Can a bad wheel hub cause a shimy when hiting bumps and...

Can a bad wheel hub cause a shimy when hiting bumps and a shimmy at higher speeds? I've been having trouble with DW, got it fixed for the most part, just having trouble from JUST the drivers side tire now at higher speeds and when I hit bumps, only thing I can find is the drivers side wheel bearing has A LOT of play, meaning it's bad...

Sure but did you check ball joints.

Tell me, does the shimmy star and finish at around 60 to 80 KMs? Or 38 to 45 mph?

it doesn't stop at any speed after I get to about 45mph. I checked ball joints, ad no play at all, same with TREs, I've replaced my trackbar bushing and put a short arm kit on, which solved 90% of my DW, trust me, it was HORRIBLE before, atleast I can drive it now if it matters, I just started running 33s....

And when I say shimmy, you can feel it, but it isn't horrible, just a little shimmy in the steering wheel really..when I hit a bump at a higher speed, then I get a real shake for a couple seconds then it's fine

I would say that you have a problem elsewhere. There is a loose nut between the steering wheel and drivers seat! May want to replace that!!lol
