OK. I can't figure this out. I have a slight vibration when I turn left or right at slow speed. I have changed tie rod ends. The bearings(Moog), and even changed the CV axles. I also changed the sway bar bolts. All other bushings look ok but the front control arm rubber bushing looks a little dry rotted. Then work I have done has helped it a little but not gone. I am getting new front struts and tires this weekend but I don't know if that is it. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks. And my aurora is a 96 autobaun with only 45000 miles. Always garage kept.
I've had mysterious low speed shuddering caused by tread separation on one tire. Noticed it first with low speed turns combined with braking. Jack up the car and rotate the tires slowly and watch the tread pattern. If it deviates from a straight line the tread is probably separated.
Well I just put a set of nexen n5000 tires on the car and it has seemed to help out. About 90% vibration has gone but still just a very little when turning very sharp and slow. But it is such a major difference in the smoothness of the ride that a new set of tires has made I won't complain. It now feels like you are just floating down the road. The only other thing too do is figure out while my guages work sometime then sometimes they don't. Someone suggested that it has to do with key ignition switch.

Might check the power steering fluid and maybe replace a little of it. I had a similar problem a while back and just "spooned out" a bit at a time and replaced it with fresh fluid and it took care of my problem. Just something to check.
There is a GM bulletin out about steering shudder on certain years of the Classic. Fix is replace ps pressure hose with different one and re-drill a bunch of mounts and brackets. If you search hard enough you will find where I have posted the bulletin before.

I have experienced this with my 99. My 95 does not have this tendency. I do not think the shudder is dangerous or is due to wear of any kind. The hose routing and access is not easy and my 99 only does it under infrequent conditions so I am just living with it. Sall is correct there is a GM bulletin out on this. Good Luck Rich
