Customer Question
My 1991 suzuki samari...

My 1991 suzuki samari gets the "shakes" in the front if you go past 40 mph...problem....solution? Help

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '91 Suzuki?

It is a soft top 4x4

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No one really wants to work on it...so yes I am on my own. I have not tried anything yet

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not the I can think of?

Hello and welcome to JA.... What condition are your tires in? This sounds to me like you are having a tire balance issue... Without being there to drive the vehicle myself I am going to need you to be my eyes and hands and explain to me exactly what you feel while you're driving the vehicle
