My experience with this type of issue is as floows:

You may have a broken coil spring or strut.
You may have excessively worn lower control arm(s).
You may have broken sway bar links.

In any case, this needs to be looked at ASAP.

Hope this helps.

1987 Toyota Camry having trouble replacing axle because the splines are offset and the axle won't go back in can u help me troubleshoot

I had a problem replacing the axles on my 88 Accord once because the splines and end of the shaft had been painted. I had to sand it down to get the axle to slide in. You also have to turn it until the splines line up in the grooves to slide in. Shouldn't take a lot of force.

Hi I'm replaceing the axle shaft on pass front on 96 camry And the bugger just won't slide into transaxle.Any ideas ?

use a slight twisting motion as you lift up on the entire axle sometimes the seating position can be up little higher than you might think if you lay the new and old axles next to each other and they appear to be the same size around and the same length it should go with little effort hope this helps

Feel shake in the floor and steering wheel at around 70 mph and a slight turn on the steering wheel you can feel it a little more. what parts could cause this? already had the wheel balances checked.

Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

Does my 1997 toyota camry ce 4 cylnder have abs im changing my front axel

ABS was optional on the 97 Camry CE - some have it, some don't. If your car is equipped with ABS, you should have an ABS indicator light on the dashboard, that goes on when you first turn the key in the ignition. But if you are not able to determine whether your car has ABS, it's not a problem. The axles compatible with ABS will also work if your Camry does not have ABS. They cost about the same as axles without ABS. So if you are not sure, just buy the axles for ABS.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 4.0L. Just recently bought and there's a popping noise in the front and when turning sharply it's like the wheels lock and the jeep refuses to move and it's also...

sounds like a bad cv joint in one (or both) of the front axles. is the popping sound more prevalent when in reverse, with the wheel turned? if so, i'd assume that it is a bad cv joint and one or both front axles will need to be replaced.
