Default vibrating all over the road

i started on my trip to Ontario, got about 3 hours in to the drive and the front of the car started to vibrate really bad as well as the steering wheel, i had to pull over and bring the car to a stop before it would stop. this happened 3 times and all 3 times i had to bring the car to a stop to stop the vibrating. it almost seemed like the front tire were about to fall off. when i got back home i check the whole front of the car out, and the only thing i found was that one of my mount retainers to the front sub frame was done. the mount that I'm talking about is the one on the right side in the rear, but there are 2 mounts on the right rear side and it was the front mount on the rear. can this cause the car to vibrate that bad, i still had the other rear mount in tack so i don't know what would cause this. i was running at 105/km

When you pulled over how long did it sit before you started out again? Did the car cool off completely? How long after you started driving again did this happen again? Did you make excessive hard stop before this happened? When you shook the frt end out did you look at the rotors? What do the front rotors look like? Are they blued or discolored? Do you have any pulling on way or the other during braking or just driving? Hopefully it'* a stuck caliper slider or piston.

under normal driving around 105/km, no braking, it just started. i pulled over to the side of the highway , when the car came to a complete stop, it stopped. i then toke off driving again and maybe one and a half hour later it done it again. i did notice today that when it starts to vibrate it also pulls to the right abit.

If you can jack up the front of the car so both front tires are off the ground. Inspect your tie rods, and check your steering knuckles for play.


I'd like to see pics of this broken mount retainer if you could.

The reason I ask about the pulling issue was maybe its a caliper thats sticking and once it get hot it is causing this. How are are the brakes? If you can get it to happen again try and see if it will change by shifting in and out of overdrive. Possibly in the trans You have a good one here
