- Wheel Balancing: The most common cause of high-speed vibration is imbalanced wheels. Getting your wheels balanced, especially with a road force balance, can often solve the issue. A road force balance is more comprehensive than a standard balance and can address more subtle discrepancies.
- Wheel Alignment and Tire Inspection: Check for any tire damage and ensure they are properly inflated. Also, consider getting a wheel alignment. Misaligned wheels can cause vibrations and uneven tire wear.
- Suspension and Steering Components: Vibrations can sometimes be due to worn-out suspension components like struts, tie rods, or control arms. Have these inspected, especially if your vehicle has high mileage or rough driving.
- Drive Axles and CV Joints: In front-wheel or all-wheel-drive vehicles, damaged drive axles or CV joints can cause vibrations. This is more common if the vibration increases with acceleration.
- Brake System: Warped brake rotors can also cause vibrations, particularly noticeable when braking. This would need a brake system inspection.
- Engine Mounts: Although less common, worn engine mounts can transmit engine vibrations to the entire vehicle.
