hello welcome to the site

does this happen while accelerating or while on decel ?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
it happens as soon as i start driving and stays constatnt. i can coast and it still shakes side to side
Expert:  Dino replied 7 years ago.

at a slow or fast speed ?

do you hear any type of noise like a woomp woomp noise ?

the reason im asking is the tires might be separated and causing this

can you run your hand over the flat of the tire and see if their is any large uneven sections?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
it makes no noise i can hear. all tires look real good. the car needs new brakes. would a rotor cause it to shake?
Expert:  Dino replied 7 years ago.

the brake rotors been warped will cause this only while braking.

if you can jack up the back of the car and spin the wheel and look carefully at the tire while it spins and see if you can see the tire wobble.

i have a strong feeling the tire is separated.

this feeling you have is pretty common when a tire separates

let me know what you find.
