Default car periodic shaking on one side

Hi,

Last night my 99 camry started shaking during driving. It's like a
periodic fashion and seems like the left side is periodically up and
down. Could anyone give some suggestions ( when parking last time my
front tires slightly hit the curb, would this cause some loose parts
somewhere?)

Thanks a lot!

Regards,
Zhi

This COULD be caused by the inner CV joint on the LHS being worn.
You can check it by grasping it and trying to move it up & down. If it
moves much at all, it needs replacing.

You are saying it shakes for a few seconds and then doesn't for a few
seconds? Or does it shake the same all the way down the street? Slight
bump on the curb probably won't hurt anything. Is the wheel rim
damaged?

Does the shaking increase with speed? Or during hard acceleration? Bad
tire or weak strut can be among the many causes.

My camry had a similar issue for a few months. I took it to a repair shop
and they told me that the rim was damaged. Thankfully, Camry comes with a
full-size spare and I replaced the damaged one with the spare and all is
well now.
