stranger vibration

like the title says I've got weird vibration when i drive it kind of feels like theirs a big rock or screw in the tires but I've already checked for that. i also thought maybe it was a tire that's not balanced but I've only got 26 000 km on it so I'm not to sure.

If you have a stranger vibration.......I'd find out who the person is ASAP!! No sense some stranger getting all the fun of vibrating you and you not knowing who it is. LOL

So moving on past poking fun of you.......j/k

Did you do any service to your vehicle recently? When did you notice the vibration? When does it vibrate? All the time while driving or only when turning? Does it vibrate when you brake? Do you feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the entire vehicle?

These are all important in order for us to give you a reasonable diagnosis. As it stands, there are too many unknowns.

It could be a improper balanced rim/tire, a warped rotor, bad suspension components, etc.

no clue what to tell ya. but at one point i got a bad vibration. and it started after i pulled the front wheels n tires off to do the brakes. when i put them back on it shook bad above 45mph. i thought i messed up something on the brakes. replaced some hardware. everything was good. still shook. turned out to be my tires for whatever reason. i'd say check those first. then go from there.

the vibration started on its own i haven't had any work done to cause it, i can feel the vibration through the seat, and steering wheel, it happens all the time i can really feel it while I'm braking because the engine revving mixes with the vibration most of the time it happens at all speeds.
