondering if anyone has any other suggestion to check? Thanks!

the 2wd vs 4wd issue is surprising to hear, AND 4wd at highway speeds I question that.

Anyway its BASICS - observe the joints moving as someone rocks steering wheel back and forth the culprit is often easy to spot, notorious for idler arms, I suspect that will yield a worn component. Then I would check ball joints.

In 4WD the only change is internal to the diff housing, simply put a slider connects the R axel to center spool... a stretch how that affects suspension ... maybe maybe bearings.. check the above first

Thanks for the reply! Highway speeds around my home are only 40-45mph so its not all that fast. The fact that it doesn't shake at all in 4WD also was also confusing to me. I'm hoping its something I can fix versus something like a transfer case that I would have to have fixed by a garage. I appreciate the advice, thanks! Anyone else have any experience that might help?
